Cary Fukunaga is very busy these days — after establishing himself with Sin Nombre and Jane Eyre, he went on to cement his career as one of the most exciting directors to watch with the first season of True Detective. His next film, Beasts of No Nation, is arriving on Netflix soon, and he’s heading into production on a two-film adaptation of Stephen King’s It, which should occupy much of his time. And yet, he’s just signed on to direct another film: the tragic true life story of father and son, Joe and Jadin Bell.

It was only a matter of time before we began to see the effects of Netflix’s foray into the film distribution business. We previously assumed that some major theater chains would refuse to show films which premiere simultaneously on the streaming service, but today brings confirmation of those assumptions, as some of the top theater chains have vowed not to screen Beasts of No Nation at their venues due to Netflix’s release plan.

Cary Fukunaga’s adaptation of Stephen King’s It is one seriously ambitious project, and given the massive size and the generation-spanning scope of the novel, it’s hardly surprising (and even something of a relief) that he’s splitting the story into two films. Fukunaga has a lot of work ahead of him, but most challenging will be the casting of Pennywise the clown, the terrifying entity made famous by Tim Curry in the ‘90s miniseries adaptation. Rest assured that Fukunaga isn’t taking that casting lightly.

Netflix is continuing to rack up film deals in a move that’s placing them shoulder to shoulder with other major distributors.

Cary Fukunaga’s ‘It’ Split Into Two Films, Separating the Past and Present Timelines

Stephen King’s ‘It’ is a beast of a book. Over its 1,000-plus pages, the novel follows a group of close-knit friends who do battle with a malevolent, child-killing force in their youth, only to reunite decades later to finish the job. It’s a messy, ambitious and insanely (perversely, even) detailed work. It feels unadaptable. But no one tell that to ‘True Detective’ director Cary Fukunaga, whose long-gestating adaptation is finally going before cameras next summer.

HBO's breakout 'True Detective' had long established that any potential season 2 would pick up with new story and a new cast, though we were still surprised to learn season 1 director Cary Fukunaga would leave the series behind as well. And while fans anxiously await casting news, 'True Detective' season 2 may pick up its next Oscar-winner in 'Exorcist' director William Friedkin.
