A new Pennywise? Bill Skarsgard, one of the stars of Hemlock Grove, will play Pennywise the Clown, the role made iconic by Tim Curry in the 1991 TV miniseries that starred John Ritter, Annette O'Toole, Harry Anderson and Richard Thomas.
The first part of Stephen King’s It began shooting in Toronto in July.
From the online site:The-line-up.com Writer Jessica Ferri says IT is the best from the King of terror. I beg to differ but here is what she says:
This one is particularly timely, as the first image of Pennywise, from the upcoming remake of IT, has taken the Internet by storm. What is it, exactly, about Pennywise that makes him so freaking terrifying? Well, aside from the whole creepy clown aspect, there’s the fact that Pennywise is the literal embodiment of evil, feeding on the fears (and, lives) of children. It doesn’t get much scarier than that.
