Evil resurfaces in Derry as cameras roll on IT Chapter Two

03 Jul 2018
Director Andy Muschietti reunites the Losers Club - young and adult - in a return to Derry
Principal photography has begun on New Line Cinema’s “IT CHAPTER TWO,” director Andy Muschietti’s follow-up to 2017’s critically acclaimed and massive worldwide box office hit “IT,” which grossed over $700 million globally.  Both redefining and transcending the genre, “IT” became part of the cultural zeitgeist as well as the highest-grossing horror film of all time.

Because every 27 years evil revisits the town of Derry, Maine, “IT CHAPTER TWO” brings the characters - who’ve long since gone their separate ways - back together as adults, nearly three decades after the events of the first film. Bill Skarsgård returns in the seminal role of Pennywise.  James McAvoy stars as Bill, Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain as Beverly, Bill Hader as Richie, Isaiah Mustafa as Mike, Jay Ryan as Ben, James Ransone as Eddie, and Andy Bean as Stanley.

Muschietti directs from a screenplay by Gary Dauberman (“IT,” “Annabelle: Creation”) based on the novel by Stephen King.  Barbara Muschietti, Dan Lin and Roy Lee are producing the film. Marty Ewing, Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg are the executive producers.

Production will take place in Toronto, Canada, with “IT CHAPTER TWO” set to open in cinemas September 2019.
