Ezra Miller (The Stand, We Need to Talk About Kevin) stars as the titular speedster. The new movie will sport multiverse elements. Such as Ben Affleck’s Batman to boot.

Muschietti directs The Flash from a screenplay by Christina Hodson (Birds of Prey) based on the Flashpoint comics arc. Ron Livingston (Office Space) and Maribel Verdu will play Barry Allen’s parents. Kiersey Clemons is Iris West. Sasha Calle is Supergirl.

Andy Muschietti’s The Flash with Ezra Miller, Michael Keaton, and Ben Affleck is set to hit theaters on November 4, 2022.

The last time we saw Keaton as Batman was in director Tim Burton’s Batman Returns with Danny DeVito, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Christopher Walken.

The movie centers on the monstrous Penguin (DeVito) joining forces with wicked businessman Max Shreck (Walken) to kill the Batman (Keaton). But when Shreck’s timid assistant, Selina Kyle (Pfeiffer), finds out, and Shreck tries to kill her, she is transformed into the Catwoman. She teams up with the Penguin and Shreck to destroy Batman, but sparks fly when she confronts the caped crusader.

Stephen King Talks Inspiration for Pennywise and More About It

Posted by Steve Barton on May 1, 2017

The good folks over at The Stephen King Club have brought a couple of neat videos to light featuring Stephen King talking about IT and the genesis of the infamous Pennywise the Clown.

The first bit, recorded by Nicole Schröder in Hamburg in November 2013, features King explaining the origin of Pennywise.

I had an idea when I was in Colorado that I wanted to write a really long book that had all of the monsters in it,” said King. “I figured if people think I’m a horror writer — I never considered myself to be that myself, I’m just a writer-writer — I thought to myself, ‘I’ll get all of the monsters together as I possibly can; I’ll get the Vampire, I’ll get the Werewolf, and I’ll even get the Mummy.’ The Mummy has never really scared me because it’s like the Mummy is after us, let’s all walk. It’s not a terribly scary monster, but he had to be there because he’s one of the classics. But then I thought to myself, ‘There out to be one binding, horrible, nasty, gross, creature kind of thing that you don’t want to see, [and] it makes you scream just to see it.’ So I thought to myself, ‘What scares children more than anything else in the world?’ And the answer was ‘clowns’.

King continues, “So, I created Pennywise the Clown. Then, what happened was, ABC came along and said they wanted to make a mini-series out of it and wanted to cast Tim Curry as Pennywise. I thought it was a strange idea but it really worked and it scared a whole generation of young people and made them scared of clowns, but clowns are scary for children to start with.

The second half of the below video shows King on “The Conan O’Brien Show” circa 2005 in which he discusses the horrors of clowns!

It hits theaters on September 8th.

The behind-the-scenes creative team includes director of photography Chung-Hoon Chung (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl), production designer Claude Paré (Rise of the Planet of the Apes), editor Jason Ballantine (The Great Gatsby), and costume designer Janie Bryant (“Mad Men”).

Synopsis:
When children begin to disappear in the town of Derry, Maine, a group of young kids are faced with their biggest fears when they square off against an evil clown named Pennywise, whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries.

Here’s a New Picture of Pennywise on the Set of Stephen King’s IT

Posted by Jonathan Barkan on April 15, 2017

A new picture from the set of Stephen King’s IT has made its way online and it’s rather amusing in how it tells two very different stories in one shot. The picture shows a monitor on which you can see Pennywise looking creepy. However, behind the monitor are the a few of the actors from the Loser’s Club standing around, chatting, and eating some craft food, all behind the set of what appears to be the sewer system. So, one hand you’ve got a picture from the actual movie (if that scene makes the final cut) and on the other you’ve got behind-the-scenes gold. Man, I love movie magic!

Jaeden Lieberher, Finn Wolfhard, Nicholas Hamilton, Jack Dylan Grazer, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs, Jeremy Ray Taylor, and Sophia Lillis star with Bill Skarsgard, who portrays Pennywise. In addition, creature performer Javier Botet has signed on as The Leper, and Owen Teague plays Patrick Hocksetter, part of a group of bullies who torment The Losers’ Club.

Stephen King Responds to Clowns Claiming IT Is Bad for Business

Posted by Steve Barton on April 11, 2017

A few days we told you about a story in Mel Magazine regarding professional clowns who were really, really pissed off about the trailer for Stephen King’s IT as well as all the other recent scary depictions of the grease-painted good guys!

It’s gonna be bad for clowns,” says Guilford Adams, a 42-year-old L.A. resident who has performed as “Gilly” for 20 years.

It’s ruining our business,” adds 33-year-old Nick Kane of L.A. (clown name: “Mr. Nick”).

Well, Stephen King himself has gotten wind of their gripes, and he’s responded via Twitter. “The clowns are pissed at me. Sorry, most are great. BUT…kids have always been scared of clowns. Don’t kill the messengers for the message.

Point made.

It hits theaters on September 8th via New Line Cinema and Warner Bros.

Andy Muschietti’s new take on Stephen King’s It stars Jaeden Lieberher, Finn Wolfhard, Nicholas Hamilton, Jack Dylan Grazer, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs, Jeremy Ray Taylor, and Sophia Lillis with Bill Skarsgard as Pennywise. In addition, creature performer Javier Botet has signed on as The Leper, and Owen Teague plays Patrick Hocksetter, part of a group of bullies who torment The Losers’ Club.

The It Trailer Shattered View Records!

Posted by Jonathan Barkan on March 31, 2017

Beep beep, Richie! The hype train for this film isn’t stopping any time soon!

The recently released trailer for the upcoming adaptation of Stephen King’s It proves the interest the public has in not only this particular film but also the genre as a whole. In 24 hours, the trailer was seen more than 197 million times, with 81 million of those views coming from US Facebook alone. This number absolutely decimates the previously held record of 139 million views that was held by The Fate of the Furious. After 36 hours of being released, the trailer was seen 246 million times.

Now, whenever someone writes a dumb article about “Is Horror Dead?“, just point them to this and tell them to shut up. Us horror fans aren’t going anywhere and the genre has never been as successful as it is now.

Jaeden Lieberher, Finn Wolfhard, Nicholas Hamilton, Jack Dylan Grazer, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs, Jeremy Ray Taylor, and Sophia Lillis star with Bill Skarsgard, who portrays Pennywise. In addition, creature performer Javier Botet has signed on as The Leper, and Owen Teague plays Patrick Hocksetter, part of a group of bullies who torment The Losers’ Club.
