You may have heard about a little film called IT. In case you haven’t, IT is director Andrés Muschietti‘s adaptation of a classic Stephen King horror novel by the same name. Its story revolves around a group of kids who call themselves the Losers Club and who band together one summer to fight back against an ancient evil entity that appears mainly as Pennywise the Dancing Clown. Because IT absolutely blew away box office estimates, a sequel is unofficially 100% on the way from New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. And it’s to that sequel that we turn today to talk about what we know so far and what we can expect to see in IT: Chapter Two.
IT screenwriter Gary Dauberman will return to script the sequel, which is likely due out sometime in 2019. (Be sure to see what Dauberman had to say about writing the first movie in this interview.) While it sounds like the 80s Losers will be back in some fashion for the follow-up film, the young cast has already turned in their wish list for who should play their older selves in the sequel. No casting announcements have been made just yet, but if this dream cast comes together, it’d be a pricey one.
