    I'd love to see an origins story about Pennywise, even if it was a short story or novella.

    No sequels, no prequels, not retellings, no nothing!

    IT doesn't lend itself to a sequel very well as some of his other novels do.

    I'm thinking more a movie sequel. Since the Turtle is Pennywise's natural enemy, Flo & Eddie could be the heroes of the saga. Has there been a SK comedy made yet? Give it the Bill and Ted treatment. Pick characters (and the actors who played them) from other SK works to help in an epic adventure to defeat It. And make it a musical while we're at it. :)

    Maybe a sequel to IT, but a prequel to Insomnia. Both stories take place in Derry....so awesome connection number #1. We can assume that both It and the Crimson King come from the Dark Tower universe. So what about a story that tells us what happened in Derry after the events of IT, but before Insomnia. Why that town? What was the slow build up of malevolent forces? Are IT and the Crimson king related....like evil relatives????

    Pennywise by himself, but that would be all.

    Bahaha!!!! Epic win xD

    Maybe Pennywise's long lost child is named Nickelwise, and HIS child is Dimewise, Quarterwise, 50-cent-piece-wise, Dollarwise, etc. They'll be making sequels til the year 3500.

    It would certainly be fun if SK ever wrote a novel in which all the best (or worst, depending on your perspective) villains banded together!

    This is such a terrible, horrible, wretched, repulsive idea that I've no choice but to click Like on it.

    You are a diabolical fiend for putting those images in my mind.

    ...I feel safe in saying you're not a natural born speaker or user of the English language-which allows a lot of leeway in translation, so the strange query is kinda comical, but rest assured-King is still plugging along quite well....

    How about an alternate take in which Pennywise crosses paths with Randall Flagg , The version from The Stand. What a very unhealthy meeting that would be , they would definitely hate each other. :)

    That's pretty funny, Flo & Eddie! Actually, you bring up a very good point -- there probably will be a King parody soon. One would assume the team behind the Scary Movie parodies will tackle all of the King projects in recent years -- as well as Stranger Things. I'd almost believe there is a script being pitched in Hollywood on that count, maybe by the Movie team itself. (That's the Wayans brothers, correct?) Either way, I think DiO'Bolic is ahead of the curve on this; good call.
