Back to the drawing board!

It looks like New Line Cinema needs to find another director for the big screen adaptation of Stephen King's It — because Cary Fukunaga has officially left the project!

According to reports, the True Detective director was butting heads with the studio during the development of his two-part adaptation of the horror classic centering around a demonizing clown who terrorizes a group of children.

The biggest reason for the Fukunaga's departure was New Line's recent budget cuts for the film, for which the director did not want to compromise his artistic vision.

One reason New Line could be re-tooling It is due to Poltergeist's not-so-great performance in the box office its opening weekend — because that horror remake had a scary clown in it, too!

It's a shame the director and studio couldn't work through their issues, as the studio is not moving forward with shooting this summer like they planned.

As for now, let's hope Pennywise the Clown scares these movie executives into finding a new director and getting this show on the road!
