Not only did it broke the record for most advance tickets sold by a horror film, but it is projected to gross anywhere between $90 million and $100 million during its opening weekend. It has been clearly popular with the fans and it has made so much money for Warner Bros, the studio will almost certainly be looking at ways to make more movies based on Pennywise The Clown, the demon that wreaks havoc on the Losers’ Club and the people of Derry.
Moreover, Barbara Muschietti has had already said that took as much of the story from King’s 1986 book as they can because when she was recently quizzed about a potential spin-off or sequel she told, “The book, as it is, is done.” But io9’s question Lead Andy Muschietti to tease that there’s still plenty of “mythology” to explore with Pennywise.
He said “There is whole mythology to the book though,” Muschietti explained. “Mythology is something that always has opportunities to explore. It [aka Pennywise] has been on Earth for millions of years. He’s been in contact with humans for hundreds of years, every 27 years.” He further added that “So you can imagine the amount of material. It’s always exciting to think of eventually exploring this mythology. It’s very exciting.” Unfortunately for fans, the filmmaker was quick to add, “But, for now, there’s nothing on the table.” This means that there is a chance for a third installment but it might take some time for it to come out.
