Pennywise the Dancing Clown is getting ready to terrorize audiences all over again.
New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. on Monday announced that a sequel to the horror blockbuster Itwill hit theaters, including Imax locations, on Sept. 6, 2019.
Since its debut earlier this month, the film adaptation of Stephen King's book has shattered numerous records, including becoming the top-grossing horror film of all time, not adjusting for inflation. The Exorcist, released in 1973, made $233 million in North America and $441.3 million worldwide, but the domestic portion swells to $917.5 million when adjusting for inflation.
It has earned $266.1 million domestically and $478.1 million globally to date. The R-rated pic has roused the box office back to life after a brutal August and tough summer, as well as fueling record September revenue in North America.
Gary Dauberman, one of the screenwriters on It, has quietly closed a deal to pen the screenplay for the follow-up, while director Andy Muschietti is waiting in the wings to return as well. Producers Barbara Muschietti, Roy Lee, Dan Lin, Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg are also expected to return for the sequel.
King's opus It tells of a group of friends who band together to defeat their small town's demon, first as kids and then as adults. While his book toggles between the young and older characters, New Line structured its adaptation so that the first film focuses on the kids and is set in the past. While the sequel will take place in the present, it will be punctuated with flashbacks, allowing the same cadre of kids to be seen again.

Grammy winning singer G Tom Mac was the man behind The Lost Boys‘ theme song, titled “Cry Little Sister,” reported over the weekend that he’s currently in development on a musical based on 1987’s classic vampire film.
It’s titled A Lost Boys Story, and Mac will be unleashing the musical’s soundtrack this coming October… before the musical itself comes to fruition.
“That’s something I’ve been working on for some years in development,” he told the site. “I wanted to give a back story to the characters and tell where they came from, and how they became Vampires, & their rebellious nature and youthful uniqueness, yet keeping in line with the humor that worked so well with the horror in the film.”
Mac continued, “I’ve written all new songs that bring out a good deal of depth in the play’s story, songs like ‘Sleep All Day Party All Night,’ ‘Be One of Us,’ ‘Long Hot Summer’ (Michael & Stars theme), and the ever-fun ‘Death by Stereo’. The soundtrack will give the fans a good way to get the music in them in anticipation of the upcoming play.”

“It,” the blockbuster adaptation of Stephen King’s novel about a child-eating clown, has pushed past “The Exorcist” to become the highest-grossing horror film on a domestic basis.
The crown comes with some caveats. “The Exorcist” is still the top-grossing horror film on an international basis, having netted $441.3 million globally to “It’s” $404.3 million. The horror classic also made its money in 1973, so this record doesn’t take inflation into account.
It’s still a stunning result for the King adaptation, and a reason to celebrate at Warner Bros. and New Line, the studios responsible for bringing Pennywise to the big screen. “It” has earned $236.3 million stateside. In contrast, “The Exorcist” has grossed $232.9 million domestically. In addition to terrorizing ’70s theatergoers, “The Exorcist” got two director’s cut re-releases.
“It” is directed by Andres Muschietti (“Mama”) and stars Bill Skarsgard as Pennywise, along with a kid-heavy cast the includes Jaeden Lieberher, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Sophia Lillis, and Finn Wolfhard. The movie follows a band of outcast teenagers as they battle a sinister force that’s terrorizing their town.
The film cost an economical $35 million to produce and pushed past “The Exorcist” after just two weeks of release. Given its monster grosses, it’s no surprise that the studio is moving forward on a follow-up to “It.”

The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah.
“When these ancient super-species—thought to be mere myths—rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.”

What ever happened to the proposed Flash Gordon remake? Here is what Matthew Vaughn had to say
"Yeah, we've been working on it. For me, the only problem with Flash Gordon is Guardians [of the Galaxy] kind of stole what I would have liked to have done with it. You've got Star Wars, you've got Guardians, so you've got to have your own space opera, but you have to find something that can survive among these two very, very great franchises"
Will it ever happen, we will keep you updated.
Fast & Furious Live is an upcoming live-action stunt show that performs some of the most memorable scenes from the entire Fast and Furious franchise. Professionally trained stunt drivers get behind the wheels of some of the most recognizable cars from the entire series and act out an original story for a live audience. The show will utilize state of the art immersive 3D projection mapping to aid its stuntwork, helping to pull off some of the more physics-defying action sequences from the movies.
The show will feature all-new characters created just for Fast & Furious Live. The story follows street racer Sophia Diaz and DSS Agent Dawson, who join forces to hunt down Cain, one of the last remaining members of Cipher's (Charlize Theron's cyber-villain from Fate of the Furious) crew. Vin Diesel's Dom Toretto will also be involved to some degree. This manhunt will coincidentally take them to several iconic locations from the movies, such as Los Angeles, Tokyo, and even Russia for some old fashion ice driving.
Those who attend the show will see plenty of cars that they'll recognize from the franchise. Viewers can expect to see vehicles from the entirety of the series, such as the Flip Car from Fast & Furious 6, Dom's signature Dodge Charger, and yes, they even have a tank. These, plus many more cars, will be performing some favorite stunts from the series. People probably shouldn't expect to see cars parachuting down into the arena, but Fast & Furious Live is promising certain scenes like the safe-dragging chase in Fast Five and the race against the submarine in Fate of the Furious.
