Production Begins On IT: Chapter 2

Production has officially started on IT: Chapter 2! James McAvoy took to his Instagram to not only share with us an amazing Derry related pun, but also that cameras are now rolling on the sequel. 

IT: Chapter 2 will be filming in Toronto, which was the shooting location for the first IT.

The cast of IT: Chapter 2 stars James McAvoy (X-Men franchise, Split) as Bill, Jessica Chastain (Crimson Peak, The Martian) as Beverly, Bill Hader (Barry, Trainwreck) as Richie, Jay Ryan (Beauty and the Beast) as Ben, James Ransone (Generation Kill) as Eddie, with Andy Bean (Here and Now) as Stanely Uris, Isaiah Mustafa as Mike, and of course the return of Bill Skarsgård as the clown Pennywise.

The second part of IT is written by Gary Dauberman from the book by Stephen King, and will be directed once again by Andy Muschietti. The sequel will hit theaters on September 6, 2019.

IT debuted in September of last year to the tune of $123.1 million on opening weekend, the highest opening weekend ever for a September release, for a fall release, and for a horror movie. It clocked in just $9 million behind Deadpool for the second-highest opening for an R-rated movie. The film earned over $700 million at the worldwide box office, making it the highest-grossing horror movie of all time
