The It reboot from this year has proven to be a massive success, even becoming the most successful R-rated horror film of all time, and now in an interview with IGN Pennywise actor Bill Skarsgård spoke about his hopes for the sequel and how he would like it to approach the backstory of Pennywise.
"The first movie worked so well at what it is trying to do, I think, and ultimately that is the kids' story, and you sort of fall in love with these kids," he said. "And the second one will be the adult story. And I think the right way to do it is to make that movie actively different. I think there might be worth exploring sort of the psychological aspects of horror, but also maybe the sort of cosmological existence of this being. What is he, and where does he come from? And, you know, it's hardly answered in the novel, either. I mean, it's very abstract."
"And I kind of like that. It could be almost a sort of serialised sort of psychedelic trip if you go into the mind of Pennywise. And if you've read the novel you know that they do actually go into his mind. Or they go into this transdimensional place, and they sort of beat him in this place. Which might be interesting, what that place would be, and what would it look like. There's opportunities, I think, and I'm excited for it."
