If you’re familiar with IT you know that in the book the kids come back to town as adults to once again face Pennywise, and with that information known fans have been speculating who should play the adult versions of the kids and one constant name that’s been showing up is Jessica Chastain.

Well according to a report from Variety it appears fans will get their wish as Jessica Chastain is in talks to star in the sequel. If a deal is finalized she will be playing an adult Beverly, who’s younger version was portrayed by Sophia Lillis in last summers horror hit and was the highest grossing movie of the fall.

Shooting for IT 2 is scheduled for this summer so hopefully, we’ll have confirmation of the final cast soon. Other names being thrown around are Adam Scott as Eddie Kaspbrak, Patrick Wilson as Bill Denbrough, Chris Pratt as Ben Hanscom (though with his current filming schedule we’re not sure that’s likely), Mark Duplass as Richie Tozier, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Stanely Uris, and Chiwetel Ejiofor as Mike Hanlon. All this was put together by Deviant Art user NetoRiberiro89 in a series of character posters he did feature The Losers Club.

 The script for part 2 is being worked on by Gary Dauberman, who co-wrote the original IT with Chase Palmer and Cary Fukunaga, who at one point was attached to direct both movies.


The release date for IT 2, is slated for September 6, 2019, and currently has no other competition lined up with it so given the reception of the first movie it’s expected that IT 2 will also be a box office hit meaning that other studios may very well avoid competing with IT 2 altogether. Jessica Chastain is coming fresh of her nominations for Molly’s Game and she will again be seen in the next X-Men Movie, X-Men: Dark Phoenix.
