Allegiant's Bill Skarsgard to Play Pennywise the Clown in 'It' Reboot

Bill Skarsgard, known for his roles on Netflix’s Hemlock Grove and Allegiant, has been tapped to play the iconic scary clown Pennywise in the reboot of Stephen King‘s It, Variety reports.

Will Poulter was originally tapped for the role last year, but had to drop out due to scheduling conflicts. The studio was apparently conflicted about whether to stick with a younger actor, or go with an older actor. Hugo Weaving was also in the running, but they went with Bill, 25.

You may not also know, but Bill is the younger brother of Legend of Tarzan star Alexander Skarsgard!

    Leave it be DO NOT make these movies the story is not two parts it’s one story with how childhood ridicule and promises made these adults come back to the town they tried to save as part of the losers club. Sick of great Stephen King books being made into sucky movies!!!
