As we have reported, Stephen King’s IT will be making its way to the big screen very soon. Variety is now reporting that they have found their evil clown… Will Poulter (The Maze Runner, We’re The Millers) has been signed on to star as Pennywise in the two-part film. Tim Curry (Rocky Horror Picture Show) haunted anyone who dared to watch 1990 ABC miniseries.
Here is the storyline as found on IMDB: In the Town of Derry, the local kids are disappearing one by one, leaving behind torn body parts/remains. Soon afterwards, in a place known as ‘The Barrens’, a group of seven kids are united by their horrifying and strange encounters with a clown called Pennywise, which they all share, but one kid, Bill Denborough, has a more personal vendetta with the clown. 27 years after their last encounter together with Pennywise, the ‘Losers Club’ has regrouped from their successful lives and businesses by Mike Hanlon,the only member of the Losers Club that stayed in Derry, because IT has returned, and kids are disappearing again. The only problem is that they have all forgotten what occurred that summer. But through a blood oath, they return. It’s up to The Lucky Seven to regain their memories, to think of the key to killing Pennywise, and to stay alive long enough to end his tyranny but to also realize what brought them together in the first place.
