In the meantime, check out the trailer and synopsis for 2017’s IT below.
Seven young outcasts in Derry, Maine, are about to face their worst nightmare — an ancient, shape-shifting evil that emerges from the sewer every 27 years to prey on the town’s children. Banding together over the course of one horrifying summer, the friends must overcome their own personal fears to battle the murderous, bloodthirsty clown known as Pennywise.
Muschietti directed IT from a script penned by Gary Dauberman; the film stars Bill Skarsgård, Jaeden Lieberher, and Finn Wolfhard.
