Stephen King’s ‘IT‘ is a massive hit critically and financially, breaking all types of horror movie box office records. The film has brought in a lot of new fans to the property, and it seems like Warner Bros. has figured that out as they already have a director’s cut in mind for the home video release.
While talking with Yahoo! Movies, Director Andres Muschietti revealed whether not there were scenes he regretted leaving out and he then confirmed there will be a director’s cut.
- “There’s a great scene, it’s a bit of a payoff of the Stanley Uris plot which is the bar mitzvah, where he delivers a speech against all expectations… it’s basically blaming all the adults of Derry [for the town’s history of deadly “accidents” and child disappearances], and it has a great resolution. … Maybe it will be in the director’s cut!”
His sister and producer of the film, Barbara Muschietti, also confirmed the new cut “Right, we are going to do a director’s cut. We were told this morning”. Andres specified that we will be getting “an extra 15 minutes for hardcore fans.” Seeing more of the kids and the payoff of the Stanley Uris plot sounds fantastic. Director cuts are usually superior than the theatrical release, and the one we have now in theaters is already pretty great so I really can’t wait to see the extended version.
Stephen King’s IT is in theaters now.
IT – Based on Stephen King’s best-selling novel. A group of young kids face their biggest fears when they seek answers to the disappearance of children in their hometown of Derry, Maine. They square off against an evil clown named Pennywise, whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries.
