"It" film co-screenwriter to speak at Wells College

One of the men responsible for a clown terrorizing a nation is heading to Wells College.

Screenwriter Chase Palmer, whose recent credits includes the recent film adaptation of Stephen King's "It," will be speaking at the Aurora college at 7 p.m. Wednesday Sept. 20. The free talk will be held at the de Witt Lecture Hall (106), Zabriskie Hall.

Palmer is listed as one of the primary writers of the box-office smash, though he co-wrote an earlier version of the script with "Beasts of No Nation" filmmaker Cary Fukunaga.

Also a director, Palmer's other work includes the short films "Shock and Awe" and "Neo-Noir," which were shown at venues like the Sundance Film Festival and the Los Angeles Film Festival.
