New IT concept art and photos tease Pennywise’s lair
New Line Cinema (via EW) has revealed some new IT concept art and photos from the upcoming horror adaptation. Along with the new pieces comes information on a change to the story for the film from the original novel: After young Georgie Denbrough meets his end in the gutter thanks to Pennywise, his body is never found. This sets up a mission for his brother Bill (played by Jaeden Lieberher) to find his brother in the belly of the beast. Check out the new images below!
When children begin to disappear in the town of Derry, Maine, a group of young kids are faced with their biggest fears when they square off against an evil clown named Pennywise, whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries.
IT stars Bill Skarsgård (Allegiant, TV’s Hemlock Grove) as the story’s central villain, Pennywise. An ensemble of young actors also star in the film, including Jaeden Lieberher (Midnight Special), Jeremy Ray Taylor (Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip), Sophia Lillis (37), Finn Wolfhard (TV’s Stranger Things), Wyatt Oleff (Guardians of the Galaxy), Chosen Jacobs (upcoming Cops and Robbers), Jack Dylan Grazer (Tales of Halloween) and Nicholas Hamilton (Captain Fantastic).
Andrés Muschietti (Mama) directed IT from a screenplay by Chase Palmer & Cary Fukunaga and Gary Dauberman, based on the novel by King. Roy Lee, Dan Lin, Seth Grahame-Smith, David Katzenberg and Barbara Muschietti are the producers, with Richard Brener, Dave Neustadter, Walter Hamada, Marty P. Ewing, Doug Davison and Jon Silk serving as executive producers.
Slated for release on September 8, 2017, the film will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures.
