Filming on New Line's feature film adaptation of Stephen King's IT began late last month in Toronto, Canada; however, production has now headed to Oshawa, a small city in Ontario. There, a house that appears to be run-down and abandoned was constructed over several weeks on a vacant lot on the southeast corner of Eulalie Avenue and James Street.
What is it? It's 29 Neibolt Street! And in the set videos below, you can see two key scenes from the 1986 horror novel come to life. The first video shows The Leper (played by Javier Botet), one of the sinister forms the shape-shifting IT takes, slowly approaching a young Eddie Kaspbrak. The other two videos show the scene in which most of The Losers' Club are parked in front of the house while Bill Denbrough, the leader of the group, rides his bike towards them. After a quick chit-chat, The Losers' Club bravely walks to the front door of the dilapidated house to confront IT.
Our boy @upreelAdam did some behind the scenes reporting today on the set of #ItMovie looks like he caught The Leper chasing down Eddie!!!
