IT Writer Thinks Spinoffs Are a Possibility

The writer of the IT films says that while the main story is done, he does see possibility for spinoffs. Gary Dauberman spoke with CBM for a new interview promoting Annabelle Comes Home’s home video release and asked him if he believes films that branch out from the main story are possible.

“I do think it’s possible,” Dauberman said. “Anything in the Stephen King Universe interests me but there’s only so much of the story we could tell in the two movie. There are definitely elements of the novel you could expand on and make its own movie. It’s just a question of whether or not people want to see it but I do think It was on this planet for a very, very, very long time and that’s a lot of bloodshed and a lot of stories to tell and I think you could do that for sure.”

Dauberman also weighed in on Andy Muschietti’s teased supercut that would combine the two films into one six-hour film. “I know Andy has an idea about a ‘supercut’ which I would love to see but we cut things for a reason so if there was something I desperately wanted to see or wanted put in there, we could have found a way to put it in,” he said. “That’s not to say that the stuff that’s not in there isn’t great but we put the stuff that’s in the movie there because that’s what makes it better. I can’t think of anything offhand where I’d say I wish we hadn’t cut that and I can’t wait for people to see but I think there’s plenty of things there that fans would love to check out if there was to be a ‘supercut.'”

IT was quite the hit franchise for Warner Bros., with the two films totaling $1.166 billion worldwide on a $114 million budget plus marketing.
