‘IT’ Returns To Scare An Entirely New Generation!
Just when you thought it was safe to like clowns again. After months of hype and plenty of teaser photos, we now have our first look at the ‘IT‘ remake. Stephen King’s most infamous clown has never looked this scary!
“In a small town of Derry, Maine, seven children come face to face with life problems, bullies and a monster that takes the shape of a clown called Pennywise.”
The film will be directed by Andrés Muschietti (‘Mama’) and written by Gary Dauberman, Chase Palmer, & Cary Joji Fukunaga. This is based on the hit novel by author Stephen King and was adapted in 1990 as a TV Mini-Series. In the TV Mini-Series, Tim Curry played the role of Pennywise The Dancing Clown.
2017’s ‘IT‘ stars Bill Skarsgård as Pennywise, a role many were cautious to see re-done but the young actor is bringing something deeply scary to Pennywise. Leading “The Loser’s Club”, the kids who come to face-to-face with the clown, is Jaeden Lieberher.
Rounding out the cast is Jeremy Ray Taylor, Sophia Lillis, Finn Wolfhard, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs, Jack Dylan Grazer, and Nicholas Hamilton in supporting roles
It was also announced the film will be broken up in two parts. The first part being released this year and the second half yet to be announced. Splitting up the film will allow for more story to be told, following the mini-series.
