A big screen adaptation of Stephen King’s IT is finally happening and thanks to Entertainment Weekly we have a new image showcasing Bill Skarsgård as the most scary clown of all.
In the photo we can see Pennywise, one of the guises of a shape-shifting evil, lurking in the sewers, ready to lure kids and feast on them. Take a look below!
Despite being the first big screen adaptation of the novel, this film has a lot to live up to, with Tim Curry’s turn as Pennywise in the 90s TV miniseries ingrained deeply in audiences memories. Director Andrés Muschietti (Mama) certainly hopes this new version will be just as scary and explains that,
Pennywise shows up, he’s front and center, and he does his show. He has an act. So it’s weird all the time, and every little thing implies a further threat.
We’ll find out how this new version works out when IT is released on September 8, 2017.
