IT tells the story of seven adults who return to their hometown of Derry, Maine to confront a nightmare they had first stumbled upon as teenagers… An evil without a name… IT.
However, the movie released last September told only the half of the story, focusing on the protagonists as children. The concluding part jumps ahead 27 years and tells the adults’ story.
Jessica Chastain (Molly’s Game), James McAvoy (State Of Play), Bill Hader (Barry), and Isaiah Mustafa (Shadowhunters) are now confirmed to play the adult incarnations of Beverly, Bill, Richie, and Mike respectively.
IT Chapter 2 begins filming this July in Toronto and is slated for a theatrical release on 6th September 2019.
