New IT Story Details and Terrifying Concept Art!
As Stephen King‘s classic clown horror story It prepares to come back to theaters (after a pretty popular first adaptation several decades ago), fans of the master of horror have more information of what they can expect from the picture.
The key plot point that has emerged is that the main character, Bill Denbrough, is now on a mission to find his disappeared brother after the kid vanishes following an encounter with Pennywise The Clown. No longer is this simply a revenge story but a rescue quest that pits Bill and his band of ‘Losers’ against a level of evil they could not quite imagine. Lurking beneath this idyllic Maine town is a danger that they may wish they had not sought out in the first place.
Director Andres Muschietti Alsp teased the movie’s climax, noting:
“The final confrontation happens in the lair where Pennywise lives, a big cistern, a circular space that resembles a cooling tower.”
While King’s novels have had a mixed history of success when it comes to the silver screen (though Misery has become a cult classic and even the much-maligned The Myst is being given a second look), the future looks at least intriguing with the release of The Dark Tower next month and It in September.
Check out some of the newly released concept art, which EW first reported, showing Bill and the kids as they enter into the swampy, hair-raising final confrontation.
