FILARDI TO TACKLE KING'S IT
Variety reports that the WB network has set up a new division to develop and produce original movies, one of which will be a new televersion of Stephen King's IT. Previously turned into a two-part 1990 movie by ABC and director Tommy Lee Wallace, the novel will be adapted this time by Peter Filardi, who scripted the just-aired 'SALEM'S LOT two-parter for TNT; this IT will reportedly cram King's massive book into a single two-hour movie. Warner Bros. TV will also produce; no other talent or an airdate have been announced.
