Fans of Stephen King‘s ‘It‘ were blown away when Andy Muschietti‘s first film wowed audiences. Now, with the release of ‘It Chapter Two’ quickly approaching, it looks as if the director isn’t quite done with the story. While many releases end up having a director’s cut on top of the theatrical releases it sounds as if Muschietti might have something even more in mind assuming New Line wants to pursue his idea.
When asked about the home release of ‘It,’ Muschietti shared:
“The possibilities are open. 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.”
While the director’s cuts would likely include deleted scenes and a few changes, a supercut of truly combining the two films above could prove of interest to fans everywhere. While the movies are split with The Loser’s Club as kids in the first chapter and adults in the second, the original novel didn’t quite work that way. This could easily be a case of the two movies just put together for a massive film, but the original tale was able to weave a narrative which had readers jumping between the present day and the past.
This would be a massive undertaking on the director’s part but one which fans of the book and of this style of storytelling would likely be happy to check out.
What do you think would be in a director’s cut for both ‘It’ movies? Would you love to see Andy Muschietti make a supercut of the two films? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
Because every 27 years evil revisits the town of Derry, Maine, “IT CHAPTER TWO” brings the characters—who’ve long since gone their separate ways—back together as adults, nearly three decades after the events of the first film.
We’ll float with ‘It Chapter 2’ on September 6th, 2019!
