Jessica Chastain is in talks to star in part two of New Line’s adaptation of Stephen King’s It.
The second installment focuses on the adult versions of the characters subjected to the terror of demon clown Pennywise and Chastain will play the grown-up version of Beverly, the girl in the misfit group. Sophia Lillis played the character in last year’s movie, which became a surprise phenomenon.
Gary Dauberman is in the midst of writing the script and Andy Muschietti is returning as director.
Bill Skarsgård will return as Pennywise.
It: Part 2 will be released Sept. 6, 2019.
