Un giovane regista indipendente di Boston, insieme al suo team, ha lanciato una campagna di raccolta fondi per realizzare il primo documentario sulla miniserie degli anni ’90 “IT” intitolato “Pennywise: The story of It”. Il progetto è davvero molto interessante, il team ha confermato che prenderanno parte al documentario parecchi membri del cast e dell’equipe, la maggior parte dei quali non hanno mai rilasciato interviste pubbliche. Ovviamente è confermata anche la presenza di Tim Curry, colui che ha reso un innocuo clown l’incubo di tutti noi. Vi lascio il comunicato ufficiale:
Pennywise: The Story of IT isn’t just about the making of the 1990 miniseries or even the phenomenon of coulrophobia. It’s also about Tim Curry and his legendary performance as Pennywise the Clown. And despite Tim’s illustrious career and portrayal of many iconic characters in film and television, there are very few firsthand recollections of what those experiences were like for him as an actor. This makes his participation in our documentary rare and very special and we need your support to help us bring this film to life and to give Tim a stage to share his story with all the world.
Our team has also made contact with and confirmed participation from nearly over two dozen cast and crew members from the original miniseries, most of whom have never been publicly interviewed about IT before. The followers and fans of the original film have been exposed to very little behind-the-scenes content and have heard few stories from other cast and crew members. Our team is positioned to finally change that but we need the support of the fans to help us cross the finish line and make a film that–we as fans, too!–have been aching to see for decades.
