Bill Skarsgård is back in his Pennywise costume, and he’s just as terrifying as we remember him. The Swedish actor will return to playing the creepy clown in It: Chapter Two, and first photos from the set are finally here.
Skarsgård was spotted filming scenes for the horror sequel in Toronto, and he’s looking sinister as ever. The leaked photo shows Pennywise sitting on the shoulder of a gigantic Paul Bunyan statue. In the source material, Pennywise took over the body of the statue to terrorize our heroes, and it seems we’re going to see this iconic scene in the movie as well.
It: Chapter Two boasts an impressive cast playing the grown-up versions of the members of Losers’ Club. Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy, Bill Hader and Jay Ryan will be amongst the actors replacing younger cast. Skarsgård will obviously be back and he can’t wait to play against these amazing actors.
“It’s going to be a very different experience this time around, just given the fact that you have all of these incredible, seasoned actors to play against, as opposed to having all the kids. So it’s going to be a different experience for sure. But I’m looking forward to it,” said Skarsgård.
It: Chapter Two is coming to the theaters on September 6, 2019. Andy Muschietti will return to direct.
