Hi-ya, Georgie!

It's been reported that Will Poulter is in talks to play the horrifying clown known as Pennywise in the upcoming remake of Stephen King's horror classic It!

The We're the Millers star is a younger choice than the original for the role of the evil monster who lured in children disguised as a clown.

King's popular book was made into a TV miniseries in 1991, starring Tim Curry who made everyone afraid of clowns playing Pennywise.

A film adaptation was never developed due to the novel's size, but director Cary Fukunaga plans to split It into two feature films, while promising the new script will stay true to the original story.

After considering older actors, Fukunaga couldn't say no to Poulter after the 22-year-old blew the director away in his audition for the role!

We wonder if the actor blew up balloons for his audition? Either way, we're excited for one of the scariest movie villains of all time to appear on the big screen!
