While most people are getting very excited for It: Chapter Two, the makers of the 1990 miniseries are not so stoked about being left out.
Konigsberg died in 2016, at the age of 83. Sanitsky is pursuing the case through the partners’ corporate entities.
The suit alleges Sanitsky and fellow producer Frank Konigsberg signed a deal after the series was complete guaranteeing backend participation and rights to involvement on sequels, spin-offs, or remakes.
According to Variety, the suit also alleges Warner Bros. owes the two producers at least $1 million from the miniseries.
It further claims they’re entitled to 10% of net profits from any remake. This would amount to tens of millions of dollars.
Just yesterday, the official trailer for the upcoming second instalment of the movie was released.
One of the biggest reveals is that 27 years later, the Losers’ Club members have forgotten everything they went through.
The trailer also shows Mike (Isaiah Mustafa) telling his friends even though they forgot about Pennywise, he didn’t just disappear.
The trailer also might have shown the scene writers keep teasing that is the “most blood that’s ever been in a horror film.”
