IT movie part 2: Bill Skarsgard teases Pennywise’s ORIGINS in sequel

After critical acclaim and huge box office success to become the highest-grossing horror of all time, IT’s sequel has been announced.

Set 27 years later, part 2 will see a grown up Loser’s club taking on Pennywise’s return.

Now Bill Skarsgard, who played the evil clown, has teased how the sequel will explore IT’s origins and backstory.

Speaking with IGN, the 27-year-old said: “The first movie worked so well at what it is trying to do, I think, and ultimately that is the kids’ story, and you sort of fall in love with these kids.”

Skarsgard continued: “And the second one will be the adult story. And I think the right way to do it is to make that movie actively different.

“I think there might be worth exploring sort of the psychological aspects of horror, but also maybe the sort of cosmological existence of this being.

“What is he, and where does he come from?

“And, you know, it’s hardly answered in the novel, either. I mean, it’s very abstract. And I kind of like that.”

The actor added: “IT could be almost a sort of [serialised] sort of psychedelic trip if you go into the mind of Pennywise.

“And if you’ve read the novel you know that they do actually go into his mind. Or they go into this trans-dimensional place, and they sort of beat him in this place.

“Which might be interesting, what that place would be, and what would it look like. There’s opportunities, I think, and I’m excited for it.”

IT movie 2 will be released on September 6, 2019.
