Dead Mouse productions (‘You’re So Cool, Brewster! The Story of Fright Night’, ‘Unearthed & Untold: The Path to Pet Sematary’, ‘Leviathan The Story of Hellraiser and Hellbound: Hellraiser II’) are set to tackle a TV adaptation of Stephen King’s ‘IT’ and Tim Curry, who played Pennywise, is confirmed to be involved.
