IT: Chapter Two writer Gary Dauberman discussed the potential for spin-off films and addressed the rumored supercut of both movies.
Director Andy Muschietti’s IT and the sequel Chapter Two successfully adapted Stephen King’s revered horror novel of the same name, but some fans have been wondering if the story of Pennywise could continue in spin-off films. During an interview with ComicBookMovie.com, IT: Chapter Two writer Gary Dauberman was asked if there was any chance of seeing spin-off films telling new stories about the horrifying Pennywise.
In response, Dauberman stated that he does believe IT spin-offs are possible and that there was only so much of the story they could tell with the two films. As Dauberman explained, spin-offs could expand upon elements from the novel and noted that the IT creature has likely been on Earth for a long time:
“Anything in the Stephen King Universe interests me but there’s only so much of the story we could tell in the two movie. There are definitely elements of the novel you could expand on and make its own movie. It’s just a question of whether or not people want to see it but I do think It was on this planet for a very, very, very long time and that’s a lot of bloodshed and a lot of stories to tell and I think you could do that for sure.”
Recently, it’s been rumored that Andy Muschietti apparently has plans to create of supercut of both IT films. While Dauberman confirmed he knows of Muschietti’s idea for an IT supercut and would love to see it, the writer added that the material cut from both films was removed for a reason:
“I know Andy has an idea about a ‘supercut’ which I would love to see but we cut things for a reason so if there was something I desperately wanted to see or wanted put in there, we could have found a way to put it in. That’s not to say that the stuff that’s not in there isn’t great but we put the stuff that’s in the movie there because that’s what makes it better.”
Dauberman concluded by saying he can’t think of anything he wishes hadn’t been cut or wants people to see, but he added, “I think there’s plenty of things there that fans would love to check out if there was to be a ‘supercut.'”
Here is the official synopsis for It: Chapter Two:
