Pennywise Actor Bill Skarsgard Says ‘IT: Chapter 2’ Will Be Actively Different



Pennywise Actor Bill Skarsgard

IT‘s very own pennywise actor Bill Skarsgard recently spoke with the good folks over at IGN about the highly-anticipated follow up IT: Chapter 2, which is set for release in 2019.

The first movie worked so well at what it is trying to do, I think, and ultimately that is the kids’ story, and you follow these kids and you sort of fall in love with these kids. 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,” Skarsgard told IGN.

He continues: “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?

Skarsgard on The Ritual of Chud: “I mean, it’s very abstract. And I kind of like that. It could be almost a sort of [serialized] surrealistic 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 transdimensional 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.

Could we see the Ritual of Chud in Andres Muschietti’s IT sequel? Stay tuned to Dark Universe to find out soon.

IT: Chapter 2 will reach theaters on September 6th, 2019.
