New Photo of Pennywise the Clown in Stephen King's IT - "I Am Everything You Ever Were Afraid Of!"
Update: The new image was removed at the request of the studio. The image we replaced with it above is one that was officially released.
It's been awhile since we've seen anything from the upcoming feature film adaptation of Stephen King's IT. The film is being directed by Andy Muschietti (Mama), and it's currently in post-production.
Thanks to makeup effects artist Tom Woodruff, we have a new photo to share with you featuring Bill Skarsgård as Pennywise the Clown and he looks creepy as hell. This certainly looks like it will be a terrifying version of the character. More terrifying than Tim Curry? Probably not, but I'm still excited for the movie! To read more information on the character and details behind the costume they designed for him, click here. It's pretty interesting!
There are two films being developed to tell this incredible story. The first one 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.
Jaeden Lieberher (Midnight Special) as Bill Denbrough, Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things) as Richie Tozier, newcomer 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.
The first film is set to be released on September 8th, 2017.
