First Look: Pennywise returns on-set of IT: Chapter Two

A few weeks back we shared with you guys your first look at Jessica Chastain and Sophia Lillis hanging out on-set of director Andres Muschietti's upcoming follow-up to his hit adaptation of Stephen King's IT. If you missed those pics, you can check them out again over HERE. In that post I said that I'm thinking we're going to keep all these IT: CHAPTER TWO BTS shots to a minimum to not tease you guys with spoilers. 

But that all flies out the window today as we finally have some BTS shots of Bill Skarsgard back in the clown suit again for the notorious dancing creature from beyond the stars, Pennywise. The scene being filmed looks to be the infamous Paul Bunyan scene from King's novel in which Pennywise conjures the Bunyan statue to life and uses it to terrorize adult Richie, played by Bill Hader.

You can check out the spoiler-ish pics below and then make sure to let us know what you think. Here's the new film's semi-synopsis:

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, GLASS) stars as Bill, Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain (CRIMSON PEAK, MAMA) as Beverly, Bill Hader (BARRY, THE SKELETON TWINS) as Richie, Isaiah Mustafa (SHADOWRUNNER: THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS) as Mike, Jay Ryan (MARY KILLS PEOPLE) as Ben, James Ransone (SINISTER, SINISTER 2) as Eddie, and Andy Bean (ALLEGIANT) 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. The behind-the-scenes creative team includes director of photography Checco Varese (THE 33), Oscar-winning production designer Paul D. Austerberry (THE SHAPE OF WATER), editor Jason Ballantine (IT, MAD MAX: FURY ROAD), and Oscar-nominated costume designer Luis Sequeira (THE SHAPE OF WATER, MAMA).

Production is currently taking place in Toronto, Canada. IT CHAPTER TWO is a New Line Cinema production. It will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures on September 6, 2019.
