IT’s Director Promises The Sequel Will Be Even Freakier Than The First! Warner Bros. Pictures

While most of us haven't had the time to even see the 2017 re-imagination of IT, let alone get past the nightmares it brings on, talks of the darker, creepier sequel have already begun! 

We first learned that the film's director, Andy Muschietti, was working on a script for the horror movie's sequel back in July, where he gave us some insight, revealing that we could expect to see the same characters, 30 years on. 

Now, speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Andy has let us in on some more details of the upcoming sequel... revealing it'll be 'darker than the book'


“If we’re telling the story of adults, we are going to have flashbacks that take us back to the ‘80s and inform the story in the present day,” he said, touching quickly on previous details. 

“My idea of Mike [Hanlon] in the second movie is quite darker from the book.

“I want to make his character the one pivotal character who brings them all together, but staying in Derry took a toll with him. I want him to be a junkie actually. A librarian junkie. When the second movie starts, he’s a wreck,” he continued. 

There you have it, folks... the characters are about to get even darker. Fun, fun times ahead!
