Stephen King fans may have just gotten over the latest Pet Sematary remake – but the hype train doesn’t stop there. We’re about to be entering the marketing campaign for IT: Chapter 2 soon, and although we still haven’t gotten to see the trailer yet – Andy Muschietti did share a new image of an adult Bill Denbrough!
Muschietti shared the image via Instagram to help celebrate James McAvoy’s birthday. McAvoy happens to be playing the older Bill, who was portrayed as a kid by actor Jaeden Lieberher.
The image doesn’t reveal anything too much from the film, but it is nice to see one of the cast members which paints a completely different tone for the sequel. After all, it’s supposed to be an even darker and more horrific sequel – all the better to torment its adult cast.
In fact, actress Jessica Chastain who will be playing the adult version of Beverly has already revealed the film supposedly includes the bloodiest horror scene ever:
“I’m gonna say something and I think I’m gonna be in trouble but I’m gonna do it. It might be a spoiler, but in the movie there’s a scene that someone said on set that it’s the most blood that’s ever been in a horror film in a scene.”
“The next day I was pulling [fake] blood out of my eyeballs.”
In IT: Chapter 2…
“Because every 27 years evil revisits the town of Derry, Maine, IT: Chapter Two brings the characters—who’ve long since gone their separate ways—back together as adults, nearly three decades after the events of the first film.”
The film is directed by Andy Muschietti.
Pennywise returns to haunt theaters with IT: Chapter 2 on September 6, 2019.
