I seem to be one of those few people who didn’t find IT particularly scary, but it’s possible that this may not be the case with the sequel. At CinemaCom, director Andy Muschietti promised that the follow-up will be “darker and scarier”, and to “Bring your adult diapers…to the theaters”.
We will find out on September 6, 2019 when it hits cinemas. Muschietti is set to begin filming IT: Chapter 2 this coming July in Toronto, with Gary Dauberman currently working on the script. Jessica Chastain has been confirmed as our adult Beverly Marsh, with Bill Hader in talks to play adult Richie Tozier and James McAvoy likely playing adult Bill Denbrough.
