HBO Max's IT Prequel Series Wants The Director Of The Flash To Helm It

Andy Muschietti, the director of The Flash, is reportedly interested in returning to the It franchise to direct the upcoming prequel series Welcome to Derry.

Welcome to Derry will be released in March 2022 as a prequel to the two-part adaptation of Stephen King's 1986 horror novel, which was released in theaters in 2017 and 2019. The series will take place in the 1960s in Derry, Maine, two decades before the events of It Chapter One.


Welcome to Derry is also expected to tell the origin story of Pennywise, an evil supernatural force that preys and feeds on children every twenty-seven years, though this has not been confirmed.

The acclaimed director is being considered for the pilot of the It prequel series, Welcome to Derry, according to Variety. Muschietti, who directed It Chapter One in 2017 and It Chapter Two in 2019, is currently an executive producer on Welcome to Derry alongside his sister Barbara Muschietti and Jason Fuchs.


Jason was recently named co-showrunner on the prequel series with Brad Caleb Kane. Fuchs also wrote the teleplay for Welcome to Derry's first episode, which was based on a story he co-wrote with the Muschiettis.

It was previously reported that Fuchs wrote the teleplay for the first episode of the series, which was based on a story he co-wrote with the Muschiettis, who brought Fuchs on board. Barbara produced both of the new films, which Andy directed. Fuchs worked on "It: Chapter Two" as a co-producer. Along with the Muschiettis, Fuchs and Kane will executive produce, with Andy possibly directing the series premiere. Under their Double Dream production banner, the Muschiettis executive produces. Warner Bros. Television is the studio, and WB produced both films.
