IT is a horror thriller based on the famous novel of the same name by writer Stephen King.
On the sequel to IT, in an interview in July, director Andy Muschietti said he hoped to start shooting it in 2018. The specific schedule has not been determined. The film crew will work for 2 years to make the new installment as scheduled.
The second installment of the film will be different from the first one but based on Stephen King's novel. IT mainly tells the story about the children of the "Loser Club" group in Derry, Maine who fight against the evil clown Pennywise.
In the next part, the story features these characters as they are adults and return to the town of Derry when Pennywise comes back and continues the bloody massacre.
As THR has reported, IT screenwriter Gary Dauberman will be returning to pen the sequel. Though there has been no official announcement, it’s presumed that Andy Muschietti will be returning to direct. With such a huge success on their hands, in fact, it’s unlikely that much will change in terms of producers, etc, as well. There will, of course, be some new cast members, as Chapter 1 took place in the past, and Chapter 2 will be in the present. However, the beloved stars of Chapter 1 will also reportedly be appearing in the sequel in flashbacks.
IT was launched in early September this year. In the first three days, the film grossed $ 123.4 million. Pennywise clown continues to hit the box office, breaks the record of The Exorcist ($ 232.9 million) and becomes the highest grossing R-rated horror film of all time in North America. Compared to The Exorcist, IT is an easier box-office boom because of its relatively less intense experience; it’s something audiences can revisit again and again for the thrills and chills without the uncomfortable existential conflict posed by a film like The Exorcist. In other words, IT is more marketable, though it’s 100% earned every penny it makes.
Child actors have made the success of the movie besides the clown Pennywise.
Compared to other blockbusters, IT had a modest $35 million production budget but grossed huge profits, $266 million domestically and $478 million worldwide. The film has helped to save a boring summer of Hollywood with a series of blockbuster failures.
Swedish actor Bill Skarsgård will continue to play Pennywise’s clown in Part 2. He says that this is an interesting character that needs to be explored and explored further.
With 2 years of preparation, IT 2 promises to be as successful as the first episode.
