Well, now there is good news (or bad for those that have a fear of clowns) as New Line Cinema and Warner Bros, have announced that a sequel to the blockbuster will be released on 6 September 2019.

Gary Dauberman, one of the writers for the latest release, has quietly signed on the dotted line to pen the sequel - according to the Hollywood Reporter.

And it is expected that director Andres Muschietti, plus producers Barbara Muschietti, Roy Lee, Dan Lin, Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg, will all return too.

It is based around Pennywise the clown - a predatory, shape-shifting immortal being who terrorises children.

Uncharted Movie Has Recieved Yet Another New Release Date

Speaking about the film, Muschietti told USA Today: "It's established that Pennywise takes the shape of your worst fear.

"He doesn't have a steady behaviour, he doesn't expose how he thinks, and that's what makes him really unpredictable.

"And because no-one knows what he'll do next or how, the space between appearances - with the occasional red balloon creepily floating by - becomes a feeling of dread that grows in people's minds.''

'Chapter Two' as the second film is currently being described will take place 27 years after the first movie. However, flashbacks will play a big part in the story, meaning some of the cast will likely return.

It director Muschietti previously informed Variety the plan was to start filming a follow-up in spring 2018. He told them: "We'll probably have a script for the second part in January. Ideally, we would start prep in March. Part one is only about the kids. Part two is about these characters 30 years later as adults, with flashbacks to 1989 when they were kids."

The September film, an adaptation of the 1990 miniseries, raked in $226.1 million (£167.68m) across America and $478.1m (£354.57m) worldwide - a record for September revenue in North America.

Just the two years to go then.
