Smart money is that the sequel to IT is on its way due to the fact it was the biggest Rated- R, Horror, and September Box Office opening of all-time, taking in over $120 million domestically. Anybody that saw the 90’s miniseries or read the book knows we now need the older cast to play ‘The Losers Club.’ Director Andy Muschietti and producer Barbara Muschietti already have someone in mind e to play the older version of Beverly Marsh.
Andy would love for Jessica Chastain to step into the role! They are no strangers to each other as the two have collaborated before on Mama. Here’s what Andy had to say to Variety.
“Jessi is an amazing actress and very good friend and I would love her to play Beverly. She loves the movie and it feels like the planets are aligned in that sense, but we still have to make that happen. There are a lot of ideas for the rest of the cast that I’m playing with, but it’s a bit too premature to say those names right now.”
By the sounds of it, it seems like he may have already approached Chastain about the project already, but we’re sure we won’t hear anything official for a while. Who would you like to see as the adult Loser Club? Leave a message in the comments below.
