If you plan on skipping out on It: Chapter Two in hopes of an extremely lengthy version of both films, you may be in luck. Director Andy Muschietti says he's planning to make a supercut of It and It: Chapter Two that could potentially be seven hours long.
Considering the book's length and deep lore, Muschietti certainly had a challenge in adapting the novel. Not everything could have been included in It: Chapter Two's theatrical release, a film that already runs just under three hours. In an interview with Syfy Wire, Muschietti was asked about the cut content that originally made It: Chapter Two run for four hours, and if fans will have a chance to see the cut material.
"I'm intending to make a supercut, which is a version of this story that includes the two movies with all of the material that was not included in the theatrical or digital release. And possibly a couple of scenes I haven't shot yet." When asked if he plans on going back to shoot more scenes, Muschietti said, "Yes, I'm not done."
Muschietti went on to say,"I want to be a little cryptic about it," when talking about including some parts from the book.
While the opening of It: Chapter Two fell short at the box office compared to the first film, the movie sits right under It for the second-highest horror movie opening weekend of all time.
It: Chapter Two stars Bill Skarsgård, James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain, Jay Ryan, Bill Hader, Isaiah Mustafa, James Ransone, Andy Bean, Teach Grant, Jess Weixler, Will Beinbrink, Xavier Dolan, Jaeden Lieberher, Sophia Lillis, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Finn Wolfhard, Chosen Jacobs, Jack Dylan Grazer, Wyatt Oleff and Nicholas Hamilton.
