We knew it was coming, but nothing could prepare us for stepping back in the sewer drains of Derry for the reboot of Stephen King’s terrifying tale: “IT”.
Directed by Andres Muschietti, the film is a re-imagining of the 1990 miniseries, swapping out Tim Curry for Bill Skarsgard as the shape-shifting, kid-hungry clown Pennywise immortalized in our nightmares.
When children start to go missing, seven local kids are forced to face their biggest fears as they go head-to-head with the terrifying jokester, whose history of murder and violence dates back centuries.
With a screenplay adapted by “True Detective” director Cary Fukunaga, Chase Palmer and Gary Dauberman, “IT” stars a paper boat load of new talent, including “Stranger Things” star Finn Wolfhard. And the Toronto-shot film has already been given horror author Stephen King’s stamp of approval.
“IT” is set to be unleashed in theatres on Sept. 8.
