It Director Andy Muschietti Returns To Helm The New Film
Warner Bros. has released the first cast photo for the follow-up to last year’s blockbuster horror film, It, to celebrate the start of filming.
The sequel, It: Chapter Two, follows the adult versions of the Losers’ Club seen in the first film, who were terrorized by the murderous clown Pennywise in the small town of Derry.
We learned in It that evil revisits the town of Derry, Maine, every 27 years. So Chapter Two brings the characters — who’ve long since gone their separate ways —back together as adults, nearly three decades after the terrifying events of their childhood.
Naturally, this means the terrifying clown Pennywise (Bill Skarsgård) is back. James McAvoy stars as grown-up Bill, Jessica Chastain as Beverly, Bill Hader as Richie, Isaiah Mustafa as Mike, Jay Ryan as Ben, James Ransone as Eddie, and Andy Bean as Stanley who form the Adult Losers Club.
The movie’s official Twitter tweeted the photo on Monday with the caption “Back to Derry with these Losers.”
From left to right, the photo features Chastain (who plays an adult Beverly), McAvoy (Bill), Mustafa (Mike), Ryan (Ben), Ransone (Eddie), Hader (Richie), and Bean (Stanley).
It: Chapter Two comes to theatres September 6, 2019.
