Director Andrés Muschietti will unleash the evil clown Pennywise on a new generation when his adaptation of Stephen King’s IT hits theaters in September 2017. But folks in Green Bay, Wisconsin seem to be living a real-life horror movie nightmare, as a “creepy” clown has been stopped walking dark streets at night.
A mysterious clown that seemingly came out of someone’s nightmares has been spotted in Green Bay, according to photos going around social media. A Facebook page called “Gags – The Green Bay Clown” claims the first sighting happened Aug. 1 at 2 a.m. This clown looks more Pennywise than Ronald McDonald. His outfit appears shabby and he’s carrying black balloons. One Facebook tipster says it’s the work of a director who is making a short horror film.
One comment on the Facebook page claims Gag’s is truly nefarious; Carly Geurts writes: “He ran after my friend, it looked like he wanted to kill him.”
We’ll let you know as additional details emerge.
In IT: In a small town in Maine, seven children known as The Losers Club come face to face with life problems, bullies and a monster that takes the shape of a clown called Pennywise.
