It’s safe to say that ‘It’ under the direction of Andy Muschietti is probably one of the best horror novel-to-screen adaptations of all time. With that being said, releasing ‘It Chapter Two’ just two years after the first film’s successful debut is a pretty good call.
From a production standpoint, there was absolutely no way Warner Bros. would wait two decades or more to make an It sequel with the young Losers Club. And fans loved the first 2017 film so much, chapter two rolled out just in time if you ask them.
It Chapter Two’s ensemble cast rounded up the likes of James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain, Bill Hader and more for the Losers Club’s return. Something that most fans would describe as the perfect casting choice. However, it’s hard not to wonder how the sequel would actually be like if the first film’s young cast returned to make it 25 years from now.
Well, if you ask them they’re totally up for it. Chosen Jacobs, Finn Wolfhard, Jack Dylan Frazer, Jaeden Martell, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Sophia Lillis, and Wyatt Oleff was asked if they would be on board for an It Chapter Two remake in an interview with Cinemablend. In the same interview, their adult counterparts McAvoy, Hader, Chastain, Andy Bean, Isaiah Mustafa, and James Ransone were also present.
They all warmed up to the idea of a sequel shot 25 years from now and according to the movie news outlet its because they all share a sentimental feeling towards the franchise and have become friends during the time they spent together.
