September 26th, 2017 by Marc Comments

Well we knew that the sequel to IT was a cert given that the first movie is not only pretty brilliant but is also breaking all sorts of records including top-grossing horror film of all time.

But now we have a release date for the return of Pennywise and The Losers Club: September 6th, 2019.


Yes, Gary Dauberman, one of the screenwriters on It, is back penning the sequel with director Andy Muschietti also expected to return.

Fans of the book – and the original TV series from 1990 – will know that the sequel will be set in the present day, 27 years after the events of the first movie and will see The Losers Club return as adults to Derry, Maine to go after the monster, IT, that terrified them as children.

In case you’re wondering where we’re heading, it’s to get in line for this right now!

Let us know who you’d like to see as the adult versions of the cast…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
