IT Chapter One and IT Chapter Two Super Cut in the Works
Director Andy Muschietti is still tinkering with his epic follow-up to the blockbuster horror film IT and revealed to SFX Magazine that he is working on a super cut that will combine parts one and two into one long feature film. He is also working on another cut of Chapter Two that is based on his original director’s cut that was nearly four hours in length.
“The possibilities are open,” he said. “There’s a version where the two movies are cut together. There’s a version where there’s a special director’s cut of number one and a special director’s cut of number two. And I’m happy to basically work on every one of them.”
The outlet notes that none of these releases have been given the green light in terms of an official release, but given the popularity of the first film — not to mention the projected box office haul of the sequel — it’s more than likely the studio will release several versions of the movie as long as people are willing to buy them.
Twenty-seven years after the Losers Club defeated Pennywise, he has returned to terrorize the town of Derry once more. Now adults, the Losers have long since gone their separate ways. However, people are disappearing again, so Mike, the only one of the group to remain in their hometown, calls the others home. Damaged by the experiences of their past, they must each conquer their deepest fears to destroy Pennywise once and for all…putting them directly in the path of the shape-shifting clown that has become deadlier than ever.
The cast of IT: Chapter Two includes James McAvoy (X-Men franchise, Split) as Bill, Jessica Chastain (Crimson Peak, The Martian) as Beverly, Bill Hader (Barry, Trainwreck) as Richie, Jay Ryan (Beauty and the Beast) as Ben and James Ransone (Generation Kill) as Eddie, with Andy Bean (Here and Now) as Stanely Uris, Isaiah Mustafa as Mike, Teach Grant (Altered Carbon, Damnation) as Henry Bowers, Jess Weixler (The Son, Chained for Life) as Bill’s wife, Xavier Dolan (Boy Erased) as Adrian Mellon, Will Beinbrink (Queen of the South) as Tom Rogan and, of course, the return of Bill Skarsgård as the clown Pennywise.
