After the huge success of IT (Chapter 1) becoming the highest grossing horror film domestically with The Exorcist (released in 1973) still holding the spot as the highest grossing horror film internationally. Naturally, there would be talks about a sequel. Not to mention that at the end of the film, we found out that IT, was actually a Chapter one. We now have a release date for the next film!
IT, which is based on the novel written by Stephen King and also a TV mini-series (released in 1990) is set to release in theaters September 6, 2019! Andy Muschietti is returning (He directed Chapter 1) as well as Gary Dauberman who is set to write the script. According to Muschietti, “Part two is about these characters 30 years later as adults with flashbacks to 1989 when they were kids.”
