Stephen King talks about his involvement in 'It'

Warner Bros

The first has arrived to rave reviews and tells the story of the Losers' Club when they were kids. While the title "It" refers to Pennywise, he is not what makes this film so meaningful.

IT is a feature film adaption of Stephen King 1986 horror novel about a demon that preys on neighborhood children. Andres Muschietti directed It, and he's on board for the second film of the story too.

"We've been fans of Stephen King ever since he started writing and read most, if not all of his books and we've collected them as well", said Ken Palazzolo of MI.

The report comes to us from /Film, who says producers Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg have already gotten to work on a sequel. Andy Muschietti was the director.

"He's definitely on my Rushmore of horror writers", Dauberman said, also mentioning Edgar Allan Poe, Christopher Pike and R.L. Stine.

From the moment we first see Pennywise's eyes pierce the darkness from the bowels of a Derry sewer drain, actor Bill Skarsgard's masterful portrayal of the dancing clown sets the stage for the terror that lies beneath the surface.

It dived, as 14 investors sold TRS shares while 49 reduced holdings. 81 funds opened positions while 371 raised stakes. Finally, State of Wisconsin Investment Board boosted its position in shares of Apple by 15.5% in the 1st quarter.

If everything goes according to plan, it's possible that we could see IT: Chapter Two as early as 2019. He's absolutely terrifying. For the slight drool when Pennywise talks, to his ghoulish squeals of laughter, this Pennywise will scare another generation of kids who watch this movie when they aren't supposed to.

It centers on a group of seven children known as "The Losers Club" who live in Derry, Maine, a fictional town that's part of King's universe.

The most pervasive manifestation of "It", Pennywise the Dancing Clown (Bill Skarsgard), is what even people who know nearly nothing about "It" will recognize, but Pennywise isn't what makes "It" so great.

All of the Losers will return although it's unclear who will play the adult versions of these characters.

Furthermore, the snappy, comical dialogue between the young cast - coupled with a cool 80s soundtrack - offers moviegoers some much-needed reprieve from the menacing villain that lurks around the corner.

The last time that we saw It adapted for the screen was the 1990 mini-series starring Tim Curry.
