Stephen King’s IT is now the highest grossing horror movie of all time and is now available on Digital and it looks like fans will be able to get more of the story coming soon.
It was announced that the movie IT will receive an extended Director’s Cut of the movie directed by Andy Muschietti in 2018. The digital version and the upcoming Blu-ray release of the film in January will include several deleted scenes and extended scenes. There is no word on what will be included in the director’s cut of the film, but there are rumors of an alternate opening to the film.
When asked to confirm the Director’s Cut, Muschietti stated; “Yes, but in a few months.” Pennywise actor Bill Skarsgard stated that there is a scene that either might be included in the Director’s Cut or might find its way into the upcoming sequel. “I’m not gonna spoil what the scene is, because we might use it [in the sequel]. But it’s a very disturbing scene, sort of a backstory for what It is or where Pennywise came from. … The idea is that It, the entity, was dormant or resting for thousands and thousands of years and it [the scene] hints on [the founding of Derry].” he said.
IT is currently available on Digital and will arrive on Blu-Ray/DVD January 9, 2018 with the Director’s Cut of the film to follow a few months later.
