Chapter 2 Circles Jessica Chastain for Adult Bev

IT: Chapter 2: Jessica Chastain In Talks To Play Beverly Marsh

News. Chastain, who earned a Golden Globe nomination this year for her performance in Molly's Game, is reportedly being considered for the adult version of Beverly Marsh, according to Variety, which first revealed the news. Among the top actors fans hoped would join the sequel is Academy Award victor Jessica Chastain, who many hoped would play Beverly. Chastain previously worked with It director Andy Muschietti on the horror film Mama.

One thing we can tell you with absolute certainty is that although Andy Muschietti is yet to close his own deal for It: Chapter Two, production is expected to commence this summer, when the original Losers Club - Lillis included - will be making their return. Chastain's casting is the first major bit of news to be released about the highly anticipated sequel.

Variety's sources emphasise that negotiations are early and the script is still being developed.

Based on the Stephen King novel of the same name, several children growing up in the town of Derry, Maine face off with a killer entity that takes the shape of a clown called Pennywise as they team together to defeat it. And you know, Barbara is one of my best friends so... They're like my family. "Anything that they're doing I want to be a part of, so I hope we can make it happen".

Sources say that the script for the Muschietti-directed sequel is still being worked on, but both sides have officially begun to negotiate Chastain coming on to the project, which is set to hit theaters September 6, 2019.

It: Chapter Two is once again being penned by Gary Dauberman, who penned the first instalment as well as the likes of Annabelle, Annabelle: Creation and The Nun.
