Pennywise Is Going To Terrorise A Bunch Of Famous Actors In ‘It: Chapter Two’

Clowning around.

Bill Hader and James McAvoy are in talks to do battle with a demon clown, with the pair reportedly poised to join the cast of It: Chapter Two.

According to The Hollywood Report, McAvoy is being eyed to play the adult version of Bill Denbrough, taking over the role from Jaeden Lieberher. Hader, meanwhile, would appear as jokester Richie Tozier, played in the original film by Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard.

The magazine also reports that Jessica Chastain is a lock for Beverley Marsh. The actress has been linked to the role for some time, but apparently now it’s official.

Bill Skarsgard will reprise his role as Pennywise, so prepare to one again feel weirdly sexually attracted to a hellbeast that eats children.

It: Chapter Two starts shooting in July and will hit cinemas in September next year.
