Bill Hader And James McAvoy Might Be In The Sequel To Stephen King’s ‘It’
Oh snap! Pennywise is coming back, this time with the adult versions of Richie Tozier and Bill Denbrough, sources told Entertainment Weekly.
As EW reports: Bill Hader is in talks to star in the sequel to It as the motor-mouthed joker Richie (played in the first film by Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard), and James McAvoy is negotiating to take on the role of Bill (originated by Midnight Special actor Jaeden Lieberher).
What’s even better, is Jessica Chastain is in talks to play the adult version of Beverly Marsh, previously played by Sophia Lillis! Now this is definitely going to be an all-star action packed flick and we’re dying.
The sequel is 27 years later after the events of the first film, where the Losers Club members return to their town — all of whom still have traumas lingering from the early years with Pennywise the clown. In a nutshell, it’s going to be awesome.
