New Image of Pennywise Surfaces [Update: Another Added!]
When EW debuted the new look of demented clown Pennywise for the upcoming IT remake, it was a little tough to get an accurate feel of the revamped character. Sure, the clown looked menacing, but he was so shrouded in shadows that it was a bit of a disappointing debut image. But now that the new adaptation is in post production, we have a new glimpse of the character in action, courtesy of special effects and makeup artist Tom Woodruff Jr.
Pennywise. With a balloon. Yes, please. Even if you’re not a fan of the baroque aesthetic, one thing is clear: Bill Skarsgård is completely committed to this role.
Andy Muschietti is directing the two-part adaptation. The first part is scheduled for release on September 8th, 2017.
