With the casting of Bill Skarsgård as Pennywise the clown, Andy Muschietti’s It remake is gearing up for filming, and young star Finn Wolfhard has shared a picture of the kids who’ll make up the Losers’ Club.
From left to right there’s Jaeden Lieberher (Midnight Special) as Bill Denborough, Wolfhard (Stranger Things) as Richie Tozier, Chosen Jacobs (Cops And Robbers) as Mike Hanlon, Jeremy Ray Taylor (Ant-Man) as Ben Hanscom, Jack Dylan Grazer (Tales Of Halloween) as Eddie Kasprak, Wyatt Oleff (Guardians Of The Galaxy ) as Stan Uris and as-yet-unnamed actress as Beverly Marsh.
Meanwhile, the film has cast its principal bully Henry Bowers. Deadline reports that Nicholas Hamilton (Captain Fantastic, Strangerland) has been cast in the role, joining the previously announced Owen Teague as fellow bully Patrick Hockstetter. Henry Bowers is a very nasty piece of work, who makes it his life’s mission to torment our heroes.
There’s also news from Bloody Disgusting that creature performer extraordinary Javier Botet (Crimson Peak, The Other Side Of The Door, Mama, The Conjuring 2, [REC]) will be starring in the film, which guarantees some further nightmares.
As exciting as all of this is, the biggest question we have at the moment is…what is Skarsgård going to look like as Pennywise?
“The story follows a group of kids called the Losers Club who defeat a creature called It. Years later, the creature returns, and the former club members, now adults, have to band together again even though they have no memory of the first battle.”
It is released on 17 September 2017. Keep up with the latest horror news with the new issue of SciFiNow.
