News about the forthcoming big screen adaptation of Stephen Kings IT has been rolling in on a regular basis. Today is no exception. We now have your first look at the entire Losers’ Club from the new film. The image comes courtesy of young Finn Wolfhard, who shared the snap via his Instagram. You can check it out for yourself, below!
As we recently reported, Bill Skarsgard (Hemlock Grove) is in final negotiations to appear as the antagonist in the upcoming big screen adaptation of Stephen King’s It. On board to play the members of The Losers’ Club are Wolfhard (as Richie Tozier), Jaeden Lieberher (as Bill Denbrough), Jack Dylan Grazer (as Eddie Kaspbrak), Wyatt Oleff (as Stanley Uris), Chosen Jacobs (Mike Hanlon) and Jeremy Ray Taylor (as Ben Hanscom). In addition, Owen Teague has been tapped to play Patrick Hockstetter, who torments the Losers’ Club at every opportunity he gets. Javier Botet will also appear in a currently undisclosed role.
What we know thus far is that the project will shoot between July 7th and September 6th in Canada. We also know that the producers are targeting an R-rating. The creative team’s intent is to stay as close to the source material as possible. We previously reported that the California Tax Credit would be utilized by the production. So, while there are plans to shoot in Canada, it is expected that at least part of the feature will lens in CA. It has been a long road to get this project ready to go before cameras but the redux is finally moving full steam ahead.
No additional details on the upcoming project are available at this time but stay tuned to the site in the coming months and we will keep you apprised as more news is announced.
