"It" can get scarier!
The hit horror movie based on Stephen King's novel has been cleaning up at the box office, and fans clamoring for more will likely make the Blu-ray release just as successful since it will feature a new director's cut.
Director Andy Muschietti and sister/producer Barbara Muschietti revealed on a Facebook Live with Yahoo Movies that they've been asked to create a longer cut with "probably [be] an extra 15 minutes for hardcore fans," Andy said.
Some of that will include an extended version of the quarry scene, when the Losers Club members dare each other to jump off a cliff into the water.
"After the spitting contest it escalates into something that is completely weird and irrelevant to the scene but is so funny," he said. "Jack Grazer, who plays Eddie, does something that is completely bonkers."
And there's another scene that Muschietti had to cut that he hopes to include.
"There's a great scene, it's a bit of a payoff of the Stanley Uris plot which is the bar mitzvah, where he delivers a speech against all expectations," he said. "It's basically blaming all the adults of Derry [for the town's history of deadly "accidents" and child disappearances], and it has a great resolution."
Seven young outcasts in Derry, Maine, are about to face their worst nightmare -- an ancient, shape-shifting evil that emerges from the sewer every 27 years to prey on the town's children. Banding together over the course of one horrifying summer, the friends must overcome their own personal fears to battle the murderous, bloodthirsty clown known as Pennywise. Read More
