IT: Chapter 2 begins filming

It was just the other day that we let you guys know that filming had begun on the upcoming remake of Stephen King's PET SEMATARY and it turns out another King adaptation has started filming as well. This time the flick in question is director Andres Muschietti's IT: CHAPTER 2 starring Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy, Bill Hader, James Ransone, Andy Bean, and Jay Ryan as the adult Loser's Club.

Adult Bill himself James McAvoy broke the news by posting a pic from his first day on-set over on Instagram. You can check out the post below where he talks up the film's... cheese? Whatever, guess the man likes his... wait for it... Derry products. I'm here all week.

Again you can check out his post below and then make sure to get ready for more and more STEPHEN KING'S IT news as more and more scoops are bound to be hitting our inboxes here at AITH as the production continues. Stay tuned!

And for those who may have forgotten, the original film's synopsis goes like this:

A group of young kids faces their biggest fears when they seek answers to the disappearance of children in their hometown of Derry, Maine. They square off against an evil clown named Pennywise, whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries.

The original film (and this sequel) was directed by Andrés Muschietti from a script by Gary Dauberman, based on the novel by Stephen King. The film starred Jaeden Lieberher, Sophia Lillis, Finn Wolfhard, Wyatt Oleff, Jack Dylan Grazer, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Chosen Jacobs, Nicholas Hamilton, Owen Teague, Javier Botet, Steven Williams. 

Bill Skarsgård will return as Pennywise the Dancing Clown when IT: CHAPTER 2 creeps out of the sewers and into your local multiplex September 6th, 2019
