It sequel to release September 2019

The film picks up 27 years after the end of the first film

Published: 27th September 2017

The makers of the horror film It, New Line Cinema, an American film production label of Warner Bros, have announced that a sequel is scheduled to release on September 6, 2019.

Incidentally, another untitled Warner Bros film earlier scheduled to release on June 1, 2018 has been moved back to July 27, 2018, and is now titled Teen Titans Go. This is an adaptation of the comedic animated series based on the DC Comics team.

The It sequel will open over the same post-Labour Day frame as its predecessor, which set box office records when it debuted to a whooping $117 million earlier this month. The follow-up to the Bill Skarsgard-starring horror flick is currently slated to open against an untitled project from Blumhouse Productions.

The first film featured a group of unpopular kids in small-town Maine who battle an evil presence, the titular It, that feeds on fear. In its preferred form, a bloodthirsty clown named Pennywise, It is portrayed by Bill Skarsgard.

Andrés Muschietti is expected to return to direct the sequel. Gary Dauberman, who co-wrote the first film, will be penning the sequel as well. In adhering to the structure of Stephen King's original novel, the sequel will pick up 27 years after the first film and centre around the same group of characters who return to destroy It for good.
