We Called It! Jessica Chastain In Talks To Star In The IT Sequel!

no title

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.

Not only did the actress star in director Andy Muschietti's horror film Mama, she's a dead ringer for a grown up Sophia Lillis, who gave a standout performance playing kid Bev in the 2017 horror hit.

Now, our dreams appear to be coming true right before our eyes: Variety reports that Chastain is in talks to star as adult Bev!

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!

Pennywise The Clown Drags Down 'The Losers Club' In The Still-Terrifying IT Remake — Review Roundup!

Filed under: Film FlickersScary!Stranger Things

no title

After a quiet, blockbuster-less summer, Stephen King fans are dying to be terrorized by Pennywise the Clown on the big screen.

But based on the first viewings of the It remake, the iconic demon was the least impressive part of the Warner Bros. adaptation!

Overall, critics enjoyed Andy Muschietti's take on the horror classic — specifically, the dynamic of the film's core group, The Losers Club. The friendships and banter of the fearful heroes will satisfy audiences craving some ‘80s nostalgia a la Stand By Me, The Goonies, and Stranger Things.

But Bill Skarsgård's Pennywise had many critics covering their eyes — not out of fear, but because of a cartoonish, cinematic intensity many felt was a clown-step in the wrong direction from Tim Curry's terrifying version.

Though 2017 Pennywise still had his truly petrifying moments, and the demon's other disturbing incarnations sprinkled throughout the R-rated film will make most fans float with a joyful fear.

See what the critics had to say (below)!
