IT was always planned as a two-part movie, just as the TV miniseries arrived in two parts.
The first installment will focus on the kids.
While the second movie follows the same kids as adults.
Though, as IT began production, talk of the second movie faded away, and it has never been outright confirmed that it will happen.
Dan Lin says that is still the intention, and that the production team has not wavered from those plans.
He explains to Collider what is happening with the sequel, saying it's moving forward.
"Naturally that's the plan. If you look at the book, it's the part of the book that we have not yet explored. The book we really broke down into two parts. The first part is this movie and if audiences react to this movie in the way we hope they will and I think they will, then we'll be to tell the adult story as well."
So, even though the second movie is still planned, if the first one bombs at the box office, you can expect the second one to quietly shuffle off into the land of movies that never were.
What that means is IT won't likely end on a cliffhanger.
Not one that is as obvious as the TV miniseries anyway.
