We’re going to share some interesting secrets you didn’t know! Behind the scenes details, Andy Muschietti’s obsessions as well as the famous face hidden behind “It”.
“Because there is something in the core of this monster that we want to capture Its ability, so we do different things and different behaviors and different takes that might amount to something unique when we put the scene together,” Muschietti said.
1. What a talent Bill!
Director Andy Muschieti wanted Bill Skarsgard (Pennywise) to be cross-eyed in some parts of the movie.
Surprisingly, the actor showed he could really cross his eyes in real life which made the production save a lot of money.

Muschieti, organized a bike camp to teach his leading actors how to ride.
He said it was the best way to build trust between them.
3. “In one of the scenes one of them was about to vomit” - Andy declared.
Bill Skarsgard was completely isolated the first part of the shooting. The director wanted the children of the cast to be really scared, so he had purposefully keep Skarsgard separate from “The Losers Club” until after their first on-camera encounter.
