Bill Skarsgard (Netflix’s Hemlock Grove, son of Stellan Skarsgard, brother of Alexander Skarsgard) has beat Will Poulter and Kirk Acevedo for the role of Pennywise the Clown in Stephen King’s It Remake. Skarsgard will play the iconic scary clown in director Andres Muschietti‘s (Mama (2013)) It (2017). Skarsgard will star alongside Jaeden Lieberher, Finn Wolfhard, Jack Dylan Grazer, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs, and Jeremy Ray Taylor. Warner Bros. will tell the story in two parts similar to the previous films’ two-part story with the first part featuring the kids’ adventure and the second part about the kids revisiting as adults to finish up business. The first part of It (2017) will release in movie theaters on September 8, 2017.
The story follows a group of teens called the Losers Club who defeat a creature called It. Years later, the creature returns, and the club, now adults, have to band together again even though they have no memory of the first battle.
Synopsis: In a small town of Derry, Maine, seven children come face to face with life problems, bullies and a monster that takes the shape of a clown called Pennywise.
