You could do a two-hour movie, but imagine a seven-season It.”
The standard Stephen King novel has beforehand been tailored right into a TV mini-series in 1990 with Tim Curry taking over the position of Pennywise. However, the 1986 novel was most lately tailored into two characteristic movies by director Andy Muschietti together with 2017’s It and 2019’s It Chapter Two starring Bill Skarsgård within the titular position.
