IT star says Andres Muschietti's film doesn't need an extended cut

A while back we let you guys know that STEPHEN KING'S IT was going to be getting a director's cut on Blu-ray with 15 mins. of added footage. I'm excited as hell about that (whenever it finally hits) and will be picking up a copy asap.

But one of the film's stars, Jaeden Lieberher (aka Stuttering Bill) recently told Cinema Blend that he doesn't think the film needs an extended edition, telling the site:

Jaeden Lieberher on if IT needs an Extended Cut:

No, not necessarily because I was saying this before, but everything is cut out of the movie for a reason. But I am excited to see, because there was one scene where I had to wear this harness. I actually climb up the big tower of toys, so that was an interesting scene to film and it was hard to see it not be in the movie but it all works out for a reason.

Fair enough, little dude. But all the same, being a huge fan of the book, there are quite a few scenes I would like to see included and/or extended. But I would have loved a 13-episode TV season based on just the kid's parts of the story. Too much wouldn't be enough for me.
