We had been told that filming was kicking off sometime this summer on Andy Muschietti’s IT: Chapter 2, and it looks like we’re now underway. Star James McAvoy, who’s playing the adult version of Bill Denbrough in the hotly-anticipated sequel, just shared a photo on Instagram that confirms filming started *yesterday*!
We expect more from-the-set updates in the coming weeks…
The cast includes Jessica Chastain as Beverly, Bill Hader as Richie, James McAvoy as Bill, James Ransone as Eddie, Andy Bean as Stanley, Isaiah Mustafa as Mike and Jay Ryan as Ben. Bill Skarsgård returns as Pennywise.
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.
Gary Dauberman wrote the script.
The sequel will arrive in theaters on September 6, 2019.
