Clint Bowers: Who Is He? First “Welcome to Derry” Behind-The-Scenes Image by Andy Muschietti
The HBO Max series “Welcome to Derry,” an official prequel to the two Andy Muschietti IT movies based on the works of Stephen King, began filming this month. Muschietti published a first-look behind-the-scenes picture from the set on Instagram over the weekend.
The image, which you can view below, shows us Clint Bowers’ office door. Clint is a new member of the Bowers family, whom we’ll get to know in “Welcome to Derry.”
We’ve seen Butch Bowers, Henry’s father, and Connor Bowers, Henry’s cousin, in Muschietti’s film adaptations of Stephen King’s classic horror story. Henry Bowers was of course the leader of the Bowers Gang who terrorized the Losers’ Club. It makes sense that another family member served as the Chief of Police a few years earlier since Butch Bowers was a police officer.
But who is Clint Bowers really? Soon, we’ll learn more.
The Pennywise prequel project from Warner Bros. Television has Andy Muschietti, Barbara Muschietti, and Jason Fuchs on board, with Muschietti slated to direct multiple episodes.
Starring are Stephen Rider (Daredevil), Taylour Paige (Zola), Jovan Adepo (Watchmen), Chris Chalk (Perry Mason), Madeleine Stowe (Revenge), James Remar (Oppenheimer), and Taylour Paige (Zola).
The 2017 movie It: Part One, which is based on the Stephen King horror novel, will take place in the 1960s, according to a 2017 Variety article. Also allegedly included in the tale is Pennywise the Clown’s backstory.
The co-showrunners of the prequel series will be Brad Caleb Kane (“Moonhaven,” “Black Sails,” “Fringe”) and Jason Fuchs (“Wonder Woman,” Ice Age: Continental Drift”).
Stephen King’s huge book, which was initially published in 1986, was of course first adapted into a miniseries in 1990, starring Tim Curry in the part that would subsequently be performed by Bill Skarsgård in the films.
The story takes place in the town of Derry, Maine, where the Losers’ Club, a group of friends, fights Pennywise the deadly clown twice: first when they are children and again when they are adults, 27 years later.
