IT: Chapter Two Will Be 2 Hours 45 Minutes Long, Confirms Director

‘IT’ fans, you’re in for a treat as Chapter Two will be double the scare factor from the looks of the trailer. Director Andy Muschietti confirmed recently that the film will be a huge 2 hours and 45 minutes in length as well, so get ready to endure nearly 3 hours of horror.

Check out the trailer for Chapter Two, it’s definitely enough to give you nightmares:

Muschietti revealed his creative thought and process which led to the final version of the movie:

“A movie is very different when you’re writing the script and you’re building a story compared to what the final product is.

At the beginning, when you’re writing and building the beats of the story, everything that you put in there seems very essential to the story.

However, when you have the movie finally edited and it’s four hours long, you realise that some of the events and some of the beats can be easily lifted but the essence of the story remains intact.”

Muschietti added:

“You cannot deliver a four hour movie because people will start to feel uncomfortable – no matter what they see – but we ended up having a movie that is 2 hours and 45 minutes, and the pacing is very good.”

There are plenty of films with huge running times and even they can’t fit every brilliant scene, some have to be cut but the length of a film always has to be taken into consideration.

Good news, IT:Chapter 2 will allow you the chance to watch a directors cut if you haven’t got quite the right amount of scares.

Producer Barbara Muschietti explained:

“We will put out a director’s cut because this time it definitely merits it.”

“We have some amazing scenes that didn’t make it into the movie. You have to make choices sometimes and some things cannot be in this theatrical release but are definitely worthy of people seeing them at a later date.”

IT:Chapter 2 revisits The Losers Club 27 years after they first encountered Pennywise and it’s safe to say.. he hasn’t changed one bit.
