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

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!
