UPDATE: Our Pennywise has now been cast!
It was long believed that actor Will Poulter was attached to the role of Pennywise for the upcoming IT reboot, but since director Cary Fukunaga departed the project, Poulter has been uncertain about his role in the movie.
However, Bloody Disgusting reports that new actors are auditioning for the role of Pennywise and have undergone makeup tests. The only name mentioned is Kirk Acevedo, who you may have seen in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Band of Brothers and Fringe.
It seems wise to cast a slightly older actor as Pennywise, given what amazing precedent Tim Curry set in the role back in 1990. A bunch of actors are trying out for the role of Pennywise for the reboot, but Kirk Acevedo seems like a decent fit.
The IT reboot comes September 8, 2017. Who do you want as Pennywise?
