It director Andy Muschietti says that there’s still ample ground to explore within the franchise’s mythology, but don’t expect another film too soon. Muschietti spoke with io9 for a new interview promoting It: Chapter Two and was asked about the potential of another film and said that there’s still narrative room to cover.

“There is a whole mythology to the book,” Muschietti said. “Mythology is something that always has opportunities to explore. It [Pennywise] has been on Earth for millions of years. He’s been in contact with humans for hundreds of years, every 27 years. So you can imagine the amount of material. It’s always exciting to think of eventually exploring this mythology. It’s very exciting.”

That said, Muschietti made clear that such a film isn’t in the works, saying, “…For now, there’s nothing on the table.”

It: Chapter Two opens wide on September 6th.
