Jessica Chastain wraps IT: Chapter Two

Last Updated on August 2, 2021

It was just yesterday we shared first-look BTS shots of Bill Skarsgard back in the clown suit again for the notorious dancing creature from beyond the stars, Pennywise in director Andres Muschietti's upcoming follow up to his hit adaptation of Stephen King's IT: CHAPTER TWO. 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.

And today we have word via Muschietti over on Instagram that filming has officially wrapped on adult Beverly Marsh, Jessica Chastain. Muschietti and Chastain are old friends by this point in time considering Chastain took the lead role in Muschietti's first film MAMA. Good to see them working together again!

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.
