Stephen King’s ‘It’ Release Date Set by Warner Bros

The studio will also release Dax Shepard’s ”CHiPs“ in the summer of 2017

Warner Bros. has announced it will release Stephen King‘s “It” on Sept. 8, 2017 — a date the horror film currently has to itself.

Andy Muschietti is directing the film, which is in the midst of casting Pennywise the Clown, the terrifying villain originally portrayed by Tim Curry.

Additionally, Dax Shepard‘s comedy “CHiPs” will hit theaters on Aug. 11, 2017. It will take on Sony’s animated “Emoji Movie.”

Shepard stars alongside Michael Pena, Adam Brody, Kristen Bell, Vincent D’Onofrio, Maya Rudolph, Ben Falcone, Justin Chatwin, Rose Salazar, Adam Rodriguez, Jane Kaczmarek, Ryan Hansen and Jessica McNamee.

The movie is a remake of the cult TV show starring Erik Estrada, Larry Wilcox and Robert Pine that aired on NBC from 1977 to 1983.

Finally, Warners will release an untitled, PG-13 rated comedy on Dec. 22, 2017. That film will be pitted against the Weinstein Company’s “Six Billion Dollar Man” starring Mark Wahlberg, “The Croods 2” from DreamWorks Animation and 20th Century Fox, and an untitled live-action fairy tale film from Disney.
