Andrés Muschietti Is At It Again

The killer clown Pennywise has now had two films based of the renowned novel “It” by Stephen King. The first was a 3-part mini series that debuted on ABC. The second re-make released in 2017 and was the highest grossing horror film of all time. And if you haven’t seen it, you’re seriously missing out. Undoubtedly, the projector scene will go down in history as one of the most iconic horror moments in the 21st century.

Now, production has begun on the second installment of the series, as the final words that appear before the end credits on this R-rated masterpiece shocked all fans by revealing it was only “Chapter 1.”

Anyone who has seen the original Tim Curry classic knows that it bounces between The Loser’s Club as they battle the demonic entity of Derry, Maine, as both children and adults. Muschietti’s first crack at the clown focused solely on the kids, putting actors like Finn Wolfhard in the spotlight for a frightful yet funny spin that delivered an equal amount of CGI scares and gut-busting glory.

Now, we finally have the full cast of The Loser’s Club who will be taking center stage as adults, and it features huge names like Jessica Chastain, a grown-up Beverly Marsh, and James McAvoy, as a (hopefully) stutter-free Bill. Best of all the kids who held down the first movie will return in flashbacks, meaning we’ll get more of what we loved from the first movie mixed with brand new and promisingly more frightening fun.

September 6th is the slated release date for the horror sequel, with Bill Skarsgård reprising his role as Pennywise. And while many debated whether Curry or Skarsgård played the role better, my money is definitely on the latter actor. Pennywise’s portrayal was so much more painstakingly demonic and twisted in the 2017 version, while Curry left an unsettling yet unserious vibe that many questioned if it was intentionally supposed to be scary or silly.
