How will Hemlock Grove’s Bill Skarsgard, going to portray Pennywise? Will he one-up Tim Curry? For better or for worse Skarsgard has been reported by THR to be in final negotiations to play Pennywise, the shape-shifting horror icon for the IT remake.
Also starring Jaeden Lieberher (Midnight Special), Finn Wolfhard (“Stranger Things”), Jack Dylan Grazer (Tales of Halloween ), Wyatt Oleff (Guardians of the Galaxy ), Chosen Jacobs (Cops and Robbers) and Jeremy Ray Taylor (Ant-Man). With Mama director Andy Muschietti directing.
It follows a group of kids called The Loser’s Club and the aftermath of a tragedy that befalls one of them. The remake is following the same formula that was followed in 1990. The film will be split up into two parts, first half following the children, the second half following the characters as adults.
