Stephen King has had a love/hate relationship with many of the cinematic adaptations of his novels, best exemplified by his infamous dissatisfaction with Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining. Any filmmaker attempting to bring his stories to the silver screen has to be nervous about how the Master of Horror will react to their efforts.
Andy Muschietti, the director of both 2017’s IT and the upcoming IT: Chapter Two can rest easy. King revealed to his Twitter followers that he’s already seen the film–and he thinks it’s “terrific”!
We’ll be getting our first real look at what’s in store when the trailer for IT: Chapter Two hits the internet tomorrow.
The evil clown Pennywise returns 27 years later to torment the grown-up members of the Losers’ Club.
Muschietti directs IT: Chapter Two from a screenplay penned by Gary Dauberman. The film stars James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain, Bill Skarsgård, and Javier Botet. Look for it in US theaters beginning September 6th.
