Last month it was announced that Stephen King’s demonic clown IT would be returning to the big screen.
It was revealed that Bill Skarsgård would take on the key role of the demonic clown like creature known as Pennywise, which preys on the fears of a group of children in a small Maine town.
Now Entertainment Weekly has given fans its terrifying first look at Skarsgård in full make up.
The initial casting for the remake also includes Jaeden Lieberher, Finn Wolfhard, Jack Dylan Grazer, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs and Jeremy Ray Taylor.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly Skarsgård said: ‘It’s important that we do something fresh and original for this one. It’s purposely not going toward that weird, greasy look.
‘What’s funny to this evil entity might not be funny to everyone else. But he thinks it’s funny.’
IT is still yet to have an official release date, but is rumoured to petrify audiences at some point next year.
