We may all be anxiously awaiting for the IT sequel to start filming, but Pennywise is turning in his creepy clown outfit and red balloon for the time being as Bill Skarsgård is set to star in a new thriller titled Villains alongside It Follows star Maika Monore.
The film, which was featured on the 2016 Black List, will certainly have you wondering what it is to be a villain as a “pair of amateur criminals (Skarsgård & Monroe) break into a suburban home, only to stumble upon a young girl chained in the basement and two sadistic homeowners who will do anything to keep that secret from getting out.”
The script was written by Dan Berk and Robert Olsen and the two will be teaming up to direct the feature as well. Tim and Trevor White will be producing through their company Star Thrower, which most recently worked on Steven Spielberg’s The Post. Aaron L. Gilbert and Creative Wealth Media’s Jason Cloth are executive producing. Rick Rickertsen and Mary Solomon are co-producing.
What do you think about the film? It definitely has a really cool concept if you ask us!
Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
