IT: CHAPTER 2 Wraps Production and We Have a Cast Photo and a Teaser Poster
Director Andy Muschietti has wrapped production on IT: Chapter 2! To celebrate the occasion we’ve got a photo featuring the most of the young cast of the film that make up the Losers Club as well as a teaser poster.
Jaeden Lieberher, Sophia Lillis, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Finn Wolfhard, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs, and Jack Dylan Grazer all returned to reprise their roles in flashback scenes that will be included in the film.
The poster just simply gives us the logo and title of the film with the released date of September 6th, 2019. I can’t wait to see some actual footage from this movie, though! IT: Chapter 2 is one of my most anticipated films of 2019.
The sequel is set 27 years after the Losers Club defeated Pennywise The Clown when they were kids. As they've grown up, they've forgotten about what had happened. When bad things start to happen in Derry again and kids begin to go missing, Mike Hanlon, who stayed behind in Derry to keep watch over the town, calls up his old friends and reminds them of the promise they made to come back and stop it if it ever came back.
The movie is shooting in Toronto and the cast also includes Jessica Chastain as Beverly, James McAvoy as Bill, Bill Hader as Richie, Jay Ryan (Beauty and the Beast) as Ben, James Ransone (Generation Kill) as Eddie, with Andy Bean (Here and Now) as Stanley Uris, and Isaiah Mustafa as Mike.
It has previously been revealed that Chapter 2 will include more of the interdimensional turtle, which was teased in the first film a few times. It will also have a much darker tone to it, and it has been said that Mike Hanlon's character will be drastically changed, as he will be a junkie. You can read more about that here.
The sequel will also most likely explore Pennywise the Clown a little more. We've heard that the sequel may include elements from Pennywise's history in Derry such as the story behind The Black Spot and there was a deleted scene from the first film that was revealed that included Pennywise eating a baby. That could be included in the sequel as well if they really do plan on giving us a history of the monster. Then Bill Skarsgard hopes that it will explore the twisted mind of Pennywise.
The writer of the film,Gary Dauberman, also previously teased a heartbreaking ending for the movie.
