"No matter where you go, there you are."


Here is the full look at It’s new Pennywise



Bill Skarsgård (Hemlock Grove) is the new Pennywise, for the latest adaptation of Stephen King’s It, which will be two films. At 25, Skarsgård is a much younger Pennywise than Tim Curry, who was in his mid-40s when he played the role in the 1990 TV movie.

We have already seen him in closeup, but EW had this new image that shows the full costume. What do you think of it?

He will be joining Jaeden Lieberher, Finn Wolfhard, Jack Dylan Grazer, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs and Jeremy Ray Taylor.

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.

Emmy-winning costume designer Janie Bryant (Deadwood, Mad Men), which is inspired by the various ages that Pennywise has lived through.

“The costume definitely incorporates all these otherworldly past lives, if you will,” Bryant says. “He is definitely a clown from a different time.”

“There is almost a doll-like quality to the costume,” Bryant says. “The pants being short, the high waistline of the jacket, and the fit of the costume is a very important element. It gives the character a child-like quality.”

“The pompoms are orange, and then with the trim around the cuffs and the ankles, it’s basically a ball fringe that’s a combination of orange, red, and cinnamon. It’s almost like Pennywise fades into his environment. But there are accents to pull out the definition of the gray silk.”
