It's all over, but the hovering.
Director Andy Muschietti came to Instagram on Thursday, November 1, to report that It's chapter twoConcluding the record breaking first chapter of 2017, the filming has officially been completed. He thanked his cast and crew in English and Spanish in an emotional contribution.
"It: Chapter 2 was an 86-day roller coaster ride. I've never enjoyed movies like this, "wrote Muschietti. I had a relentless and inspired crew who, like me, believed in this adventure, and a cast that left heart and soul behind every second of the performance. A big thank you to everyone and also to my producer and my sister @barbaramus, who dealt with all the idiots who reserved such a production for the producers. And last but not least, the fans who, day after day, increased our spirits by reminding us how much this story means to them. Thank you and love you all. "
Bill Hader, who plays Richie Tozier as an adult in the movie, also had some electoral comments It's chapter twohe gave Indie Wire after he had accepted a performance award at the last honoring of the branch.
"It's really great, it's very emotional," the actor said. "The cast is amazing … It's obviously very scary, but I was surprised how emotional it was, it's really a story about these people and that kind of trauma they all went through."
The big screen adaptation of Stephen King's masterpiece was known to have a blind path to the screen. Muschietti was seen at the last minute as a replacement for the original director Cary Fukunaga, who left the first film after years of development, due to these annoying "creative differences." Fukunaga's resignation was generally seen as a sign of an impending demise for the project, but Muschietti defied all expectations by bringing not just one of the best King adaptations ever made, but one of the best horror flicks of the last decade. It's chapter one aroused critical criticism, frightening viewers and becoming the most terrifying horror movie of all time.
Just in case you are not familiar with King, his 1986 novel It is the story of Losers & # 39; Club, a group of seven childhood friends who see themselves as their last line of defense against an immortal, form-changing monster that usually appears under the guise of Pennywise, the Dancing Clown. After defeating It as a child in the 1950s and almost killing It, they are forced to return as adults to fight again when they appear after a 27-year sleep.
While the novel moves between the two periods, Muschietti has made the wise decision to focus on the childish part of the story in the first film (taking the time to the 80s) and to jump to this day. In addition to Hader the cast of Chapter Two These include Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy, Isaiah Mustafah, Jay Ryan, James Ransone and Andy Bean.
The first film significantly increased Muschietti's profile. Formerly known by the well-preserved 2013 supernatural horror movie motherMuschietti is suddenly flooded with work IT: Chapter OneSuccess. In addition to Chapter TwoHe is currently working on the live action adaptation of popular manga series attack on Titanas well as a new "re-staging" of the classic H. G. Wells journey through time The time machine,
It is easy to see why the director has been entrusted with further big-screen adaptations of iconic features. The smart money is on It's chapter two Even more money than the first chapter, and given that the property was considered marginal enough to be unfilmable (the miniseries of 1990 have taken more corners than can be counted), the first film was more loyal, profitable, and shallower than it had a right.
Those who have never read the novel can now wait with bated breath to see what fate the losing club expects. And for those who have tried and want to flood the Internet with spoilers, all we can say is, "Beep Beep, Richie!"
