, so you’d better start running because just released the first look of the murderous clown from next year’s remake of Stephen King’s child-murdering classic, nightmare-inducing classic It.
According to , It will be “set in a small town in Maine, seven children known as The Losers Club come face to face with life problems, bullies and a monster that takes the shape of a clown called Pennywise.”
Take a look at the image below:
The movie will star Hemlock Grove alum Bill Skarsgård as Pennywise himself, taking over the role from Tim Curry, who made Pennywise famous with his twisted reworking of King’s terrifying character.
Skarsgård recently spoke to about the character, saying:
“It’s such an extreme character. Inhumane. It’s beyond even a sociopath, because he’s not even human. He’s not even a clown. I’m playing just one of the beings It creates.”
Needless to say, Skarsgård has some big shoes to fill, but by golly, he certainly is starting to look the part.
What do you think of our new Pennywise?
If there are explosions, I’m in.
