The reboot of Stephen King’s IT begins filming next month in Toronto. Already, bits and pieces of information are starting to surface. Earlier this month we reported that Bill Skarsgard has been cast as the terrifying entity Pennywise. Now, we have two new pieces of information for you.
Andy Muschietti (Mama) will be in the director’s chair for the two-part remake of IT, set to arrive in theaters on September 8, 2017. The first film centers on a group of teens, referred to as “The Losers Club”, who go head-to-head with the entity that takes the shape of a demented clown. The second will involve “The Losers Club” who have come back to town as adults and once again must face Pennywise.
