The killer clown Pennywise is coming back for vengeance. Yes, production of the Sequel to the record breaking horror movie IT is about to get underway in Toronto this summer.
The finishing touches of the script are currently being written locations in the city are being scouted for shooting.
It’s not that big a surprise it’ll be filmed in Toronto, the original movie was also shot here as well. But who will be in it? Anyone who’s read the book by the master of horror Stephen King knows the sequel will be about all characters who were kids in the original coming back to the town of Derry Maine to fight Pennywise as adults. So who will play these adults?
Some of them are confirmed while others are still just rumoured.
One we know for sure is Jessica Chastain, who will play the grown up Beverly Marsh, the lone girl in the gang. Chastain has been in other large movies before, Zero Dark Thirty, Crimson Peak and Interstellar to name a few.
Another we know for sure is Bill Skarsgård, he played Pennywise in the original and is back to reprise his role for the sequel.
Among the rumored cast is James McAvoy, from the looks of things he would play Bill Denbrough, you know the older brother of the kid in the yellow rain coat who got his arm ripped off in the very first scene of the first movie? Yeah, we're not scared of gutters at all from that.
Among the other rumoured cast are Sophia Lillis and Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard, so there’s plenty of celebrities to go around it seems.
The release date for IT 2 is set for September 6, 2019.
We can’t wait to float down to see it in theatres.
