Sure, we still have over a year before we get to hang out with Pennywise the Clown once again, but that doesn’t mean it’s too soon to talk about casting! News about IT: Part 2 began circulating over the past two days as talk of who would star as the adult version of Beverly came up. The consensus? Jessica Chastain! What a great fit.
According to Variety:
“Chapter Two” will follow the last half of the novel, when the characters return to their hometown years later as adults to face Pennywise once again. Chastain would be the first big star attached to the sequel, though the Muschiettis have said that they would hope to bring back the original young stars for flashback scenes.
Wow, when I look at the pictures side by side, I am 100% on board with this. Let’s hope they seal the deal. As someone who greatly enjoyed the first part of the movie, I can’t wait to see the second. IT: Part 2 will release on September 6, 2019.
