The clowns are here to stay in September according to Variety. The sequel to the hit Stephen King adaptation that took the September box office by storm this year has set for a Seprember 6, 2019 release date.
Andy Muschietti, who directed "It," is expected to return for the second installment. Producers Barbara Muschietti, Roy Lee, Dan Lin, Seth Grahame-Smith, and David Katzenberg are believed to be back as well.
IT has taken in over $450 million worldwide, has taken in over $250 million domestically, and held the number one spot at the box office for two weeks. IT had one of the biggest horror openings of all time, has been critically hailed, and has scared an entire new generation when it comes to be being afraid of clowns. The movie is a hit so it's not surprising that they are making sure the next one is out in two years.
Made for about $35 million, "It" stars Bill Skarsgard as Pennywise along with Jeremy Ray Taylor, Sophia Lillis, Finn Wolfhard, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs, Jack Dylan Grazer, Nicholas Hamilton, Jaeden Lieberher, and Jackson Robert Scott.
