Bill Skarsgard is rumored to return as Pennywise the Clown in the IT prequel series being developed for HBO Max, Welcome to Derry.
The iconic horror franchise IT is finally getting another follow-up, but this time it will take place in the past. Now, rumours claim Bill Skarsgård will reprise his role as Pennywise in the HBO Max prequel series.
IT is a movie series based on the Stephen King novel of the same name. The film was remade for the present day in 2017, with a sequel that was released in 2019 to close the storyline. The It prequel series for HBO Max will take place in the town of Derry & potentially show where the horror originated.
The Illuminderi shared new details about the show were revealed, including cast descriptions. The production team is also searching for a group of young kids who will no doubt take the place of the “Losers Club.” Fear HQ is hearing that Bill Skarsgård will reprise his role as Pennywise, which means fans will get to experience the creepy performance the actor is known for all over again. The IT prequel series will reportedly be set in the ’60s & is currently casting the lead role, which will be an army pilot that is “trying to bring people together in an unlikely time.”
The IT prequel series will be titled Welcome To Derry, which in itself sounds like a way for fans to learn more about the town rather than just the villain. For those who remember, Pennywise’s power was at its strongest while people remained in the town. However, the further they got from Derry, the less of an influence the monster had on them.
This all sounds promising & considering that the show will be a prequel, it’s unlikely that Pennywise will be stopped or killed. Maybe the events of this series somehow weakened Pennywise to the point where he wasn’t able to be at his strongest. Right now, it seems horror projects are at their strongest, as the two major production companies Blumhouse & Atomic Monster are set to merge.
Welcome to Derry is in development at HBO Max.
