'It' Remake Is 'Absolutely Not' Behind Those Creepy Real-Life Clown Sightings

Stephen King's scared of those weird real-life clowns showing up in Southern locales, and so are the people behind the upcoming It remake. Well, they're scared that people think it's a secret viral marketing campaign, at least.

"New Line is absolutely not involved in the rash of clown sightings," the studio tells The Hollywood Reporter in a statement of stunning brevity. Couldn't they have thrown some shots at the people spinning theories? Made a good Pennywise joke?
