‘It’ Sequel to be Released Sept. 6, 2019.

Looks like "It," based on Stephen King's ultra-popular novel, has officially secured a release date for its sequel.

"The sequel to New Line’s It will be hitting the screen on Sept. 6, 2019. That’s the same post-Labor Day frame that the first chapter launched in, racking up an unprecedented $123.4M domestic opening — the best September has ever seen. Andy Muschietti directs the second half of Stephen King’s novel which focuses on the Loser’s Club, 27 years later, when they’ve grown up and away. But then a devastating phone call brings them back."
This news seemed inevitable, what's surprising about all this is the fact that there is cno screenplay written for the sequel nor is a cast really confirmed. 

The film, a propulsive blockbuster hit, has recently surpassed The Exorcist as the highest-grossing horror movie of all-time (although if inflation is included the Exorcist would still be at the top.) IT's success is not a huge surprise considering the buzz that surrounded the film. The horror reboot's trailer nabbed almost 200 million views on YouTube (197 million to be precise) in its first 24 hours. That is insane. What's even more astounding is that it beat the previous record holder, "The Fate of the Furious," by almost 60 million views.
