The new adaptation of Stephen King’s It has finally announced the new Pennywise. Actor, Bill Skarsgård, from Anna Karenina and the Divergent Series’ Allegiant, will attempt to fill the red rubbery shoes of the legendary Tim Curry. This is a risky role for Skarsgård because of how loved and hated Tim Curry was as the evil clown.

Director, Andrés Muschietti describes the creepy entertainer in an interview with Entertainment Weekly: “Pennywise shows up, he’s front and center, and he does his show. He has an act. So it’s weird all the time, and every little thing implies a further threat.”
