Cary Fukunaga celebrates Red Nose Day

Chase Palmer, who sounds like an amalgamated “24″ character gone rogue, is adapting King’s ‘killer clown’ tale for the big screen. He wrote the aborted “Dune” remake for Paramount.

Horror vets Roy Lee and Dan Lin are producing “It”, with “Abraham Lincoln : Vampire Hunter” scribes Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg of KatzSmith Production producing.
