Black Mirror‘s twisty, twisted tales will continue to unfold on Friday, Oct. 21, Netflix announced on Wednesday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour.
An anthology series created by Charlie Brooker, Black Mirror’s run of six Season 3 episodes — which were commissioned by Netflix after the first seasons (plus a Jon Hamm-fronted Christmas special) debuted across the pond, and are being described as “crazier, »
Production continues on the new adaptation of Stephen King’s It, the seemingly ill-fated movie that has gone through directors and stars like normal movies go through popcorn sales. While we know the movie isn’t set to premiere until September 2017, we still hear about it all the time. The movie is almost a bad luck charm.
Currently, the film is set to premiere with Mama director Andrés Muschietti and Hemlock Grove star Bill Skarsgård as Pennywise, and I for one am pulling for it. That being said, a new picture of Pennywise was released yesterday along with an interview with Skarsgård at Entertainment Weekly, seem to show a Pennywise we may not recognize.
“It’s such an extreme character. Inhumane,” Skarsgård tells the outlet. “It’s beyond even a sociopath, because he’s not even human. He’s not even a clown. I’m playing just one of the beings It creates… »

I have to admit: when Cary Fukunaga dropped out of directing the new It adaptation and the entire project sort of fell apart, I stopped tracking it as closely as I had been. It's not that I don't like Andres Muschietti's debut feature Mama (for the record, it was a welcome surprise), but the sudden change in production deflated my interest.
Everyone's been wondering just what the new Pennywise would look like and though there have been more than a handful of interpretations online - including one from the director - we now have our official first look at what Bill Skarsgård (of "Hemlock Grove" fame) looks like in the make-up and it's pretty creepy with a clear homage to Tim Curry's version.
The first half of the two-part project isn't due until Se [Continued ...] »
Steer clear of storm drains and get your first look at Bill Skarsgård as Pennywise in the new It movie.
Unveiled by EW, the new image shows Skarsgård as the ancient, evil entity that first terrorized residents of Derry on the printed page in Stephen King’s seminal 1986 novel, It, before Tim Curry brought the character to life in frightening fashion in the 1990 two-part miniseries adaptation.
Now it’s Skarsgård’s turn to don the white makeup, bright red nose, and sinister smile. The former Hemlock Grove actor spoke with EW about his incarnation of the evil force known as It:
“It’s such an extreme character. Inhumane. It’s beyond even a sociopath, because he’s not even human. He’s not even a clown. I’m playing just one of the beings It creates.”
Skarsgård also expressed to EW how it is vital to do something different with the role this time around, »

Director Andy Muschietti posts a few teaser images from his upcoming two-part film adaptation of Stephen King’s It...
New Line’s efforts to update Stephen King’s nightmarish 1986 novel It did not exactly have an easy path to production. Last year, the project lost its long-attached director Cary Fukunaga over “creative differences” with the studio. Consequently, it also lost its would-be new killer clown Pennywise in Will Poulter. However, after a trip back from the drawing board, new director Andy Muschietti has announced that his two-part adaptation of It has commenced production.
Muschietti broke the news by posting a few teaser Instagram photos from the It set, strewn with indicative imagery such as his director’s chair affixed with the film’s new logo. Oh, and the seemingly innocuous snapshot of a group of balloons floating in a hallway that will likely evoke the »

Fans of Stephen King’s epic novel It know that in addition to the titular and ancient villain, the group of young friends known as the Losers’ Club had to face menaces of the mortal variety in their small Maine town, and the latest cast member to join the upcoming film adaptation of It will play one of the human antagonizers of Derry’s protectors.
According to THR, Owen Teague will play the character Patrick Hocksetter in the new It film. Patrick is one of several people who want to make the lives of the Losers’ Club members a living hell, and he seems to have the twisted mindset for such an undertaking, as THR mentions that he keeps his fridge stocked with the carcasses of animals he kills in his spare time.
Viewers may recognize Teague as Nolan Rayburn on Netflix’s Bloodline series, and he will also appear »

There is no shortage of Stephen King adaptations heading to both the big and small screen over the next couple of years, but a fan favorite is finally getting done. The It remake has been in development hell for quite some time, but now with a director firmly in place and even a release date locked down, the project is moving forward and has started the casting process. Jaeden Lieberher has been tapped to play one of the members of The Losers Club.
Lieberher had a couple of breakout roles in St. Vincent alongside Bill Murray and earlier this year in the indie sci-fi flick Midnight Special. He will be playing Bill Denbrough, the leader of the young friend group known as The Losers Club. The role was originally played by Jonathan Brandis in the TV mini series that up until now has been the only live action adaptation of the beloved novel. »
Yesterday, we reported that New Line Cinema has been meeting with several actors who have been testing for the iconic role of Pennywise the clown in their remake of Stephen King's It. One of the contenders mentioned was Kirk Acevedo (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes), but it wasn't clear if he was a top contender, or how many other actors the studio was meeting with. Now we have word that Bill Skarsgard (Hemlock Grove) is in final negotiations for this coveted role
When the project was moving forward with director Cary Fukunaga at the helm, Will Poulter (The Maze Runner) was attached to play Pennywise. However, The Hollywood Reporter reports that he was forced to drop out due to scheduling conflicts, after the search for a new director pushed the movie by a year, making the actor no longer available. The studio was reportedly torn over whether to »
It seems they've found the new Pennywise the Clown.
25-year-old Swedish actor Bill Skarsgard, son of Stellan and brother of Alexander, has scored the role of the iconic supernatural clown Pennywise in the new two-part film adaptation of Stephen King's "It" for New Line Cinema.
The first part focuses on the group of teens called the Losers Club who defeat a powerful entity that is killing kids around their town, the second is set around the repercussions on these characters as adults thirty years later when the creature has seemingly returned.
Skarsgard, best known for his leading role on Netflix's "Hemlock Grove," takes over the role from Will Poulter ("We're the Millers") who was originally cast in the role back when Cary Fukunaga was attached to direct. "Mama" filmmaker Andy Muschietti is now helming the film.
The project has also cast the child versions of the characters. They include »

Looks like it's a day for creepy killer clown movies. Earlier today it was revealed that Bill Skarsgard (Hemlock Grove) is in talks to play Pennywise -- who is in this writer's mind, evil incarnate -- in the remake of Stephen King's It. Now we have the first clip of Spider-Man: Homecoming director Jon Watts' upcoming horror movie Clown. As in Sundance darling Cop Car, Watts is once again depicting kids in peril. The Eli Roth-produced film looks to have a far different tone, however. Clown was actually Watts' directorial debut, and is now set to get a release from Dimension Films and Anchor Bay Entertainment in select theaters and On Demand on June 17. Take a look at the first clip below. »

Warner Bros. and Mama director Andy Muschietti have finally zeroed in on an actor to step into the garish, oversized shoes of Pennywise the Clown.
In the works over at New Line, news of Skarsgard’s casting hails from The Hollywood Reporter, revealing that the actor has entered final negotiations of the landmark deal, potentially joining an ensemble that includes Jaeden Lieberher of St. Vincent fame, Finn Wolfhard, Jack Dylan Grazer, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs and Jeremy Ray Taylor.
Hopping between one time period and the next, Warner Bros.’ long-gestating adaptation of King’s thriller will be told across two arcs, with the first unfolding during the formative years of the Losers Club, as a group of teens fend of the titular monster. »
