The story of Pennywise continues with the filming of ‘IT: Chapter Two’ in Toronto. According to multiple sources, producers of the sequel to last year’s remake are looking to start filming as early as this summer.
Currently, two filming locations have been discussed. Stage work will take place at Pinewood Studios in Toronto, while some field work will take place in the town of Port Hope, which doubled for the fictional town of Derry in the first film. Filming is estimated to start on June 18 and wrap up by the fall.
‘IT: Chapter Two’ will continue the story 27 years after the events of the first film. Therefore, the bulk of the story will likely revolve around the grown-up members of The Losers Club, with their young counterparts being featured in some flashbacks. Of course, these are just all speculation at this point, based on recent interview responses from actors and film crew.
Jessica Chastain is rumoured to play the adult Beverly. Both Sophia Lillis, the original Beverly, and director Andy Muschietti have both expressed interest in Chastain for the role. Other casting possibilities include ‘Black Panther’ actor Chadwick Boseman as Mike, Christian Bale as Bill, Jake Gyllenhaal as Eddie, Chris Pratt as Ben, and Joseph Gordon Levitt as Stan.
Bill Skarsgard is also expected to reprise his role of Pennywise, the Dancing Clown.
