You'd gloat too if you predicted this casting news!

Back when It hit theaters, we listed our top picks to play the adult versions of the Losers Club in the second chapter of the Warner Bros. remake.

While some were wishful thinking, one pick was a no-brainer: Jessica Chastain as the adult version of Beverly Marsh.

Sources say that the script for the Muschietti-directed sequel is still being worked on, but both sides have officially begun to negotiate Chastain coming on to the project, which is set to hit theaters Sept. 6, 2019.

Muschietti did mention Chastain as a top choice to play adult Bev in an interview with Variety. So we won't take all the credit for this casting!

But if some of our more obscure picks also come to fruition, we'll be floating higher than 99 of Pennywise's best red balloons!
