As it was anticipated for many months, IT scored big time in the box office. Andrew Muschietti’s readaptaion of the Stephen King novel was truly a work of art. The hype after the film is still lingering, especially give the fact that IT: Part 2 is in the works. The storyline for Part 2 takes place 27 years after the Loser’s Club defeated Pennywise – returning to Derry as adults.
Bill Skarsgard, who plays Pennywise told IGN that the sequel will be more adult-themed and psychological:
“The first movie worked so well at what it is trying to do, I think, and ultimately that is the kids’ story, and you follow these kids and you sort of fall in love with these kids. And the second one will be the adult story. And I think the right way to do it is to make that movie actively different. … I think there might be worth exploring sort of the psychological aspects of horror, but also maybe the sort of cosmological existence of this being. What is he, and where does he come from?”
It has been stated in previous interviews with Andy and other members of the IT writing team that this film will absolutely be much darker than the previous film. For those that have read the book or even seen the 1990 mini series, it is certainly understood why.
“And, you know, it’s hardly answered in the novel, either. I mean, it’s very abstract. And I kind of like that. It could be almost a sort of surrealistic sort of psychedelic trip if you go into the mind of Pennywise. And if you’ve read the novel you know that they do actually go into his mind. Or they go into this transdimensional place, and they sort of beat him in this place. Which might be interesting, what that place would be, and what would it look like. There are opportunities, I think, and I’m excited for it.”
Directed by Andrew Muschietti and Written by Gary Dauberman, IT: Chapter Two will arrive in theaters on September 6, 2019.
“Part two is about these characters 30 years later as adults,” Muschietti recently noted, “with flashbacks to 1989 when they were kids.”
