New Line and Warner Bros. are keen on giving the people what they want, and apparently what they want is a sequel to the Andy Muschietti adaptation of Stephen King’s classic story. It’s already been announced, and it’s poised to burst into theaters on September 6, 2019.
Variety reports that the production will be another labor from the same set of creators who brought the first movie to life, with director Muschietti returning as well as screenwriter Gary Dauberman.
But what could the sequel possibly deal with? It might not make that much sense unless you’ve read the original novel, but originally the Losers’ Club ends up dealing with the crimson-haired Pennywise with some strange tidbits about interdimensional travel 30 years into the future after being terrorized as children. It appears this might be a topic of discussion with the sequel, as Muschietti revealed to Yahoo Movies during an interview.
“Getting into that other dimension — the other side — was something that we could introduce in the second part,” the director states. Oh, great. So not only does Pennywise exist in one reality, but another as well? That’s something to think about as you drift off to sleep tonight.
