“The Strain” and “True Blood” Cinematographer Joins ‘IT: Chapter 2’



As we recently learned, director Andy Muschietti is set to begin filming IT: Chapter 2 this coming July in Toronto, with Gary Dauberman currently working on the script. Jessica Chastain has been confirmed as our adult Beverly Marsh, with Bill Hader in talks to play adult Richie Tozier and James McAvoy likely playing adult Bill Denbrough.

The latest update on the hotly anticipated follow-up to last year’s monster hit, via Collider, is that Checco Varese (“The Strain,” “True Blood”) has come aboard as the sequel’s cinematographer. Chung-hoon Chung was the DP of the first film.

Next year’s movie takes place 27 years after the first installment, with flashbacks to the ’80s. As adults, the Losers’ Club will resume their battle with the evil Pennywise.

The sequel will arrive in theaters on September 6, 2019.
