'IT: Chapter 2': Jessica Chastain In Talks To Star
Jessica Chastain is in talks to join the Losers Club. Here are all the details.
It’s the dream casting that seems to be creeping ever closer to reality. Late last year, we reported that Jessica Chastain had expressed an interest in playing the adult version of Beverly in the sequel to IT, and now it seems that the actress is in official talks to take on the role.
Sophia Lillis, the actor who plays the younger version of Bev, namechecked Chastain as the actress she’d most like to see play her adult counterpart, and it looks like she might be about to get her wish. Nothing has been confirmed just yet, although we’d expect to hear casting announcements soon, given the project is due to begin production this summer.
HIT PLAY TO SEE THE LOSERS CLUB PLAY GUESS THE UK SLANG!
We already know that Bill Skarsgard will be back to reprise his role as Pennywise, while director Andy Muschietti will step behind the camera again for the sequel. Set 27 years after the events of the first film, the second instalment will see the Loser’s Club reconvene for one more showdown with the grinning clown.
IT: Chapter 2 will open in the UK on 6 September 2019.
