Principal photography has begun on New Line Cinema’s IT Chapter Two in Toronto.
Evil revisits the town of Derry, Maine every 27 years, and IT Chapter Two brings the characters back together as adults nearly three decades after the events of the first film. James McAvoy (Split, the upcoming Glass) stars as Bill with Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty) as Beverly. The rest of the adult cast includes Bill Hader, Isaiah Mustafa, Jay Ryan, James Ransone and Andy Bean. Bill Skarsgård returns in the seminal role of Pennywise.
Reprising their roles as the original members of the Losers Club are Jaeden Lieberher, Wyatt Oleff, Sophia Lillis, Finn Wolfhard, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Chosen Jacobs and Jack Dylan Grazer.
Muschietti directs from a screenplay by Gary Dauberman based on the novel by Stephen King. Barbara Muschietti, Dan Lin and Roy Lee are producing the film.
IT Chapter Two is scheduled for release on September 6, 2019 through Warner Bros. Pictures.
