You remember that creepy 1990's TV Mini Series called IT which involved a very creepy clown played by Tim Curry? Oh and that clown probably gave you nightmares that will haunt you for the rest of your life. Well it was annouced last year a remake was being made by Warner Bros and now more news on how it's slowly progressing. Recently Warner Bros moved the project to their division of New Line Cinema. New Line Cinema also known in the horror genre recently with films such as The Nightmare on Elm Street Remake and Friday The 13th remake.
There is no word yet if any changes will be made to the current project at hand but Cary Fukunaga known for his work in HBO's True Detective is still attached to direct the project. It is also still planned to split the film in two seperate parts. If you ever read the novel like myself you would know how huge it is and how much source material can be taken off it. The release date is currently unknown.

Wikipedia - It is a 1986 horror novel by American author Stephen King. The story follows the exploits of seven children as they are terrorized by an eponymous being, which exploits the fears and phobias of its victims in order to disguise itself while hunting its prey. "It" primarily appears in the form of a clown in order to attract its preferred prey of young children. The novel is told through narratives alternating between two time periods, and is largely told in the third-person omniscient mode. It deals with themes which would eventually become King staples: the power of memory, childhood trauma, and the ugliness lurking behind a façade of traditional small-town values. The novel won the British Fantasy Award in 1987, and received nominations for the Locus and World Fantasy Awards that same year. Publishers Weekly listed It as the best-selling book in the United States in 1986.
