"It: Chapter Two" director Andy Muschietti spoke to Business Insider about the upcoming horror film.
He revealed the movie was afforded double the budget of 2017's blockbuster horror movie, "It."
"We didn't start with a budget, we started with a script," Muschietti said.
Muschietti said that author Stephen King was closer to this movie than to its predecessor.
King suggested some scenes from his book be included after reading the script.
"We started talking after he saw the first one and having this dialogue. The relationship became tighter."
