Washington D.C [USA], September 26 (ANI): After breaking numerous records on box-office, the makers of massively popular Stephen King adaptation 'It' have announced its sequel date.

New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. announced that a sequel to the horror blockbuster will hit theaters on September 6, 2019, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

Gary Dauberman, who co-wrote the first film, is close to closing a deal to pen the sequel, and director Andy Muschietti is also expected to return.

Producers Barbara Muschietti, Roy Lee, Dan Lin, Seth Grahame-Smith, and David Katzenberg are believed to be back as well.

The second half of Stephen King's novel focuses on the Loser's Club, 27 years later, when they've grown up and are away. But then a devastating phone call brings them back.

The 'It' sequel is currently slated to open against an untitled Blumhouse Productions project.

'It' became the highest-grossing horror film of all time and has grossed over $478 million worldwide. (ANI)
