Bill Skarsgard is set to follow his upcoming turn as Pennywise in It with another Stephen King project, with the actor signing on to appear as a series regular in Castle Rock.
The anthology series from Hulu and Bad Robot is described as “a psychological-horror drama set in the Stephen King multiverse that combines the mythological scale and intimate character storytelling of King’s best-loved works, weaving an epic saga of darkness and light, played out on a few square miles of Maine woodland.”
Variety reports that Skarsgard is set to play “a young man with an unusual legal problem”. He joins a cast that so far includes Melanie Lynskey (Togetherness), Andre Holland (Moonlight), Jane Levy (Don’t Breathe) and Sissy Spacek (Carrie).
Castle Rock is set to begin production in August and is slated to hit Hulu in 2018. Skarsgard meanwhile will be seen as Pennywise the Clown in It, which opens on September 8th.
