True Detective director Cary Fukunaga will reportedly direct adaptation of Stephen King's IT.
“… Cary Fukunaga is writing and directing Stephen King’s It for me, and I’m really excited for that. So I’m hoping that’ll be his next movie after the indie he’s shooting in Africa.

Press release on Under the Dome season 2.
CBS’S HIT SUMMER SERIES “UNDER THE DOME” BEGINS PRODUCTION ON SEASON TWO TODAY IN WILMINGTON, N.C.
Premiere Episode Written by Bestselling Author and Executive Producer Stephen King
March 3, 2014 – Production begins today in Wilmington, N.C. on the sophomore season of CBS’s hit summer series UNDER THE DOME. Executive producer Stephen King, the bestselling author of the novel the series is based on, wrote the first episode, which will be directed by executive producer Jack Bender.
The second season of UNDER THE DOME premieres Monday, June 30 (10:00 – 11:00 PM, ET/PT) on CBS. UNDER THE DOME was the #1 program last summer, with an average of 15.06 million viewers and 3.9/11 in adults 18-49, making it the most-watched scripted summer series in 21 years. UNDER THE DOME is licensed in 200 markets worldwide by CBS Studios International and is off to strong starts in countries where it has already premiered.
UNDER THE DOME is the story of a small town that is suddenly and inexplicably sealed off from the rest of the world by an enormous transparent dome. The town’s inhabitants must deal with surviving the post-apocalyptic conditions while searching for answers about the dome, where it came from and if and when it will go away.
UNDER THE DOME is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Amblin Television. Steven Spielberg, Stephen King, Neal Baer, Justin Falvey, Darryl Frank, Stacey Snider, Jack Bender and Brian K. Vaughan are executive producers.
