Will Poulter has been confirmed as Stephen King's Pennywise The Clown. He is a great choice! I'm very pleased for him, I think he's a brilliant actor and I can't wait to see how he plays Pennywise. Its all in the eyebrows. I wonder how he will compare with Tim Curry's nightmare educing portrayal which was truley eerie.
Pennywise the clown is one of the most enduring horror images on screen, one of the evil incarnations of the demon that haunts a town in Stephen King’s It. Now someone has been found to inherit the role from Tim Curry, who brought him so memorably to life in the 1991 TV miniseries version. Will Poulter is that brave soul. Poulter might seem like an odd choice given his relative youth, but he’s been delivering great performances for years, and showed a darker side with last year’s The Maze Runner. According to Variety, Fukunaga – who had been initially considering older actors – was impressed with his audition and the early footage of his work Alejandro González Iñárritu’s The Revenant apparently shows an even more villainous side.
