"It: Chapter 2" is almost ready to head down the drain!
"It" director Andres "Andy" Muschietti has assembled his own team of Avengers, and they'll be returning for the horror sequel. "Chapter 2" is meant to pick up the story 27 years later, with new adult actors playing the older Losers Club. However, Muschietti already said the sequel would include flashbacks to the past, and that means the original stars are coming back.
On that note, Muschietti recently posted a photo with some original cast members -- Sophia Lillis, Wyatt Oleff, Finn Wolfhard, Jack Dylan Grazer, and Jackson Robert Scott. Sequel filming hasn't started yet, but it's almost time to rise-and-shine for more blood and dirt:
Last year, Muschietti said they were aiming to start prep in March 2018. It sounds like filming will actually start over the summer, so they haven't quite gotten things together yet. ("Stranger Things" Season 3 is meant to start filming right around now, so Finn Wolfhard may be going straight from the Netflix show to the movie. Or will he balance both at the same time?)
What adults will be joining the cast in "Chapter 2"?
Jessica Chastain is in talks to play the adult Beverly Marsh, but the other roles seem to be up for grabs. The young cast named their choices for older roles -- including Chris Pratt, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Chadwick Boseman, Bill Hader, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Christian Bale.
"It: Chapter 2" is scheduled to open in theaters on September 6th, 2019.
