Stephen King’s IT has got a new Pennywise


Pennywise IT

“We all float down here!”

New Line‘s two-part adaptation of Stephen King’s IT originally had Cary Fukunaga (True Detective) set to direct it and Will Poulter (The Revenant) was going to play Pennywise.

That fell through and the film seemed to be in limbo for a while, but things are moving ahead once more.

Bill Skarsgård (Hemlock Grove) is in final negotiations to star in the film as Pennywise, according to THR. He will be joining Jaeden Lieberher, Finn Wolfhard, Jack Dylan Grazer, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs and Jeremy Ray Taylor. Of course Tim Curry played Pennywise in the 1990 miniseries so Bill has got a big act to follow.

The story follows a group of teens called the Losers Club who defeat a creature called It. Years later, the creature returns, and the former club members, now adults, have to band together again even though they have no memory of the first battle.

Andy Muschietti (Mama), is directing. Dan Lin, Roy Lee, Seth Grahame-Smith, David Katzenberg and Barbara Muschietti are producing. The first movie will tell the kids’ story, while the second movie will focus on the adults.

Do you think Bill Skarsgård has got what it takes to be Pennywise?
