After years of a struggle to get an IT remake on the big screen, it finally seems that there is now no stopping Mama’s Andy Muschietti new planned 2 part movie hitting the big screen. With production well under way and with Bill Skarsgård taking over the iconic role from Tim Curry as Pennywise, a first image of our new evil clown has been released.
Are you ready?
You have to admit that the image above is pretty cool, not too over the top and looks like he could scare a whole new generation.
Skarsgård has been talking about his new look:
“Tim Curry’s performance was truly great, but it’s important for me to do something different because of that. I’ll never be able to make a Tim Curry performance as good as Tim Curry.”
“There’s a childishness to the character, because he’s so closely linked to the kids. The clown is the manifestation of children’s imaginations, so there’s something child-like about that.”
Have to admit and say that this IT film, despite my lack of interest in remakes is becoming quite a tantalising prospect!
IT is released on September 8th, 2017.
