‘IT’ Actor Reprising Georgie Denbrough Role in ‘Georgie’

Published

on

What if Georgie Denbrough hadn’t been murdered by Pennywise the Dancing Clown in the IT universe?  If Georgie had survived, what would his life look like today?

This is the premise of the upcoming short film Georgie, which is being co-written and produced by John Campopiano, who is currently in post-production on the feature-length documentary film project Pennywise: The Story of IT.  Ryan Grulich is directing Georgie, which stars Tony Dakota, the actor who portrayed Georgie Denbrough in the 1990 IT miniseries.

Campopiano says that his inspiration for Georgie came after Campopiano interviewed Dakota for the IT documentary.  “Tony has aspirations for returning to acting, and after working with him on his interview, I felt that it could be compelling to bring Tony back to the screen as Georgie Denbrough,” says the Boston-based Campopiano.  “I pitched the idea to both him and my contact in Seattle.  Since May, we’ve been working on a script, and I feel that we now have an exciting and spooky script.”

Campopiano says that Georgie will explore what Georgie Denbrough’s world would look like today had he escaped death and managed to live some semblance of a normal life in the not-so-normal town of Derry.  “The story of Georgie is, essentially, a fever dream in which we’re transported back to the Denbrough household and the world of Sharon Denbrough, Bill and Georgie’s mother,” says Campopiano.  “It’s full of twists and relies heavily on imagery.  With the exception of one line, there is no dialogue.”

Campopiano aims to shoot Georgie in mid-November and release the film digitally in early 2019.  “Our goal for Georgie is to get it into film festivals and, eventually, stream it for fans worldwide,” says Campopiano.  “With the newfound interest in IT, thanks to Andy Muscietti’s film, and fresh offerings of new Stephen King-based films and series, we feel confident that the time is right for this Georgie project.  In addition, because Tony Dakota has been off the radar for nearly twenty-five years, we feel that fans will soak up this blast of nostalgia and enjoy seeing him return to the screen again.”

To cover the cost of producing Georgie, Campopiano and Grulich have launched a crowd-funding campaign (click here).  “A few weeks ago, we launched a modest Indiegogo campaign to help us raise some funds to make the project a reality, and we have about ten days left,” says Campopiano, who says the running time for Georgie will be between four and five minutes.  “Our goal for that campaign is flexible, and we’re poised to make the film regardless of what we bring in.”

A teaser trailer for Georgie can be viewed here.  For more information about Georgie, click here to visit the website for Creepy Kingdom, the production company behind Georgie.

Today, Illfonic gave big details on a game that had been teased earlier in the year. That’s right, Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed is on its way to PC and Consoles this fall. The game will be a huge immersive multiplayer and single-player experience. In the game, you will be able to side with the ghosts becoming several iconic spectrals including Slimer. In addition to playing as a ghost, you can become a Ghostbuster, suit up in totally custom suits and bust ghosts using proton accelerators.

Use classic equipment as well as new untested gear, while you travel through New York visiting spots that were popular in the films and beyond. Cause, not only is the game pulling from the films, it is also grabbing characters and locations from The Real Ghostbusters.

Work with Ray, Winston and the guys in order to become the best Ghostbuster that you can be. The only question is, are you ready for mass hysteria? Cats and dogs living together? We are too. Let’s get to bustin’.

If you digitally pre-order the game it gets you a playable Slimer, a custom particle thrower and proton pack, and special clothing colorways.

The synopsis for Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed goes like this:

Form a team with up to three other Ghostbusters to track down Ghosts haunting a number of locales. Sniff out paranormal activity with the P.K.E. Meter and charge it to unleash a short-range pulse disabling Ghost movement. Unveil hidden rifts acting as the Ghost’s spawn points and teleportation portals, and destroy them. Use the powerful Particle Throwers to capture the Ghost, deploy a trap, and wrangle them into it before they escape! 

Meanwhile, the Ghost works alone, roaming around stages like the Museum, an abandoned Prison, and other spooky locations, including a new one to be revealed at Gamescom. Frighten civilians to scare them away. Possess objects to raise the overall Global Haunt percentage, to regain ghost power, or just cause mass hysteria. Use slime to temporarily stun Ghostbusters. Move the rifts to keep them guessing, summon minions to make an escape, and show the Ghostbusters they should be afraid of this Ghost!

Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed will be available on October 18 via PC, Epic Games Store, PlayStation 4|5, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One. Pre-orders are available starting today!

To those before. To those after. To us now. And to those beyond. Seen or unseen. Here but not here. Christopher Pike’s The Midnight Club is a classic. That is why it is so great to see these characters come to life in the first tease from the series.

Christopher Pike’s The Midnight Club is a classic. That is why it is so great to see these characters come to life in the first tease from the series.

It is a short tease but, one that those familiar with the works will be really excited to see. The characters in The Midnight Club are larger than life with their big hearts and stories, so putting physical faces to these is really great.

At a hospice with a mysterious history, the eight members of the Midnight Club meet each night at midnight to tell sinister stories – and to look for signs of the supernatural from the beyond. A new horror series from Mike Flanagan and Trevor Macy’s Intrepid Pictures (The Haunting of Hill House, Midnight Mass) and Leah Fong, based on the creative work of bestselling author Christopher Pike.

It is also really exciting to know that the team behind Netflix’s The Haunting of Hill House is behind the series as well.

We can’t wait to join The Midnight Club when it arrives on Netflix beginning October 7.
