Will Poulter is Pennywise in Stephen King's "It" Remake

Posted: May 5th, 2015 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Will Poulter is Pennywise in Stephen KingSubmit Comment
New Line and director Cary Fukunaga ("True Detective") have been working on a new adaptation of Stephen King's horror classic "It." And now comes word that Will Poulter (We're the Millers) is in negotiations to play Pennywise, the clown who lures in children. The plan is to split the story into two feature films.

The original story followed a group of outcast kids who come together over summer break to take on the monster that's haunting their town, battling their own personal monsters in the process.

King's popular book was made into a TV miniseries in 1991 starring John Ritter and Tim Curry, who played the clown. A film adaptation was never undertaken given the size of the King novel, but Fukunaga has been very vocal recently that the latest script will stay true to the King story while also giving the film a new look.

Fukunaga has been considering actors in their 40s and 50s to play Pennywise, but decided to go in a different direction by casting much younger. Poulter is 22 years old and also has experience playing a dark role after shooting "The Revenant" with Leonardo DiCaprio.

Should have got Adam Lanza's corpse to play the character.
