IT gets its adult stars
Pennywise may have found some grown-ups and the IT sequel has found its stars.
Bill Hader is in talks to star in the sequel as the motor-mouthed joker Richie (played in the first film by Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard). X-Men star James McAvoy is in negotiations to take on the role of Bill.
Jessica Chastain is in talks to play the adult Beverly Marsh, played by Sophia Lillis.
In the second half of the story, the Losers Club members return to the town of Derry, Maine, about 27 years after the events of the first film to once again confront the evil, shapeless presence they defeated as children.
There is no release date set for the sequel.
