As Jessica Chastain begins the X-Men: Dark Phoenix reshoots, IT Chapter Two director Andy Muschietti has shared a new photo from the set of that film featuring a bloody Chastain as the adult Beverly. Filming for IT Chapter Two has been taking place in Port Hope, Ontario, and you can view a few more photos of both Chastain and the younger Beverly, Sophia Lillis, on the set from last month.
New Line Cinema‘s IT Chapter Two is director Andy Muschietti’s follow-up to 2017’s critically-acclaimed and massive worldwide box office hit IT, which grossed over $700 million globally.
Because every 27 years evil revisits the town of Derry, Maine, IT Chapter Two brings the characters—who’ve long since gone their separate ways—back together as adults, nearly three decades after the events of the first film. Bill Skarsgård returns in the seminal role of Pennywise. James McAvoy (Split, upcoming Glass) stars as Bill, Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty, Mama) as Beverly, Bill Hader (HBO’s Barry, The Skeleton Twins) as Richie, Isaiah Mustafa (TV’s Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments) as Mike, Jay Ryan (TV’s Mary Kills People) as Ben, James Ransone (HBO’s The Wire) as Eddie, and Andy Bean (Allegiant, Starz’ Power) as Stanley.
Reprising their roles as the original members of the Losers Club are Jaeden Lieberher as Bill, Wyatt Oleff as Stanley, Sophia Lillis as Beverly, Finn Wolfhard as Richie, Jeremy Ray Taylor as Ben, Chosen Jacobs as Mike, and Jack Dylan Grazer as Eddie.
Muschietti directs from a screenplay by Gary Dauberman (IT, Annabelle: Creation) based on the novel by Stephen King. Barbara Muschietti, Dan Lin and Roy Lee are producing the film. Marty Ewing, Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg are the executive producers.
Set to open in theaters September 6, 2019, IT Chapter Two is a New Line Cinema production. It will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures.
