Port Hope Gets Transformed for Stephen King’s ‘It’



The small town of Port Hope in Southern Ontario is getting a facelift as it transforms into Derry, Maine, the setting of Stephen King’s It. Small things are being updated, like store signs, which movies are playing at the local theater, and even the erection of a statue of Paul Bunyan. All of this is to allow the film to shoot from today through next Monday, according to Northumberland News. Photos of the changes can be seen below.

Directed by Andy Muschietti (Mama), the two-part film will see the first segment released on September 8th, 2017.

The book follows these characters as children and then again years later as adults when they come together to face their fears one last time in the hopes of defeating their foe.

It also stars Bills Skarsgard as Pennywise the Clown, Owen Teague (“Bloodline”), Jaeden Lieberher (Midnight Special), Jack Dylan Grazer (Tales of Halloween ), Wyatt Oleff (Guardians of the Galaxy ), Chosen Jacobs (Cops and Robbers) and Jeremy Ray Taylor (Ant-Man).
