‘IT’ movie’s future uncertain with director Cary Fukunaga’s exit

‘IT’ movie’s future uncertain with director Cary Fukunaga’s exit

The upcoming movie to be based on Stephen King's chilling and bizarre novel IT is now on shaky ground, with the flick's director Cary Fukunaga abandoning the project. Fukunaga has enjoyed success with his work on True Detective, but his name won't be attached to New Line's rendition of King's book -- if the movie happens at all, at this point (it's likely another director will be found, but how long that'll take is anyone's guess). The reasons aren't officially known, but anonymous sources have teased possibilities.

Level 257: a day at the upscale Pac-Man themed arcade and lounge

Level 257: a day at the upscale Pac-Man themed arcade and lounge

"To play is human." Such is the philosophy behind Level 257, a new luxurious lounge, arcade, restaurant, and bowling center near Chicago. Whatever you think it is, you're wrong. It's not an arcade. It's not a bowling alley. It's not a lounge. It's not a restaurant. At least, it's not any of those things in the way you're thinking of them. Level 257 is a place all of its own, and no single part of it exists separate of the other. It is luxury that invites you to dress casually. It is an arcade woven around a miniature library. It is sparkling bowling lanes a few paces from a full bar and cushioned leather lounge seating. It is, ultimately, an experience.
