Barbara Muschietti Facts

  1. She started working in the advertising industry after shifting to Catalonia in Spain.
  2. Barbara has confessed that when she got the opportunity to do It, the first thing she had wanted to do was run to King’s hometown Bangor in Maine, with her brother having wanted to bang on their literary hero’s door. Although they had refrained from doing so, they had ended up going to the place.
  3. Following the massive opening weekend for It that brought in $123 million domestically, she had revealed that she had a premonition around 5 months earlier that the film would do $80 million in its opening weekend. Barbara however had no idea why, people kept telling her that she had lost it. Everyone had been quite shocked when Barbara actually turned out to be wrong, as it ended up becoming much higher.
  4. Barbara has pointed out how she and her brother have been a producing/directing pair for many years, having done commercials, shorts, and then movies. As they were brought up by the same parents who had the same tastes and were exposed to the same films and books, when it has come to that, they have found themselves fighting all the time as most siblings do. They have fought about Andy leaving the banana peel on her desk, or his shoes somewhere in her living room, but they have never fought about writing together, or directing or producing together, as they know each other inside out. Barbara and Andy have both always wanted exactly the same thing, that is to have the truly best film possible.
