Whatever the case, The lightning—Directed by Andy Muschietti — is the perfect place for such a restart.

It will also be fun. I can not promise that there will be horror [elements in it], really, but it’s a beautiful human story. “
“I think Keaton had the honor of coming back to do this character again. But mostly we sent him a great script, and that’s probably what he was interested in,” the director added during a panel at the DC FanDome. “It’s more complicated than that … we gave him a great script and I promised him a great director. And that was about it.”
