IT: Chapter 2 Pennywise The Clown

Film & Television

First Look At Pennywise The Clown In ‘IT: Chapter 2’ Has Leaked

IT: Chapter 2 is currently filming in Ontario, Canada for release this time next year. Although filming has wrapped for Beverly Marsh actress, Jessica Chastain, images have been shared online of Pennywise the Clown in action. The malevolent, shapeshifting clown will be portrayed, once again, by Bill Skarsgård. In the images found on Twitter, Pennywise is perched atop a Paul Bunyan statue at Port Hope’s Memorial Park.

The shot seemingly confirms that we will see the Paul Bunyan statue coming to life to terrorize the adult version of Richie, played by Bill Hader in the upcoming film. It’s a notable scene from the Stephen King novel.

The film’s first synopsis:

Because every 27 years evil revisits the town of Derry, Maine, “IT CHAPTER TWO” brings the characters—who’ve long since gone their separate ways—back together as adults, nearly three decades after the events of the first film.

When a distantly familiar and disturbing incident occurs, the estranged Losers are alerted to the return of the malevolent entity that they encountered so many years previous. As adults, the group can scarcely remember what took place but they do know that it was something terrible.

In order to remember exactly what happened, and reestablish the bond they had that helped them temporarily defeat Pennywise the first time, the friends retrace their steps from when they were younger. The young cast from the first film will return for these flashbacks.

IT: Chapter 2

IT: Chapter 2 also stars James McAvoy as Bill, Jessica Chastain as Beverly Marsh, Jay Ryan as Ben, James Ransone as Eddie, with Andy Bean as Stanely Uris, Isaiah Mustafa as Mike. Of course, Bill Skarsgård returns as Pennywise the Clown.

One of the more interesting casting decisions was Xavier Dolan to play Adrian Mellon. Some people were disappointed, although most I would say were relieved, following the decision to leave the orgy out of the first movie. Fans were then shocked to discover that one particularly disturbing part of the book has made the cut for the sequel.

The casting of Adrian Mellon confirmed the inclusion of a homophobic incident that leads to a fall from a bridge, and a brutal murder at the hands of our infamous clown.

IT: Chapter 2 Andy Muschietti Pennywise

Director Andy Muschietti has promised on a couple of occasions that this sequel will be scarier and more focused on horror than the first one, and i think the inclusion of this scene goes part way in proving that.

Watch all the action in IT: Chapter 2 on September 9, 2019.
