Great news for both Poulter and Stephen King fans!
British actor Will Poulter is reported to be in line to play evil monster Pennywise in the upcoming film remake of Stephen King’s It.
At only 22, Poulter is thought to be ready to take on the role following his turn in Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s new film The Revenant, which sees him play one of the robbers who leaves Leonardo DiCaprio’s character dead after he is mauled by a bear.
Sources have told film industry title Variety that Poulter is “more than ready” for a villainous lead.
Stephen King’s horror novel was adapted into a TV series starring John Ritter and Tim Curry in 1991.
