Nearly three decades before making his way to the big screen and shattering box office records, Pennywise terrorized the town of Derry in a made for television mini-series adaptation of Stephen King’s IT, and now the upcoming documentary Pennywise: The Story of IT will dive into the clown that terrified a generation.
The team behind the film updated today, "Over the last year we’ve been building the script for the main documentary plus a variety of bonus feature material. Currently we’re working on the full rough cut of the documentary and are on track with our original post-production schedule. With hours and hours of interview and set footage + hundreds of behind-the-scenes photos, this documentary has been an enormous lift for our entire team. But, ultimately, we know the wait will be worth it and we’re so grateful for everyone’s continued support.”

From the makers of You're So Cool Brewster: The Story of Fright Night and Unearthed & Untold: The Path to Pet Sematary, the film features interviews with Tim Curry, Seth Green, Richard Thomas, Emily Perkins, Bart Mixon, and many more.
The fan funded documentary from director Chris Griffiths will “tell a story heard by few and showcase a wealth of behind-the-scenes footage and photos seen by even fewer.”
