[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”27550″ img_size=”800×450″ alignment=”center”][vc_column_text]Update: IT director Andy Muschietti sat down with ET Online and has once again said that he wants to make a “supercut” which would combine both films and that he wants to shoot more scenes to add to the film.
“The studio probably doesn’t know this…” he laughed. “No, we’re in talks with the studio to make a supercut, which is basically the two movies edited together with all the material that is not in the released versions. And yeah, there are a couple of scenes that I want to shoot to make this a new experience.”
When IT: Chapter One opened back in 2017, no one imagined the level of success it would have. IT has grossed over 700 million dollars to date and has gone on to become one of the best horror films adapted from a Stephen King novel ever, it currently sits at the number 10 spot on Rotten Tomatoes. IT: Chapter Two hits theaters on September 5 and already its box office estimates are through the roof, some sites even saying $138M is possible. Director Andy Muschietti has teased that he was working on a directors cut of IT: Chapter One but we have yet to hear any further news. But now it seems we could get not only a directors cut of IT: Chapter One but we could get a directors cut of IT: Chapter Two.
Andy sat down with SFX Magazine and revealed that a super cut of both films could be in the works
The possibilities are open. There’s a version where the two movies are cut together. There’s a version where there’s a special director’s cut of number one and a special director’s cut of number two. And I’m happy to basically work on every one of them.
If we get the super cut and it is the directors cut editions, we could be looking at a 7 to 8 hour long film. Andy’s directors cut for the first film is reported to be around 4 hours long. IT: Chapter Two clocks in at 2 hours and 45 minutes and that is the theatrical cut.
Do you want a super cut of both films? Would you sit through an 8 hour long film? Share your thoughts with us in the comments below.
