Could Jessica Chastain Join The Cast Of The 'It' Sequel?

Jessica Chastain Game To Play Adult Bev For New Line Horror Sequel It Chapter Two

Jessica Chastain Game To Play Adult Bev For New Line Horror Sequel It Chapter Two

One name thrown around quite a bit was Jessica Chastain, who many thought was the ideal choice to play a grown-up Beverly Marsh, portrayed as a teenager in the movie by Sophia Lillis. Could Chastain sign on the dotted line and move to Derry, Maine, to face Bill Skarsgard's malevolent entity? She was recently doing an interview with her co-star Idris Elba and she was asked about the possibility of taking on the role of Beverly in the IT sequel.

"Well, I love Andy [Muschietti} and Barbara [Muschietti]". I have worked with Andy on his first film., you know, Mama. His first film. And you know, Barbara is one of my best friends so... Chastain followed up with, "Listen, of course, I want to work... they're my friends". Chastain continued, saying that she hopes they can make it happen, calling Andy and Barbara Muschietti "family".

Of course, this is far from confirmation that this is happening, but it's clear there's interest on everyone's part for that to happen.

Jessica Chastain is keen to star in the "It" movie sequel, slated for release in September 2019.

At this point in the interview, Idris Elba also chose to chime in, saying, "Get me in!"

"Take me! I love this movie!". Unfortunately, Elba may be a bit too old at 46 to play the adult version of Mike. If cast, she'll be the first official adult Losers' Club member.

The sequel is slated for release in USA theatres September 6, 2019, two years after the first movie, which was a box-office hit, grossing US$677.5 million (RM2.86 billion) worldwide. And I think the right way to do it is to make that movie actively different.

Both Muschietti and Chastain's remarks indicate that Jessica Chastian could very well end up playing Beverly which is certainly gives us hope that we'll soon see our favorite redhead actress step into the shoes of Sophia Lillis and bring a new life to Beverly Marsh.
