The film adaptation of Stephen King's novel IT has become the highest-grossing horror film of all time at the US box-office by raking in $477.8M. And the best way to celebrate the success? Announce a sequel! The makers of the film, Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema announced on Monday that the sequel of the film shall hit the theatres in 2019.

Garry Dauberman, one of the screenwriters of IT is expected to finish the script by January 2018 and the director, Andy Muscheiti is expecting to begin with the pre-production by March. "I cannot talk about ", the Argentine 44-year-old told THR at the September 5 premiere. "Some things said on the web are not totally wrong. That's all I can say," he added.

The 14-year-old Jeremy Ray Taylor who plays the role of Benjamin 'Ben' Hanscom said that he would like to see Chris Pratt as the older and wiser version of him in the sequel while Chosen Jacobs who plays the role of 'Mike' in the film wants Chadwick Boseman to play the mature version of him in the sequel.

"My idea of Mike in the second movie is quite darker from the book. I want to make his character the one pivotal character who brings them all together, but staying in Derry took a toll with him. I want him to be a junkie actually. A librarian junkie. When the second movie starts, he's a wreck...He will bear the role of trying to figure out how to defeat . The only way he can do that is to take drugs and alter his mind," Andy told EW on September 11.

Besides the kids returning for the flashback purposes, the director confirmed the presence of Bill Skarsgard in the sequel as well. It seems the makers are on the way to break their own record!
