Owen Teague Joins “IT” Adaptation

Owen Teague (“Bloodline”) has joined the cast of the two-part film adaptation of “Stephen King’s IT” at New Line Cinema.

The story follows a group of kids called the Losers Club who defeat a creature that has been killing children. Years later, the creature returns, and the former club members, now adults, have to band together again even though they have no memory of the first battle.

Teague will play Patrick Hocksetter, part of a group of bullies who torment the young heroes – a psychopath who keeps a refrigerator full of animals that he’s killed. He joins a cast that includes Jaeden Lieberher, Finn Wolfhard, Jack Dylan Grazer, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs and Jeremy Ray Taylor as the Losers Club kids and Bill Skarsgard as demonic clown Pennywise.

Andy Muschietti (“Mama”) is helming the project which begins shooting July in Toronto. Dan Lin, Roy Lee, Seth Grahame-Smith, David Katzenberg and Barbara Muschietti are producing.
