6-Minute Extended Trailer for PENNYWISE: THE STORY OF IT

It’s a happy Friday for horror fans indeed! The folks at Dead Mouse Productions have just released a meaty six-minute trailer for their upcoming documentary Pennywise: The Story of IT, and we’re all floating!

It’s almost like a short documentary of 1990’s IT miniseries already, containing interviews with the director (Tommy Lee Wallace), key cast members (including Tim Curry, who made Pennywise iconic), FX artists, and the project’s composer. It ever serves as a touching remembrance of John Ritter who played the adult version of Ben Hanscom.

Check out the trailer at the top of the article and the synopsis below. We don’t have an exact release date yet but we’ll keep you posted.

From Dead Mouse Productions Ltd and Cult Screenings UK Ltd, makers of Leviathan: The Story of Hellraiser and Hellbound: Hellraiser II, You’re so cool, Brewster! The Story of Fright Night, and RoboDoc: The Creation of RoboCop and John Campopiano, director/writer of Unearthed and Untold: The Path to Pet Sematary comes this brand-new documentary Pennywise: The Story of IT.

A fully independent retrospective into the making of Stephen King’s IT and its cultural impact over the last 28 years. Supported by dozens of the original cast and crew including Tim Curry, Tommy Lee Wallace, and Bart Mixon Pennywise is made by fans of the IT for fans of IT. The crew have already received support from over 20 of the cast and crew, including acquiring over 2 hours of never-before-seen set footage from SFX wizard Bart Mixon, as well as loads of archival and behind-the-scenes photos and there is no doubt that by the time of production many more key players will be attached to share their amazing stories about one of the most iconic movies ever made.
