‘It: Chapter Two’ Will Feature Novel’s Hate Crime, Domestic Violence
The trailer for ‘It: Chapter Two‘ just dropped and the new installment looks scarier than the first one.
We now also know that one of the most brutal and saddest moments in Stephen King 1986 novel will be included in the upcoming film.
Screenwriter Gary Dauberman confirmed Thursday in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter that the book’s hate crime against a gay boy would be in the movie. (It was not included in the 1990 TV miniseries.)
Dauberman explains why they chose to include the iconic scene, with a character named Adrian Mellon (Xavier Dolan), who is then murdered by Pennywise.
“It is the influence of Pennywise even while he is hibernating, and it’s pure evil what happens to Adrian. These bullies working through Pennywise were important for us to show.” -Says Dauberman.
Furthermore, much the same as in the book Dauberman affirms grown-up Beverly played by Sophie will be the victim of domestic violence, which is implied in the trailer with her arms wounded.
What’s more, concerning the frightfulness and fears, Dauberman says Chapter Two is “definitely bloodier than the first and it is just as scary, if not scarier.
‘It: Chapter Two’ is set to hit the theatres on September 06.
