It by Stephen KingWelcome to Derry, Maine ...
It’s a small city, a place as hauntingly familiar as your own hometown. Only in Derry the haunting is real ...
They were seven teenagers when they first stumbled upon the horror. Now they are grown-up men and women who have gone out into the big world to gain success and happiness. But none of them can withstand the force that has drawn them back to Derry to face the nightmare without an end, and the evil without a name.
Why It Chapter Three (probably) won't happen
Will there be an IT Chapter 3 or a prequel movie? Pennywise has reawakened and awaits them with new horrors. But when they're called back to Derry in by Mike Hanlon Isaiah Mustafa , the memories come flooding back. IT was a massive hit for Warner Bros. Here's what we know. Further, Pennywise's origin is revealed and the Losers Club also bring their battle against the evil clown to a definitive end. However, that doesn't mean there aren't options for more IT movies without this batch of human characters.
The promotional material for IT: Chapter 2 suggests that it will be the end of the Pennywise saga. That said, director Andy Muschietti has hinted at the possibility that he has more stories to tell, and that he is open to the possibility of directing a third film in the IT franchise. But what would be it be about? Will the ensemble cast of kids and adults return? Read on for more details about the rumored IT: Chapter 3.
Just look at the Halloween and Nightmare on Elm Street franchises. However, since It is based on a novel with a clear beginning, middle and end, an It: Chapter Three is not possible. Nevertheless, with such huge box office success, you can bet Warner Bros will be looking at another way to make a third movie. Clearly, a Pennywise prequel is possible seeing as he was terrorising the residents of Derry every 27 years prior to and when he finally met his demise. In fact, director of both It movies Andy Muschietti has teased that a Pennywise spin-off really could happen.
What a terrifying proposition!
Note: Contains spoilers for It Chapter Two. It Chapter Two looks set to follow in the footsteps of the first movie and be a box-office success, so usually we'd be thinking about the next movie already. Speaking to Digital Spy before the release of the movie, director Andy Muschietti certainly feels as though this is the end. This is the conclusion of the story between the Losers versus Pennywise. This is the end. At the end, there's a conclusion, there's a resolution," he explained. And there certainly is a resolution.
Mild spoilers for It Chapter Two ahead. The It sequel marks the end of the Loser's Club saga as Stephen King originally wrote it, but there might be more to the story, at least on film. In a recent interview, the It Chapter 2 director hinted that It Chapter 3 could happen , which means it's possible Pennywise will continue haunting our dreams for years to come. In a new interview with io9, It Chapter 2 director Andy Muschietti and producer Barbara Muschietti talked about the possibility of another It movie. For those that haven't read Stephen King's It and don't want to have Chapter Two spoiled for them, you might want to turn back now, since this is where things get a little spoiler-y. Consider that a warning for what you're about to read. So you can imagine the amount of material.
