Bill Skarsgard Hints At Exciting Story For It: Chapter 3 Movie

  • Published: 10 October 2019
  • It: Chapter One scared the pants off of audiences when it debuted in 2017, becoming the highest-grossing horror movie of all time and leaving fans hungry for more. And It: Chapter Two is certainly keeping pace with its predecessor at the box office. According to the Los Angeles Times,

    "[The film] scored $91 million in its first weekend, making it the second-biggest horror movie opening of all time, behind its 2017 predecessor."

    Together, the two films are likely to rake in a worldwide box office take somewhere in the neighborhood of $1.5 billion dollars. And this begs the question: Will there be an It: Chapter Three?

    Please note: We'll be discussing a few plot points from King's novel and the two films, so some spoilers are coming right at you!

    While both It movies were reasonably faithful to the source material, Stephen King's epic 1986 novel of the same name, they weren't completely so. Several set pieces solely appear in the films…like Stan's run-in with the creepy lady from the painting in the first film…and Bill's hall-of-mirrors nightmare in the second.

    One of the most notable changes is the fact that It: Chapter Two doesn't end with the same city-destroying storm that concludes the book. This difference could be telling.

    Following the success of It: Chapter One, studio execs may have advised director Andy Muschietti to leave the door open for a third installment. But if that's the case, he certainly isn't admitting it. In 2017, he did discuss the possibility of splitting Chapter Two into seperate films, telling Variety:

    "It would make sense because it would give me more turf to develop the characters and more of a canvas to develop the journey, but to be honest, there wasn’t a conversation about that and now we are designing the story as one single film."

    Of course, nothing motivates studio executives like big bucks…and if New Line ultimately decides to greenlight a third chapter, there's a number of tracks the film could take. In fact, Pennywise actor Bill Skarsgård has mentioned that he and Muschietti have kicked around an idea for a third It movie. In a recent sitdown with JoBlo, the actor opened up about those talks, saying that

    "Andy and I have discussed ideas for what a third movie would look like. I don't think it's quite what people expect. It's something different. The first two stories are the book, and the second film is the end of that story. So we would do something quite literally off book."

    Skarsgård goes on to reveal that

    "There are a few ideas floating around. I feel like I've done what I can with the incarnation of Pennywise as we know of him, so I think it would be a cool idea to change up a few things. So, without going into too much detail, there is a story that we're kind of excited about, but it's way too early to say. But we'll see, we'll see."

    The idea of a new "incarnation" of Pennywise is certainly an intriguing one, although it's safe to say there are about a million ways to get that concept wrong. Obviously, any additions to King's masterpiece would require a deft touch, but at least Muschietti has already demonstrated his considerable talent just by bringing It successfully to the big screen.

    Of course, even if It: Chapter 3 never comes to fruition, Pennywise could always return to theaters in a supercut of the first two films. And guess what? Muschietti has definitely considered the idea, as he recently told CinemaBlend:

    "I am thinking of a supercut. Which is basically the two movies told one after the other, adding everything that was lifted from them for length purposes. Great scenes that are more character moments, or things that we had to lift for other reasons. I’m also very excited about shooting extra material."

    Well, that news should certainly put a smile on your face.

    Of course, if that plan comes to fruition, we hope we're given an intermission or two…because watching an It supercut would certainly gobble up a gargantuan amount of time. Considering that Muschietti has already put this idea out in the public sphere, we're thinking a supercut could actually happen.

    As to whether we'll ever really see an It: Chapter Three, we suspect that the likelihood is pretty slim. And all things considered, that's probably for the best. The novel spins an epic and phenomenally terrifying yarn…but expanding the story would almost certainly do the book a disservice.

            Don't you think that pennywise was a regular circus clown and other people didn't think he was funny so they bullied him and teased and said things about him and they tapped into his biggest fear not being funny like a regular clown so instead of being funny he wanted to be scary a teaser a bully like his audience and he got really mad and that's how the turtle vomited our universe with pennywise in it and he was probally 27 when turned evil and clowns are suppose to make children laugh and he want's to scare children so that's why he haunts children and probably why he comes back every 27 years

                                The 2 movies combined are already five hours long. Who the hell would want to go see a 5+ hour long film not even structured in 3 acts?

                                  If they do a 3rd film, they’ll ruin everything they have built so well, as is very common with Hollywood sequels and prequels. Recognize a masterpiece when you have one and leave it alone for fxxx sakes!

                                                        I wouldn't mind another movie with them younger again, Pennywise clearly attacked them a lot so, it would be interesting to see what forms he came up with, maybe more of what happened to each individual loser when they split up, we got a little bit of that in the second one, but that was probably just one day and it would be interesting and heartbreaking to see a funeral for Georgie, perhaps all the Losers attended to support Bill

                                                          Show how pennywise actually became. He awoken the year he killed Georgie so why not touch that back story

                                                                                      If it’s a prequel then I want something that explains how pennywise the clown became said character and how he was created
