WB made a wise move when they decided to cut Stephen King’s IT into two films, but it looks like they’re not done with Pennywise and the Losers Club just yet. Director Andy Muschietti is actually teasing that there are plans to make a "supercut" with both films edited together to make a four-hour film.
Talking to Fandango, Muschietti explains, “We’re still talking about it. It’s in the early stages, but it’s going to be the two movies cut back to back with all of the scenes that were not included.” Muschietti has also said that he wants to shoot an additional two scenes for the cuts, plus he teases that there’s a scene that didn’t make it to the theatrical cut where Bill Hader dances like Patrick Swayze.
We don’t really know what scenes Muschietti plans to add to the movie, but I have a feeling they have more to do with Pennywise than the Losers Club. The first movie had infamously cut a deleted scene where Pennywise in the 1600s haggles with a mother to feed it her baby; the scene was expected to be added to Chapter Two, but it was still missing in the theatrical release.
Of course, this is just my guess, but I feel this is the only thing that’s missing that a lot of people might want to have seen.
Hopefully, with this extended cut, Muschietti is allowed to go all out. I really like his approach with these films, and not only are they very stylistic visually, but they’re also very full of heart at the end of it all. We just hope he does the same thing with the upcoming Flash film.
No release date has been set for the IT supercut, but IT: Chapter Two is now in theaters.
