Bill Skarsgård who plays the Pennywise in the new version of Stephen King’s IT, has signed on for his next role. The talented actor, who made a name for himself in the series Hemlock Grove, will co-star as a young man with a unusual legal problem in Castle Rock, from horror master Stephen King and J. J. Abrams.
Skarsgård will co-star alongside André Holland (Moonlight), Malanie Lynskey, Jane Levy, and Carrie star Sissy Spacek in the series set in King’s multiverse. Taking place in the fictional Maine town of Castle Rock, the series will explore multiple themes that connect the stories that have been created by King in the past.
Dustin Thomason and Sam Shaw developed Castle Rock, set to begin filming later this year, based on characters created by King. They also will serve as executive producers along with Ben Stephenson, Liz Glotzer, and J. J. Abrams. The series is from Warner Bros. and Bad Robot and will air exclusively on Hulu.
