Wait, Did IT Chapter Two Have An Alternate Ending For Richie?

Published

on

Spoilers ahead for IT Chapter Two.

The horror genre has been through an exciting renaissance over the past few years, with plenty of new and exciting projects hitting theaters and raking up dough at the box office. But the genre has always been one that relied heavily franchises and sequels, and a fair amount of reboots have accompanied new original stories. Stephen King’s IT was recently given the movie treatment, with a pair of horror flicks by Andy Muschietti. The sequel delivered an emotional ending for Bill Hader’s Richie Tozier, but was there an alternate (and sadder) ending for the fan favorite character?

Richie was the scene stealer in IT Chapter Two, as Bill Hader had an endless supply of one liners for the members of the Losers’ Club. Andy Muschietti made a narrative choice by deepening the bond between Richie and James Ransone’s Eddie. It turns out that Richie’s feelings for his friend were romantic, and ultimately left unexplored in the wake of Eddie’s death. But Ransone recently shared a photo from the set of Chapter Two, which is going to start endless fan theories about an alternate ending. Check it out.

Um, what? Is there a version of IT Chapter Two that ends with Richie’s death? My head is spinning, and fans of both the franchise and Stephen King’s beloved novel are likely doing the same.

This image comes to us from James Ransone’s personal Instagram page. The image shows what appears to be a prop table on the set of IT Chapter Two. Included is a photo of Bill Hader’s character, which says “In Loving Memory of Richard Tozier”. As such, fans are wondering if an alternate ending for the movie saw Richie dying at the hands of Pennywise, rather than Eddie. But would the ending have been as powerful?

Eddie sacrifices himself during the final battle with Pennywise, but being killed by the demon after saving Richie. Bill Hader’s character was shown weeping and mourning for his fellow Loser, with the movie later revealing that his feelings were actually romantic in nature. Eddie’s death gives Richie the final motivation to destroy Pennywise, with the remaining Losers’ bullying the monster until he was small enough to kill.

The strength Richie has to stand up to Bill Skarsgard’s villain comes with the realization and memories of his time with Eddie. The movie ends with the comedian seemingly coming to terms with his sexuality, re-carving his and Eddie’s initials before leaving Derry. But could the above photo indicate an alternate, sadder ending for the character?

It’s unclear, as James Ransone didn’t offer any type of context with the photo. It’s more than possible that it was an inside joke on the set, and was not actually a prop for the horror sequel. But with Andy Muschietti willing to make some changes to Stephen King’s original story, it seems just about anything is possible.

Killing Richie off would have presumably given Eddie the chance to survive, and possibly come to the same realization that Bill Hader’s character did during IT Chapter Two‘s conclusion. The hypochondriac Loser was shown having the same problems he did as a kid during adulthood. While no longer under the thumb of his abusive mother, Eddie’s relationship with his wife had a similar power dynamic. Unfortunately, he ultimately died before being able to make a real change.

We’ll just have to wait and see if Andy Muschietti ends up commenting on this photo, and whether or not IT Chapter Two had an alternate ending for Richie. Perhaps the answers will arrive with the supercut of both movies, which the director has shown an interest in.

Published

Birthday of Bollywood’s Dream Girl – actress Hema Malini. Hema, who struck many with her beauty and acting, remains popular today. So fans are eager to know everything about them. Fans know the whole journey from Hema Malini and Dharmendra’s love story to marriage. But then there were many actors in Bollywood who wanted to marry Hema Malin. Among them are two actors who were among the leading actors at the time. Popular Bollywood actors Jitendra and Sanjeev Kumar had a strong desire to marry Hema Malini. But Hema Malini married Dharmendra.

Since Sanjeev wanted to marry Hema Malini, he decided to seek help from Jitendra. Sanjay asked Jitendra to convey the matter in his heart to Hema. But then Hema refused to marry Sanjeev. It is said that Hema refused to marry Sanjeev, but he started to like Jitendra. Jitendra and Hema confess their love to each other during the filming of the ‘bride’ movie. The couple’s family had also given permission for the marriage. Jitendra wanted to marry Hema but then he was dating Shobha.

Shobha and Jitendra were childhood friends. When Shobha learned this, he asked Hema to explain to Jitendra. But meanwhile Hema and Jitendra’s family met each other. While the two families were meeting on one side, Hema got a call from Dharmendra and expressed his love for Hema Malini. Before making any decision, Dharmendra asked Hema to meet him once.

It is said that since Dharmendra’s first wife was not willing to divorce him, Dharmendra accepted Islam to marry Hema Malini. Hema’s father V. S. Ramanujam Chakraborty was opposed to this marriage. Dharmendra and Prakash already had four children. Therefore, Ramanujam was strongly opposed to this marriage.

Dharmendra and Hema got married only after the death of their father. Hema’s mother was also opposed to the marriage, but they still married. According to Hema, Dharmendra was the main reason for his attraction. Dharmendra is just as calm and tough as his mother. Hema and Dharmendra are married with two daughters, Isha and Ahana, and both are married.
