Let’s face it: Tim Curry’s classic portrayal of Pennywise in the original, made-for-TV adaptation of Stephen King’s IT haunts us to this day, and is likely one of the leading culprits into why so many are deathly afraid of clowns these days.
In case you didn’t know, IT is getting remade into a feature film that is currently in production and due to hit theaters in 2017. Of course, we already knew that Bill Skarsgård had been cast in the role of Pennywise, which led many to wonder if he could pull off the same level of terror as Tim Curry.
Now that we have our first official picture of Skarsgård in-character courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, we may have a clue.
Yep. Goodbye good dreams.
