IT Actor Hopes To ‘Go Into the Mind of Pennywise In Part 2

Following the temporary defeat of Pennywise by the Losers club in the recently released IT movie, now actor Bill Skarsgård is looking to go into the clown’s mind in IT: Chapter 2. In a recent interview with IGN at New York Comic Con, Skarsgård corroborated on what he hopes for in IT part 2 he said:

“The first movie worked so well at what it is trying to do, I think, and ultimately that is the kids’ story, 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. 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?”

He added:

“And, you know, it’s hardly answered in the novel, either. I mean, it’s very abstract. And I kind of like that. IT could be almost a sort of [serialized] 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.”
