-Cary Fukunaga was the original director for the new IT film and oversaw much of the pre-production before dropping out in 2015 over creative differences.
-Will Poulter was set to play Pennywise.
-Cary's version was a lot darker and sexual (but not in the that kind of way ontd) with Beverlys father flat out attempting to rape her and it being revealed that IT spared her father back when he was a child since it could see how sadistic Bevs dad would become as an adult.
-There was a random masturbating scene with some random character and Richie was implied to be bi-sexual.
-Mike and his father had a stronger connection.
-Penny Wise's influence over people was more strongly implied as we would see the KKK under the influence.
-IT's origins would've been fleshed out more along with the final battle having IT take on the form of a weird looking starfish.
-Fukunaga and writing partner Chase Palmer still have a writing credit on the film due to several of their ideas making into the new version of the film.
I loved this movie and need the sequal ASAP!
