IT: Chapter 2 casting is pretty much done at this point, and the film is set to begin filming in June. With the massive success of the first movie at the end of 2017, it’s not exactly a surprise that production has pushed forward so quickly. Fans are eager to see more of Bill Skarsgård‘s Pennywise the Clown, as it’s been teased that he will have more on-screen time in the sequel.
Den of Geek managed to catch up with Skarsgård, who said it’ll be a much different experience this time:
“We’re gearing up for it now, so I’m sort of in the process of getting back into that character of Pennywise. I’m sort of in the mindset and we’re gearing up for it. I think they start in July. I’m not sure exactly when my start date is, but some time this summer.”
“I’m really looking forward to it. It’s going to be a very different experience this time around, just given the fact that you have all of these incredible, seasoned actors to play against, as opposed to having all the kids. So it’s going to be a different experience for sure. But I’m looking forward to it.”
As are many patient horror fans out there. As we mentioned before, the cast has been filled with the likes of Jessica Chastain, Bill Hader, James McAvoy, James Ransone and Jay Ryan. Given the buzz of the first film, don’t be surprised if Chapter 2 ends up having more buzz than it did.
IT: Chapter 2 hits theaters everywhere on September 6th, 2019.
