Remember the so-called “Momo challenge”? If not, then contemplate your self fortunate — for now. That’s as a result of the viral hoax, which consisted of a picture of artist Keisuke Aiso’s sculpture “Mother Bird” that supposedly inspired youngsters to hurt themselves or commit suicide, may very well be heading to the large display screen. According to a report from Deadline that was later confirmed by Entertainment Weekly, at least one of many producers of the massively profitable It: Chapter One and its forthcoming sequel is behind the trouble.
Producer Taka Ichise is creating a movie adaptation of Aiso’s sculpture, per EW‘s affirmation. Whether or not the remedy will tackle the Momo problem stays unclear, although, because the unsettling piece of artwork is definitely primarily based on Chinese and Japanese people tales regarding a supernatural creature that snatches away youngsters. So, Pennywise… however not Pennywise.
If Ichise’s horror credit with It and It: Chapter Two aren’t sufficient, nonetheless, then contemplate this: his newest efforts have him “partnered with Orion Pictures and Roy Lee’s Vertigo Entertainment.” That issues as a result of the pair beforehand labored collectively on the American movie variations of The Grudge and The Ring, each of which started as massively profitable Japanese horror movies. So anybody who is likely to be fearful that Ichise’s try to rework the Momo problem into one other lame SNL skit shouldn’t have any something to fret about.
