Recently we spoke to writer-producer Barbara Muschietti. During our conversation we discussed the difficulties of producing for a sibling, being discovered by Guillermo Del Toro, and the intricacies of converting a three minute short into a 90 minute movie.
HeyUGuys: The first thing I should probably do is pass my congratulations. I was just reading that Universal were saying you guys had franchise potential and they’re considering sequels.
Barbara Muschietti: We’re very, very happy with the way the movie’s done so far in the States, and in Spain, and Mexico, and in other territories where the film is doing well.
