Jessica Chastain Officially in Talks for 'It' Sequel

Jessica Chastain is indeed in early negotiations to join the sequel to It, the New Line horror pic based on Stephen King's book that last fall dominated the marketplace and grossed an outsized $700 million at the global box office, becoming the highest-grossing horror film of all time.

The sequel to the 2017 horror smash will follow the structure of the 1990 miniseries, picking up the story of the Losers Club vs. Pennywise the Clown with the grown up losers reuniting as adults to put the cosmic horror to pasture once and for all.

Andy Muschietti is expected to return to the director's chair, but he has yet to close his deal. Chastain is the first piece of casting to be announced for the sequel outside of the returning child actors and Bill Skarsgard, who will reprise his role as Pennywise. This, coupled with the fact that Chastain and Muschietti have collaborated in the past (see: Mama) has ensured the actress became the hot-tipped favorite to land the gig - presumably at the expense of Amy Adams, who was also rumored for the role once played by Sophia Lillis just before Christmas.

Chastain has always been rumored to be the top choice to play an adult version of Beverly Marsh because of her history with the sibling team Andy and producer Barbara Muschietti, who she worked with on 2011's Mama. Do you agree with Chastain's casting, or did you have another actress in mind to play Beverly? "I think one of the first things that we noticed when we saw Sophia come into the room was, my gosh, you look like [Chastain]", Barbara Muschietti said.

In King's novel, adult Bev is a successful fashion designer in an abusive marriage.

As Warner Bros. has its sights set on a September 2019 release date for Chapter Two, filming on the sequel is set to begin this summer.
