"No matter where you go, there you are."


James McAvoy and Bill Hader may join Jessica Chastain in It: Chapter 2


Jessica Chastain has signed on to play the older Beverly (young Bev was played by Sophia Lillis in the first film) in It: Chapter 2 – I still think Amy Adams would have been the better choice, purely as she looks so much like a grown-up Sophia Lillis – and now a couple of actors are in talks to join Chastain as grown-up members of the Loser’s Club.

Variety has the news that James McAvoy is in talks for the role of Bill, who was played by Jaeden Lieberher in the first film, while Bill Hader is in talks for the role of Richie, which was played by Finn Wolfhard in the last film.

Both McAvoy are great choices for the roles so it all depends if the deal goes through.

Director Andy Muschietti is back to direct, with Gary Dauberman writing the script.

Variety does stress that negotiations are early and that the script is still being worked on. Bill Skarsgard is also expected to return as Pennywise.

The sequel currently has a release date on 6th September 2019, with production expected to start this summer.
