It Director Andy Muschietti Teases Trailer Release Date?
Andy Muschietti, the director of the first part of Stephen King’s It, has taken to Instagram with a cryptic photograph that simply shows a balloon with the number “6” on it. Many are speculating, and I’m personally convinced of this, that this is a countdown to the release of the trailer that we saw at SXSW. Adding fuel to the fire is the fact that producer Barbara Muschietti posted a photo of Wyatt Oleff and Jack Dylan Grazer with the caption, “What is 22 + 7?” If all the signs are correct, March 29th will see the first official footage from the film, including the terrifying debut of Bill Skarsgard’s Pennywise.
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.
