‘IT’ Originally Had A More Disturbing And Difficult Ending



By now you’ve probably already seen It – considering it’s shaping up to be one of the biggest movies of all time – and so you probably know how it all ends up. But just in case you haven’t and you’re stupid then here’s a warning: this post is obviously going to contain spoilers.

The Losers Club of course ends up defeating Pennywise (at least for now, heh heh heh) but it could have played out a little bit differently than it did in the final cut of the movie as an alternate ending was filmed. Jaeden Lieberher – who plays the ‘leader’ of the Losers Club Bill Denbrough – revealed this when he was talking about his favourite scene in an interview with Variety:

I did have this scene where I climb up the tower at the end.

When I’m chasing after Georgie, I climb the tower and I’m at a one-on-one confrontation with Pennywise and then I say that I’m not afraid of him, that none of the losers are afraid of him, and that’s how we beat him.

But they took those lines and put [them] toward the end, right after our big fight.

So I had this whole thing where Bill Skarsgard is grabbing me and pushing me off the ledge, and I had to wear this harness.

That was a more difficult scene.

I mean it sounds like a nice visual of Bill climbing up the mountain of toys, but it probably makes more sense to have the losers defeat him as a collective rather than doing it like the way described above. Think they made the right decision.

That wasn’t the only scene that was deleted though – there was also a crazy disturbing flashback scene that got cut, although it might make it into the next one. Here’s hoping.
