Needs A Sequel


The character of Pennywise made the statement: "You're all too old" when the Lucky Seven went down the sewer after him as children. As adults they killed the creature, but sometime later a new evil appears to cause more death and destruction. Their banding together to end this new evil would be why the movie/mini-series is a sequel to the 1990 mini-series.
We have, in the past several years, had elderly people cast as heroic figures and audiences have enjoyed the films. In the 1990 two part mini-series the children go after the beast without their parents and as adults in the second part, they do so without their spouses or girl/boy friends. This time the sequel could have them coming also. It would be heartwarming to see Stan's widow helping to end the terror this new entity is causing and have a loved one from Eddie's life to help. His mother could be portrayed as blaming the others for his death and not wanting to go as she doesn't/ won't believe in the existence of the fiend. Having the same spirit of love, friendship, sacrifice as in the mini-series, this sequel could be great.

I had a thought once that it would be interesting to do a sequel with only four of the members still alive but very old. Bill having memory problems because he's losing his cognitive functions. An offspring of Pennywise would have started as a spark of lightning creeping out of a blackhole in space. Perhaps from a timeline where they didn't destroy all the eggs. It would end up reaching Earth, not being as powerful as the original Pennywise but still a menace. Perhaps the new parallel to the clown would be the coldness of old folks homes.
No way they would ever do a sequel to the original TV series though, that second half was pretty bad. But to be honest the second half of the story was even pretty weak in the novel.

I disagree that the second half was bad. It also had the values of self-sacrifice, friendship and love. Your story idea was good. With any sequel to the 1990 mini-series, all the surviving cast members of the "lucky seven" should be cast.

The second part is pretty cheesy and nothing really creative happens in it in my opinion. Pennywise is still great "Kiss me fat boy!" is hilarious and his "You're too old to stop me!" screaming is awesome.

Well there really is only Bev, Bill, Mike, Richie and Ben left. I would assume one of them would have died by that age. I know the actor who played Richie has died, not sure of the rest.

You brought this up? I prefer the Muschietti IT movies by far, they shit all over this lame made-for-TV adaptation.

Disagree

This original is still better.

The issues with this original is due to the time it came out being it was for tv it had a small budget also at this time period so many restriction on what you could show.

This version and the new ones are not perfect both have good plus bad it would be nice ot have a merge of each in some ways.

Tim Curry was great in this and it was his performance which is why so many remember the character.

I don't think a sequel would work a prequel could.

I didn't like the remake as such being movies a TV series would of been better suited it could of been many different stories even to tie in with other horror.

The remake is already forgotten to most people.

The miniseries has long been forgotten by me.
