Does The IT Sequel Have This Awkward Title?

It’s no easy task turning a novel to the big screen, and oftentimes, Stephen King’s work is especially difficult to adapt. This is especially the case with some of his longer tomes. Among them is none other than IT, the timeless story that revolves around a shape-shifting entity that is most remembered for his form of Pennywise the Dancing Clown.

Last year, that story was adapted to the big screen — but only half of it. Rather than try to turn a 1,100-page bible into a single two-hour narrative, director Andy Muschietti thought better of it. Instead, he only covered the story of that spanned the main characters in their youth, where they had their first encounter with Pennywise. At the tail-end of the film, we got a title card that read, “IT: Chapter 1,” hinting that the title would likely be IT: Chapter 2…but will it be?

There are now reports circulating that the sequel will be called IT: Part 2, and that it’s working title is “Largo.” This seems especially odd, since, as mentioned above, they’ve already set a precedent by calling the first film “Chapter 1.” So what’s the deal? Personally, I have a hard time believing they’d make such a blatant and annoying contradiction in their naming conventions — this isn’t the Fast and the Furious franchise, after all.

As it stands, I wouldn’t be surprised that this production report is just utilizing a temporary name. But we’ll see soon enough!
