It's been a long and winding road for the upcoming big screen adaptation of Stephen King's horror classic "It," but at long last, the flick has finally finished production. To celebrate, naturally, filmmakers couldn't help but share another super creepy image featuring everyone's favorite demented clown, Pennywise.
Screenwriter and producer Barbara Muschietti -- the sister of director Andres Muschietti, and a producer on "It" -- revealed that the production has wrapped with a post on Instagram, thanking the cast and crew for their hard work, and adding a special shout-out to King "for giving us this tale." Muschietti also took the opportunity to share a snap featuring what looks like a jack in the box version of Pennywise, and it's just as horrifying as you'd imagine such a demented toy to be.
That shudder-inducing image is in keeping with what we've seen of Pennywise so far, though, so at least we know that filmmakers are consistent with their vision for the iconic character, played in this new version by actor Bill Skarsgard. It remains to be seen whether or not this creepy toy will pop up in the flick, but it will almost certainly be popping up in our nightmares later.
As mentioned above, the journey to the big screen has been an arduous one for "It," with disagreements over budget, a departing director, a delayed release date, and the loss of a key actor all plaguing the production. But now that filming has officially wrapped, it looks like it's smooth sailing here on out for the horror flick.
"It" will be split into two parts, with the first set to hit theaters on September 8, 2017.
