IT Sequel Planned For Bill Skarsgård’s Pennywise

Director Andrés Muschietti has revealed to Bad Taste that his next movie will be a sequel to the forthcoming adaptation of Stephen King’s IT, which stars Bill Skarsgård as Pennywise the clown.

IT tells the story of seven adults who return to their hometown of Derry, Maine to confront a nightmare they had first stumbled upon as teenagers… An evil without a name… IT.

However, the movie which is released September 8th in the US will tell only the half of the story, focusing on the protagonists as children. Plans for a conclusion which tells the adults’ story had only been rumoured until now.

When asked if his next project would be Robotech movie Shadow Of The Colossus, Andrés Muschietti told Bad Taste: “No, IT 2 is my priority. I will do Robotech, if it happens, later.”
