After It earned a massive $123 million during it’s domestic opening weekend, of course, fans are dying to learn any info on the sequel focusing on the kids as adults 27 years later.
Jessica Chastain has been mentioned as a possible actress for Bev, after working with Andy Muschietti on Mama and supporting the film on social media.
Variety spoke to Andy and Barbara Muschietti about possibly casting Chastain in the role.
Do you have any ideas for actors for the kids as adults? Sophia (Lillis) does kind of look like your “Mama” star Jessica Chastain.
Andy: I don’t know, does she? [Laughs] Jessi is an amazing actress and very good friend and I would love her to play Beverly.
Barbara: She also loves this movie.
Andy: Yeah, she loves the movie and it feels like the planets are aligned in that sense, but we still have to make that happen. There are a lot of ideas for the rest of the cast that I’m playing with, but it’s a bit too premature to say those names right now.
