Time will tell if the remake of Stephen King’s ‘IT’ will scare a new generation of horror fans. But already, it’s horrifying antagonist star, “Pennywise”, has successfully spooked one group of people: the movie’s young cast! Director Andrés Muschietti brought a few clips of ‘IT’ to SXSW 2017, as well as a few tidbits about what to expect. Early press images of Pennywise have already done the legwork of visually separating Bill Skarsgard’s version of the character from that of Tim Curry’s portrayal. But according to Muschietti, the two Pennywises also have different personalities. He says…
“The day that he showed up on the stage, they fucking freaked out,” Muschietti said. “Bill is like, seven-foot high, and I can’t describe how scary he looks in person. He’s a wiry man, crouching, making sounds, snotting, drooling, speaking in Swedish sometimes. Terrifying.”
‘IT’ will hit theaters this September, and expect a first-look trailer to hit the internet and theaters in the coming weeks!
