About a month ago, the first look at the new Pennywise hit the web and it certainly did not disappoint!
Now, we have a full photo of what everyone’s favorite demented clown is going to look like in the upcoming IT reboot, thanks to Entertainment Weekly. The first film in a two-film project based on Stephen King’s seminal novel is due out September 8, 2017.
Directed by Andy Muschietti (MAMA), this version of Pennywise is quite different than the one we remember from the early 1990s, when Tim Curry absolutely crushed it as the maniacal sewer-dwelling entity.
Bill Skarsgard will be portraying Pennywise in this adaptation and perhaps more unsettling than the makeup design for the clown that was unveiled last month, this new photo gives us a look at what exactly Pennywise will be wearing. It’s an eerie mix between long gone eras that really play on the “court jester” idea.
Costume designer Janie Bryant, one of the best in the business when it comes to period costumes (she handled DEADWOOD and MAD MEN costume duties), has created a fantastic outfit here and says that it is perfect for the character because “He (Pennywise) is definitely a clown from a different time.”
This design is definitely nightmare fuel and should only get people more excited for the upcoming film!
