Warner Bros. supernatural horror film It is finally in cinemas and it seems like fans and critics are loving Andy Muschietti's live-action film adaptation of Stephen King's 1986 novel of the same name.

Surprisingly this includes Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. Though the Hollywood star's seen the film a few months back, The Rock has been posting his review on Instagram, calling the film one of his all time favorites and heaping praise on the performance of The Losers Club as well as Bill Skarsgard (Pennywise).

But that's not all. Taking time to congratulate Andy Mushietti in his post, Johnson also teases a project with the Argentine film director, indicating that the two have already spoken and that the wrestler-turned-actor is excited to work with the filmmaker "down the road."

"I saw this movie two months ago and it instantly became one of my all time favorites. Easily TOP 10 all time. Not only does it redefine the horror genre, but it's so layered, smart and brilliantly scary. Congrats to the awesome young cast aka The Losers Club for killing their performances. To Bill Skarsgard for delivering an iconic performance as Pennywise. And to the entire crew and my good buds at Warner Bros/New Line. And most of all congrats to director, Andy Muschietti for making such a defining film. You knocked it outta the f*cking park! Great talking with you man and we're gonna have some fun working together down the road. As a huge fan of the horror genre, this one's special. Have you fully recovered @simonegjohnson? ? #IT Congrats David Katzenberg you handsome MF!"


Johnson doesn't specify what project the two are working on exactly, but ever since he made the post, fans have been speculating that Muschetti might be working on a DC Extended Universe installment. Not only is IT a Warner Bros. film, but Muschetti has come close to working on a DC movie before, reportedly being in the running to helm the upcoming Justice League Dark.

Could Warner Bros. be thinking of having Muschetti direct Black Adam?


Let's wait and see.

It is currently screening in cinemas.
