It: Stephen King Says He Wasn’t Consulted For Pennywise Prequel Series

Modern rehabilitations of It (that) by Andy Muschietti were real successes in the cinema. The new saga cashed $1.1 billion in revenue combined on its two adaptations. The first movie got 86% positive reviews on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes versus 62% for the second. An extended universe seems in all topicality for the Warner since a prequel on the clown Pennywise is in the pipes for the platform HBO Max.

According to comments from Stephen King during from one of his appearances on the podcast The Losers Club by Bloody Disgustingthe writer of the character of Pennywise does not appear to have been approached for production of Welcome To Derrya series that is being developed for HBO Maxbut the latter does not seem resentful since he is impatiently awaiting the series:

“Well, I don’t have a relationship with Pennywise now, because I have no intention of going back to the It universe…it’s in the hands of the people who do this…Andy and Barbara [Muschietti] are going to do ‘Welcome to Derry’, they talk about it anyway. And they have kind of a handshake deal, I think, with HBO Max. It is an interesting possibility to do so. They talked about a prequel. Which I thought was a good idea. I’d love to see what Pennywise was up to 27 before the 50s. Or, I guess it would be the 80s, because they updated the [paramètre]. So that would be, you know, before WWII or something. It will be interesting to see what happens with that. »
