Stephen King’s It is back to terrify us all over again with another scary AF clown set to haunt us when we sleep.
There is no way you could have forgotten Tim Curry’s performance as Pennywise the Clown in the 1990 TV miniseries It. Based on the freaky book by Stephen King, we never saw clowns the same again... ever!
Legit, everyone’s fear of clowns came from this.
AND. THE. CLOWN. IS. BACK!
Here’s your first look -
Played by Bill Skarsgård, the actor told EW that the filmmakers are looking for something “fresh and original”. Great, a fresh new killer clown! Skarsgård is also aware that he has big shoes to fill, revealing he is “aiming to do something different… I’ll never be able to make a Tim Curry performance as good as Tim Curry.”
EW has also reported that producers intend to make the story in two parts. The first film focusing on the clown terrorizing kids, and the second film following the same characters now all grown up and seeking revenge!
The ‘It’ reboot is set to be released September, 2017.
