A new photo has surfaced from the production of It: Chapter Two, the follow-up to last year’s horror success, Stephen King’s It. Jessica Chastain, who is playing the adult Beverly Marsh in the sequel, took to Twitter and shared the photo, showing young Beverly actress Sophia Lillis “passing the balloon” to her adult counterpart. There are a number of torches being passed from one star to the next in the new film, but this photo by Shaun Watson is the first side-by-side shot to be revealed so far.


It: Chapter Two brings the Losers' club into adulthood with James McAvoy as Bill, Jay Ryan as Ben, Bill Hader as Richie, Isaiah Mustafa as Mike, Jessica Chastain as Beverly, Andy Bean as Stanley, and last but not least, James Ransone as Eddie. It was also previously announced that Xavier Dolan and Will Beinbrink would be playing the roles of Adrian Mellon and Tom Rogan respectively.

The film has an expected release date of September 6th, 2019. Andy Muschietti is returning to direct with Gary Dauberman writing the script. Both films are based off the 1986 best-selling novel It by Stephen King, one of his most notable works.
