‘IT’ is continuing to set the Hollywood box-office ablaze. It’s rapidly approaching $220 million and continuing to set records along the way. Recently appearing on Variety’s “Playback” podcast, actor Bill Skarsgard shed some light on a cut scene from the film:

“There was a scene we shot that was a flashback from the 1600s, before Pennywise [was Pennywise]. The scene turned out really, really disturbing. And I’m not the clown. I look more like myself. It’s very disturbing, and sort of a backstory for what It is, or where Pennywise came from. That might be something worth exploring in the second one. The idea is the ‘It’ entity was dormant for thousands and thousands of years. The [flashback] scene hints on that.”

Reports suggest, with ‘IT 2’ already green-lit, we will get to see more of a back story on Pennywise the Dancing Clown. It has not been confirmed that the above scene will make it’s way into the sequel but it sounds like we can expect a potentially darker version than the one we just witnessed. Skarsgard later went on the talk more about Pennywise and what he would like to see for the clown:

“The book is very abstract and metaphysical about what it means to exist and the idea of fantasy and imagination and all of these things. I think that could be cool to explore as well. It’s like, what is Pennywise? He only exists in the imagination of children. If you don’t believe him to be real then he might not be real. There’s an interesting aspect to explore there.”
