If you have already watched IT: Chapter 2 and you are a little sad that its over, then don't worry, there is still a chance that the franchise can move forward.
'It: Chapter 2' was one of the most anticipated movies of this year and if you are feeling sad that the movie is over, then don't worry, we have some good news for you that will help lift up your spirit. The director of both the movies, Andy Muschetti has revealed plans to make a supercut made up of footage from both the recent sequel and the record-breaking first chapter.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Muschietti said he’s ‘not done’ with the It adaptation and he also mentioned that the studio probably doesn't know about it. He explained, "We’re in talks with the studio to make a supercut, which is basically the two movies edited together with all the material that is not in the released versions. And yeah, there are a couple of scenes that I want to shoot to make this a new experience."
The director also said that his special edition supercut will contain all of the deleted scenes which were lifted from both chapters. Additionally, he will also add two sequences that he hasn't shot as of now and one of those sequences will be directly taken from Stephen King's novel itself. The director also confirmed that while he wants to remain ‘a little cryptic’ about it', one of the scenes is from the novel and the other one is not.
The runtime for the first 'IT' movie was 135 minutes and the second chapter clocked around 165 minutes, making the total runtime of both the movies come up to 300 minutes or five hours. Even though Muschetti estimates that the supercut will be extended to approximately six and a half hours. The director added, "People can choose how to see it, all in one or, you know, making little pauses. Or bingeing! Maybe it’s divided into episodes. People now, they binge a series for 10 hours of viewing, so it wouldn’t surprise me."
Also, 'It: Chapter 2' scored the second-highest opening weekend for a horror movie of all time and earned around $91 million from US audiences and there is absolutely no doubt this supercut will be just as highly anticipated. It could mainly be because of the first 'IT' movie was the only horror movie ever to open with over $100 million and there is no doubt that the director is hoping to recreate this with the supercut.
