Bill Skarsgard is playing Pennywise the clown in the upcoming It remake, and the first image of the character has been released.
EW talked to Skarsgard about his thoughts on Pennywise, he said the following:
“It’s such an extreme character. Inhumane. It’s beyond even a sociopath, because he’s not even human. He’s not even a clown. I’m playing just one of the beings It creates.”
Skarsgard has big shoes to fill in this role, as he’s the next in line to play the character after Tim Curry’s incredible performance as Pennywise in 1990’s It.
The film is set to hit theaters on September 8, 2017, and will be directed by Andrés Muschiett.
