The “IT” Sequel Has Begun Production

Production has officially gotten underway in Toronto on “IT: Chapter 2” according to one of the film’s stars James McAvoy.

The “X-Men” film series regular took to Instagram to confirm he’s begun his first day of work on the sequel to last year’s massive hit adaptation of half of Stephen King’s iconic novel.

The new film will adapt the second half with McAvoy playing the adult version of the first film’s leading boy character Bill. Jessica Chastain, Bill Hader, Jay Ryan, James Ransone, Andy Bean, Isaiah Mustafa and Bill Skarsgard co-star.

Andy Muschietti once again helms the sequel which will hit cinemas on September 6th 2019.
