Stephen King’s It Pisses Off Canadians!



Oh, Pennywise! You’re such a monster. However, if you ask some Toronto residents, it’s the movie production staff who are the real monsters. According to The Star, excessive film shoots at a Riverdale home are really pissing off some neighbors.

These [films] have been affecting the lives of the families in the neighborhood,” says local resident Nick Shcherban. “It looks like Universal Studios out there!

Shcherban says the film crews make excessive noise, and he has complained to local Councillor Paula Fletcher and the Toronto Film Office about what he believes are infringements of city bylaws. His concerns include disruptive noise, bright lights on set, crew members trespassing, and illegal parking.

One of Fletcher’s staff said she was out of the city and not available for comment. The city’s film commissioner Zaib Shaikh responded to queries by email.

Staff from the City’s Toronto Film, Television and Digital Media Office have met with one resident regarding their concerns and have advised them that we have been working with the production company to ensure that all public filming regulations are abided by,” wrote Shaikh, also the city’s director of entertainment industries, in an email. “We will continue to work with all concerned to ensure that this film production causes the minimum of disruption.

Careful, Nick, if you look into the Deadlights, you’ll really be driven insane!

Jaeden Lieberher, Finn Wolfhard, Nicholas Hamilton, Jack Dylan Grazer, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs, Jeremy Ray Taylor, and Sophia Lillis star with Bill Skarsgard, who portrays Pennywise. In addition, creature performer Javier Botet has signed on as The Leper, and Owen Teague plays Patrick Hocksetter, part of a group of bullies who torment The Losers’ Club.

Andy Muschietti directs from a screenplay by Gary Dauberman and Chase Palmer. Dan Lin, Roy Lee, Seth Grahame-Smith, David Katzenberg, and Barbara Muschietti produce. The story will be spread across two films.

In a small town in Maine, seven children known as The Losers’ Club come face to face with life problems, bullies, and a monster that takes the shape of a clown called Pennywise.
