One of the most impressive genre efforts of recent years was Andy Muschietti’s IT. As the more adult-focussed follow-up continues to develop, the sequel is zeroing in on adding some pretty big names to its ranks.
Having already confirmed Jessica Chastain to be playing the adult version of Beverly, now comes word that James McAvoy and Bill Hader are in talks to join what’s currently been referred to as IT: Chapter 2.
As per Variety, Split’s McAvoy is being lined up to play the adult version of Jaeden Lieberher’s Bill, while Hader is in talks to play the adult take on Finn Wolfhard’s Richie. Bill Skarsgard is expected to be back as the eerie Pennywise.
To once more be directed by Andy Muschietti, this hotly anticipated IT follow-up is booked in for a September 6th, 2019 release.
