Stephen King’s film “It” is getting a remake. The new version of the film is due out September 2017. Bill Skarsgard will portray the creepiest clown ever “Pennywise”. Tim Curry brought this character to life in the original film. Handsome Bill won’t be showing his great looks in the film for this role. Here is the image of Bill as Pennywise:
A new trailer for Allegiant has been released featuring Bill Skarsgard, who makes his series debut in this, the third Divergent movie. Alexander’s War On Everyone co-star Theo James plays one of the lead roles.
The third installment of the blockbuster Divergent series franchise, ALLEGIANT takes Tris [Shailene Woodley] and Four [Theo James] into a new world, far more dangerous than ever before.
After the earth-shattering revelations of INSURGENT, Tris must escape with Four and go beyond the wall enclosing Chicago. For the first time ever, they will leave the only city and family they have ever known. Once outside, old discoveries are quickly rendered meaningless with the revelation of shocking new truths. Tris and Four must quickly decide who they can trust as a ruthless battle ignites beyond the walls of Chicago which threatens all of humanity. In order to survive, Tris will be forced to make impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice and love.
The 10-part third and final season of Bill Skarsgard’s supernatural show Hemlock Grove is now streaming on Netflix. Tune in now to find out how the story ends for Roman Godfrey and Peter Rumancek.
We do like to see a Skarsgard in a regular TV show, and Alexander’s father Stellan recently joined his sons on the small screen with the lead role in the BBC drama River. It’s already begun to air in the UK (and seems to be getting pretty good feedback so far), and now Netflix have acquired the show for international distribution. River will be available on Netflix from November 18 (except in the UK where it’s on BBC right now).
And don’t forget that the third and final season of Hemlock Grove starrring Bill Skarsgard will begin on Netlfix this Friday – October 23.
According to The Wrap Bill Skarsgard is currently in negotiations to join the cast of the latest Divergent movie, titled Allegiant Part 1. The first 2 films in the franchise each took over $250m at the worldwide box office, and star Shailene Woodley and Theo James (who is coincidentally currently filming War On Everyone with Alexander Skarsgard).

A little belated, but we hope Alexander Skarsgard fans had a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
2015 will be a strange year in the fandom, our first year here without Alexander’s regular TV show to look forward to over the summer months. We already miss Eric Northman desperately but hopefully there will be announcements about exciting new projects to come over the months ahead. Alexander’s new movie “Diary of a Teenage Girl” premiers at The Sundance Film Festival later this month, and we will be bringing you all the news around that. We still await any release details for “Hidden”, and hopefully later in the year we will start to see some publicity begin for “Tarzan The Untamed” (2016 release).
The Wrap has reported that Bill Skarsgard has been cast to star in Alison Eastwood’s new directorial project Battlecreek (a love story).
Bill Skarsgard (“Hemlock Grove”), Claire van der Boom (“Ruth & Alex”) and Paula Malcomson (“Ray Donovan”) are set to star in Alison Eastwood’s sophomore feature “Battlecreek,” TheWrap has learned.
Connie Hoy is producing under her Maindiner Entertainment banner along with Eastwood, who has recruited her father Clint Eastwood’s long-time editor Gary Roach for the indie project.
Red River Studios is financing the film, which will be executive produced by Red River’s Michael G. Wallace. Production starts later this month in Mississippi.
Written by Anthea Anka, the daughter of Paul Anka, “Battlecreek” is a love story about reconciling the past and finding your future.

Noomi Rapace and Bill Skarsgard are up for Swedish version of the Oscars awards, the Guldbagge. Bill’s portrayal of an Asperger’s Syndrome sufferer in the film “Simple Simon” has earned him the nomination.
Alexander fans may recall this image above of his performance at the 2/13/2003 Guldbagge Awards ceremony. I just hope that Bill is a bit happier in his appearance. But I can’t blame Alexander that costume does not appear to be very comfortable. The rest of the images from that Guldbagge are below.
