New Line Cinema's horror thriller IT, directed by Andrés Muschietti ("Mama"), is based on the hugely popular Stephen King novel of the same name, which has been terrifying readers for decades.
The sequel will be releasing in theatres including Imax locations on September 6, 2019, according to the announcement.
We already know that Andres Muschietti is in talks to direct (and he should be confirmed soon), while Gary Dauberman is writing, and there have been hints that we'll see more flashbacks - allowing for the return of the excellent young cast - and more exploration of the weirder stuff in King's book.
The first film hit theaters this fall and reinvigorated the box office after an uncharacteristically sluggish summer. Let's hope Muschietti can work the same magic in the sequel.

Instead, North Korea pocketed billions of American tax dollars to expedite the same nuclear program they promised to dismantle. Amir Ali Hajizadeh, as saying that the new missile, named Khoramshahr, "can carry several warheads for various uses".
The picture's $123.4 million opening weekend registered the biggest September debut (a bar previously set by Hotel Transylvania 2's $48.5 million debut back in 2015), the largest opening for a horror release, and the second-best three-day frame for an R-rated movie. It's already become the highest-grossing movie in USA history, serving up some killer clown realness that it seems everyone can appreciate.
And if that wasn't enough, It had the biggest opening for an R-rated film and even beat out The Exorcist, and the film has almost half a billion in sales worldwide!
It stars Bill Skarsgard as Pennywise and child actors Finn Wolfhard, Sophia Lillis, Jaeden Lieberher, Jack Dylan Grazer, Chosen Jacobs, Wyatt Oleff and Jeremy Ray Taylor.
