Principal photography has begun on New Line Cinema’s IT CHAPTER TWO, director Andy Muschietti’s follow-up to 2017’s critically acclaimed and massive worldwide box office hit IT, which grossed over $700 million globally. Both redefining and transcending the genre, IT became part of the cultural zeitgeist as well as the highest-grossing horror film of all time.
Because every 27 years evil revisits the town of Derry, Maine, IT CHAPTER TWO brings the characters—who’ve long since gone their separate ways—back together as adults, nearly three decades after the events of the first film. Bill Skarsgård returns in the seminal role of Pennywise. James McAvoy (Split, upcoming Glass) stars as Bill, Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty, Mama) as Beverly, Bill Hader (HBO’s Barry, The Skeleton Twins) as Richie, Isaiah Mustafa (TV’s Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments) as Mike, Jay Ryan (TV’s Mary Kills People) as Ben, James Ransone (HBO’s The Wire) as Eddie, and Andy Bean (Allegiant, Starz’s Power) as Stanley.
Reprising their roles as the original members of the Losers Club are Jaeden Lieberher as Bill, Wyatt Oleff as Stanley, Sophia Lillis as Beverly, Finn Wolfhard as Richie, Jeremy Ray Taylor as Ben, Chosen Jacobs as Mike, and Jack Dylan Grazer as Eddie.
Muschietti directs from a screenplay by Gary Dauberman (IT, Annabelle: Creation) based on the novel by Stephen King. Barbara Muschietti, Dan Lin, and Roy Lee are producing the film. Marty Ewing, Seth Grahame-Smith, and David Katzenberg are the executive producers.
The behind-the-scenes creative team includes director of photography Checco Varese (The 33), Oscar-winning production designer Paul D. Austerberry (The Shape of Water), editor Jason Ballantine (IT, Mad Max: Fury Road), and Oscar-nominated costume designer Luis Sequeira (The Shape of Water, Mama).
Production will take place in Toronto, Canada.
Set to open in theaters September 6, 2019, IT CHAPTER TWO is a New Line Cinema production. It will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
