It’s a done deal, folks; world came down last night just hours after theaters began screening IT: The sequel is confirmed. Having seen the film myself, I’m hardly surprised; IT is fantastic! Variety is reporting that Gary Dauberman is finalizing a deal to pen Chapter 2. As someone who read the original script by Cary Fukunaga and Chase Palmer, I think this is a wise choice; Dauberman turned a potential train wreck into a near masterpiece.
Andy Muschietti, who directed “It,” is expected to return for the second installment, although he has not closed a deal yet. Producers Barbara Muschietti, Roy Lee, Dan Lin, Seth Grahame-Smith, and David Katzenberg are believed to be back as well.
