As soon as it was revealed during the end credits of 2017’s It that the film was only the first installment and a sequel was on the way, people began speculating on who may be portraying the adult versions of the Losers Club. We now have confirmation that one of the roles has been cast, Jessica Chastain is in talks to play Beverly in It: Chapter Two.
The film’s director Andy Muschietti expressed interest in Chastain playing Beverly as far back as last year:
“Jessi is an amazing actress and very good friend and I would love her to play Beverly.”
Muschetti directed Chastain in the 2008 short film Mama and that led many to make the connection that she could take on the role of Beverly in the It sequel.
This story is still developing……
It: Chapter 2 is set to release September 6, 2019
