Will Poulter to Play Scary Clown Pennywise in 'It' Remake

Will Poulter is in talks to play famous horrifying clown Pennywise in a remake of Stephen King‘s scary film It.

True Detective director Cary Fukunaga will take on the film with the 22-year-old We’re the Millers star in the leading role.

It was originally a TV movie starring John Ritter and Tim Curry, who played the clown and instantly became a cult classic. Cary has insisted the film version will stay true to Stephen King‘s novel, which is very lengthy.

Mark Rylance and Ben Mendelsohn were also apparently contenders for the role, Variety reports. But, Cary could not turn down Will after giving an amazing audition!
