With Andres Muschietti’s new take on Stephen King’s IT in cinemas this September, interest is at a huge high right now where Pennywise and the Losers’ Club are concerned. And perfectly timed for all of this is the hotly-anticipated Pennywise: The Story of IT, a documentary that’s currently nearing the end of its crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo.
Now while a documentary based around IT would usually grab our attention regardless, this one has even more plus points on its side. Not only does Pennywise: The Story of IT feature behind the scenes footage from the beloved 1990 IT miniseries and over 30 interviews, including with the legendary Tim Curry, but Pennywise is also from the same team behind the likes of RoboDoc: The Creation of RoboCop and You’re So Cool, Brewster! The Story of Fright Night, the latter of which wowed all of us here at Moonbase Alpha when it was included on Eureka Entertainment’s recent crammed release of Fright Night earlier this year.
The official word on this crowdfunding campaign reads:
From Dead Mouse Productions Ltd and Cult Screenings UK Ltd, makers of Leviathan: The Story of Hellraiser and Hellbound: Hellraiser II, You're so cool, Brewster! The Story of Fright Night and RoboDoc: The Creation of RoboCop and John Campopiano, director/writer of Unearthed and Untold: The Path to Pet Sematary comes this brand-new documentary Pennywise: The Story of IT. A fully independent retrospective into the making of Stephen King’s IT and its cultural impact over the last 28 years. Supported by dozens of the original cast and crew including Tim Curry, Tommy Lee Wallace and Bart Mixon Pennywise is made by fans of the IT for fans of IT. The crew have already received support from over 20 of the cast and crew, including acquiring over 2 hours of never-before-seen set footage from SFX wizard Bart Mixon, as well as loads of archival and behind-the-scenes photos and there is no doubt that by the time of production many more key players will be attached to share their amazing stories about one of the most iconic movies ever-made.
The documentary is made as a labour of love by a team of IT fans and this is YOUR unique opportunity to get on board and not only be part of this amazing project BUT make it a reality.
