After months of speculation, Jessica Chastain is officially in talks to helm the role of Beverly in Stephen King’s IT Chapter 2.
In a report by Variety, Chastain is in negotiations but is yet to be officially confirmed for the role. She has always been the front-runner since she’s worked with director Andy Muschietti in past films such as MAMA. Muschietti has also expressed interest in working with Chastain again with a sequel to IT.
Another actor that could possibly play an older Beverly would be Amy Adams. In fact, in the first film young Beverly was referred to as Lois Lane at one point. Adams, in my opinion, resembles Sophia Lillis who played young Beverly a bit more than Chastain.
Both Amy Adams or Jessica Chastain Would make great choices for Stephen King’s It chapter 2 that is set to be released in theaters on Sept. 6, 2019.
It Chapter 2 takes place 27 years after the events of the first film. Pennywise returns to terrorize Derry and the kids return to battle him yet once again. But this time, our heroes are no longer pre-teens but in their 40s. Rumor also has it that the original cast will return via flashback scenes.
