“IT” Movie Interview: The Muschiettis Talk about Making the Stephen King Classic 


I was so excited to finally see “It,” and to talk to director Andrés Muschietti and his sister, producer Barbara Muschietti. From the many themes (bullying, confronting your greatest fears), politics (social injustice and yes, the Donald, Trump that is), to why they wanted to make the definitive version of Stephen King’s IT, the siblings reveal them all! Oh, and I begged for a sequel! We have to see what happened to the characters when they are all grown up! Watch “It” when it opens nationwide on Sept. 8th.



Official synopsis: New Line Cinema's horror thriller "IT," directed by Andy Muschietti ("Mama"), is based on the hugely popular Stephen King novel of the same name, which has been terrifying readers for decades. When children begin to disappear in the town of Derry, Maine, a group of young kids are faced with their biggest fears when they square off against an evil clown named Pennywise, whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries.
