From Netflix’s “Stranger Things” to Stephen King’s It, producer Barbara Muschietti shared the first shot of Finn Wolfhard in the Stephen King adaptation. It looks as if it’s from one of the flashback scenes that set the stage for Pennywise’s modern day return.
In theaters September 8, 2017, “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.“
Bill Skarsgard stars as Pennywise, the sewer-dwelling monster that will torment several children in small town Maine.
Director Andy Muschietti (Mama) recently explained that what makes Pennywise a powerful villain is that he has nothing to hide. “Pennywise shows up, he’s front and center, and he does his show. He has an act,” Muschietti says. “So it’s weird all the time, and every little thing implies a further threat.”
Jaeden Lieberher, Finn Wolfhard, Nicholas Hamilton, Jack Dylan Grazer, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs, and Jeremy Ray Taylor are the modern Losers’ Club, seven kids who are terrorized by Pennywise.
Creature performer Javier Botet will play The Leper, and Owen Teague plays Patrick Hocksetter, a bully who torment the Losers’ Club.
Dan Lin, Roy Lee, Seth Grahame-Smith, David Katzenberg, and Barbara Muschietti produce.
