Principle photography has begun on Andy Muschietti‘s It: Chapter Two in Toronto, Canada. The follow-up to last year’s massive hit inspired by Stephen King’s 1986 novel.
The first image has arrived via producer Barabra Mushietti‘s Instagram account and reveals Andy, her brother, standing in a Pennywise 2 jersey as he watches the cameras roll. Even though the screens have been blurred, it’s still exciting knowing that filming has started.
Directed by Muschietti from the screenplay written by Gary Dauberman, the film stars Jessica Chastain as Beverly Marsh, Bill Hader as Richie, James McAvoy as Bill, James Ransone as Eddie, Andy Bean as Stanley, Isaiah Mustafa as Mike and Jay Ryan as Ben. Xavier Dolan is Adrian Mellon, Teach Grant as bully Henry Bowers, with Will Beinbrink as Tom Rogan, and Jess Weixler as Bill’s wife. Bill Skarsgård returns as the demented entity known as Pennywise.
It: Chapter Two opens in theaters nationwide on September 6, 2019.
