As you’re all probably aware at this point, production on director Andy Muschietti’s upcoming film adaptation of Stephen King’s It is currently underway up in Oshawa, Ontario, and promotion for the new take on the beloved story has been steadily increasing more and more over the past several months. Thanks to some new images of Pennywise The Clown recently as well, it looks like Muschietti is going to be at the very least, bringing over the same visual sensibilities from his previous film, Mama, to the new adaptation… for better or worse.
Birth.Movies.Death. “friend-of-a-friend” Angelica Juanita recently sent the site some new set photos from the film as well, showing off for the very first time, the new film’s take on the iconic house at 29 Neibolt Street from King’s original novel.
Suffice it to say, we’d try and avoid going down this street if this house were there as much as freaking possible when we were kids (or even now, really).
You can find more of the images by clicking on BMD’s link above, but it looks like Muschietti is going to be bringing a much more apparently twisted and almost gothic look to the new film, and whether or not that ends up vibing well with King’s material is be a mystery I don’t think will actually be solved until we’re all sitting in the theatres around this time next year.
In terms of a book-to-screen adaptation of the House at 29 Neibolt Street though, we’d say this is pretty spot on.
The It remake is set to hit theatres on September 8th, 2017.
