Creepy-Ass Pennywise the Clown Jack-in-the-Box Revealed as IT Wraps Production
Director Andres Muschietti has wrapped production of the the first film for the big screen adaptation of Stephen King's It. To celebrate the film wrapping, the director posted a photo of a creepy-ass Pennywise the Clown jack-in-the-box. I assume this is a prop that was used in the film. It has an aged look like it comes from the 1920s or 30s.
I also included a few other photos from the production that the director has posted on his Instagram page that are worth checking out.
The first film is set in the 1980s and will focus on a group of friends known as the "Losers Club" who band together to battle a terrifying monster who is killing children in Derry, Maine. The second film is set 30 years later in modern times when the monster returns and the Losers Club come back together to try and destroy It once and for all.
The movie stars Jaeden Lieberher (Midnight Special) as Bill Denbrough, Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things) as Richie Tozier, Sophia Lillis as Beverly Marsh, Jack Dylan Grazer(Tales of Halloween) as Stan Uris, Wyatt Oleff (Guardians of the Galaxy) as Eddie Kaspbrak, Chosen Jacobs (Hawaii Five-0) as Mike Hanlon, and Jeremy Ray Taylor (42) as Ben Hanscom. Here's a official synopsis:
Based on the novel by Stephen King, the film’s story recalls a promise made twenty-eight years ago that forces seven adults to reunite in Derry, Maine, where as teenagers they battled an evil creature that preyed on the city’s children. Unsure that their Losers Club had vanquished the creature all those years ago, the seven had vowed to return to Derry if IT should ever reappear. Now, children are being murdered again and their repressed memories of that summer return as they prepare to do battle with the monster lurking in Derry’s sewers once more.
The first film is set to be released on September 8th, 2017. To catch up on all of our previously reported It news, click here.
