Actor James McAvoy has confirmed that the highly anticipated supernatural horror film, IT: Chapter 2, has finally entered into production. The 2017 released IT film, which was based on Stephen King’s 1986 novel of the same name, was very well received by critics as well as fans. It went on to gross more than $700 million worldwide, including $327 domestically. The film became the highest-grossing R-rated horror movie of all time.
McAvoy took to Instagram to confirm that production is officially underway on IT: Chapter 2. He posted a picture of himself with a caption, “Day 1 on IT 2. Glad you got the memo guys.”
The filming is expected to continue in Toronto throughout the summer. You can check out McAvoy’s Instagram post below.
IT chapter one followed the first half of Stephen King’s eponymous novel. The film told the story of a group of children who are terrorized by Bill Skarsgard’s Pennywise the clown and forced to face their own personal demons in the process to defeat him.
Although the Loser’s Club was successful in defeating Pennywise in the film, they’ll come back together in IT: Chapter 2 to stop the demonic clown as he once again dares to kidnap and feast on the children living in Derry. The film’s story will pick up 27 years after the first film. Notably, chapter two will follow the last half of King’s novel.
As far as IT: Chapter 2 star cast is concerned, the film will feature the adult iterations of the Losers Club including Jessica Chastain as Beverly, James McAvoy as Bill, Bill Hader as Richie, Jay Ryan as Ben, Andy Bean as Stan, James Ransone as Eddie and Isaiah Mustafa as Mike. Bill Skarsgard will reprise his role of the dancing clown Pennywise in the upcoming film.
IT director Andy Muschietti and screenwriter Gary Dauberman are back to work on the sequel film.
IT: Chapter Two will premiere in theatres on September 6, 2019.
