First Look At The New Pennywise The Clown In Upcoming 'IT' Remake

By ECMG Staff

If you hate clowns, then get ready folks, because for some ridiculous reason we are getting a remake of the amazing cult classic Stephen King's IT. Just in case you were wondering the amazing Tim Curry is not coming back as the clown, instead we have up and coming actor Bill Skarsgard as Pennywise the Clown.

"It’s such an extreme character. Inhumane," the actor explains. "It’s beyond even a sociopath, because he’s not even human. He’s not even a clown. I’m playing just one of the beings It creates. It’s important that we do something fresh and original for this one. It’s purposely not going toward that weird, greasy look. It truly enjoys the shape of the clown Pennywise, and enjoys the game and the hunt. What’s funny to this evil entity might not be funny to everyone else. But he thinks it’s funny."

Check out the first look image below and then sound off in the comments section with your thoughts.

It is set hit theaters on September 8th, 2017.
