Last year, the film adaptation of It, in addition to rave reviews, also earned a huge amount at the box office, becoming the highest-grossing film based on the works of Stephen King and breaking a number of box office records. The news that the horror will receive a sequel did not surprise anyone. Now it has been confirmed that the filming of the sequel will start in the summer in Toronto, and The Hollywood Reporter has revealed the latest casting news.|
Until now, it was only known that Jessica Chastain plans to play an adult Beverly Marsh in the second part of "It". According to the source, she will be accompanied by James McAvoy ("Split") and Bill Hader ("Girl without complexes"), who was predicted to play the role of Richie Tozier. The audience's wish was eventually fulfilled, since the actor, who became famous for his comedic talent, is likely to embody the image of the grown-up joker Richie, played by Finn Wolfard in the first part. McAvoy hopes to take over from the young Jaden Liberer - the actor is in talks to play Bill Denbrough, the leader of the Losers' Club.
The work on the sequel is led by the team of the first film in the person of director Andres Muschetti and screenwriter Gary Dobermann. The second part will take place 27 years after the events of "It", when the main characters will have to return to Derry to defeat evil once and for all.
The premiere of the second "It" in USA will take place on September 5 next year.
