Jessica Chastain In Talks To Become IT Girl For Part II

She said she would when she was asked a few months back. She’s worked with director Andy Muschietti before in the film MAMA. Now talks have started to bring her to the town of Derry as the grown up Beverly. Jessica Chastain is in talks to take on the role in Part 2 of Stephen King’s IT.

Part 2 shows the kids return as adults after a childhood haunted by Pennywise. Bill Skarsgard is set to return as the evil clown. The film will be written by Gary Dauberman and Warner Bros. has set Sept.6, 2019. I think she’d make a great adult version of Beverly so let’s hope the studio can close the deal.
