FILARDI TALKS IT & DEVIL

The Creature Corner recently spoke to scribe Peter Filardi (The Craft) about his latest effort 'Salem's Lot, Stephen King's tale of small town tale vampirism once adapted for celluloid by Tobe Hooper and writer Paul Monash. In talking about the Lot update, Filardi dished a few details about his next tangle with King, a fresh adaptation of IT.

Filardi says he has already turned in his outline for the redux to producer Mark Wolper (who also executive produced the new Lot) and Warner Bros. Television. 'It's a tricky adaptation to get into two hours,' Filardi says. 'Of course they'd like to update it. But we think we have a neat angle. If you remember ['Stuttering Bill' Denbrough] the writer was sort've the main character. But we're going to take it from Beverly Marsh's point of view.'

In the 1990 Tommy Lee Wallace-directed adaptation, Ginger Snaps' Emily Perkins played Beverly Marsh as a youngster while Annette O'Toole starred as her older incarnation. Filardi is optimistic that shifting to a more feminine perspective poses a unique challenge. 'Here's this girl in the center of this big ensemble of guys. Going with her point of view is neat, it'll allow us a little bit of license. I think it could be great too. [Retelling IT is] another cool, more interesting exploration of friendship and time and how we all kind of grow up despite our best efforts not to.'

Filardi is also setting out on the infernal task of adapting Clive Barker's The History of the Devil for the Sci-Fi Channel. 'Going from stage to film we're really going to be able to open it up and dramatize it. It's really not so much a horror thing though as it is John Milton meets John Grisham,' he says with a chuckle.
