‘IT’ holds the record for the biggest opening weekend in September, New Line and Warner Bros. will look to break the record in 2019 as ‘IT: Chapter Two’ hits theaters on September 6, 2019.
As of now, ‘It’ ($266 million) ranks sixth in the domestic box office for highest grossing R-Rated movie. The film will easily reach fourth place, but it will be hard to match the $370 million ‘The Passion of the Christ’ did back in 2004.
‘Chapter Two’ takes place 27 years after the first film with the ‘Losers Club’ in their late 30s and early 40s.
“I really wanted to focus on the emotional journey of the group of kids [in the first film]. Getting into that other dimension — the other side — was something that we could introduce in the second part. In the book the perspective of the writing… is always with the Losers, so everything they know about Pennywise is very speculative and shrouded in absurdity, so I wanted to respect that mystery feeling of not knowing what’s on the other side,” said director Andy Muschietti to Yahoo Movies.
Warner Bros. signed Gary Dauberman to work on the screenplay for the sequel. Muschietti has yet to be officially announced as the director. The 80s ‘Losers Club’ should return in flashbacks which means the original cast should return with Jaeden Lieberher, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Sophia Lillis, Finn Wolfhard, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs, Jack Dylan Grazer, Nicholas Hamilton, and Bill Skarsgård as Pennywise.
