I think it’s safe to say at this point that Mama director Andy Muschietti ‘s two-film adaptation of Stephen King’s IT is one of the most celebrated and beloved horror movies of the decade.
And today Annabelle Comes Home and The Nun screenwriter Gary Dauberman says he thinks there are definitely elements of King’s novel that could expand into further movies.
Specifically, during a recent interview at ComicBookMovie.com he said, “I do think it’s possible. Anything in the Stephen King Universe interests me but there’s only so much of the story we could tell in the two movies. There are definitely elements of the novel you could expand on and make its own movie.”
He adds, “It’s just a question of whether or not people want to see it but I do think It was on this planet for a very, very, very long time and that’s a lot of bloodshed and a lot of stories to tell and I think you could do that for sure.”
The last time we saw Pennywise on the big-screen was in IT: Chapter Two which told the tale of the evil clown who returns 27 years later to terrorize the town of Derry once again. And now adults, The Losers Club have long since gone their separate ways. But when people start disappearing, Mike Hanlon calls the others home for one final stand. Damaged by scars from the past, the united Losers must conquer their deepest fears to destroy the shape-shifting Pennywise — now more powerful than ever.
Directed by Andy Muschietti from a screenplay written by Gary Dauberman based on the novel by Stephen King, IT: Chapter Two was produced by Barbara Muschietti, Dan Lin, and Roy Lee. Warner Bros. Pictures released it back on September 6, 2019.
