Filming is now complete for the upcoming sequel to 2017’s film adaptation of Stephen King's It, titled It: Chapter Two. Director Andy Muschietti took to Instagram late last week and made the announcement that it’s a wrap for this production. It looks like everything is well on track for the film’s anticipated September 2019 release as the second half of the iconic Stephen King story comes together. Check out Muschietti’s Instagram post below.
Finn Wolfhard, who plays the young Richie Tozier, also shared his own photo celebrating the wrap-up, featuring a group shot of the movie’s younger cast members. Have a look at that post here as well, and check out the latest teaser poster for the film at the end of this article while you’re at it.
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. Bill Skarsgård is, of course, reprising his role as Pennywise the Dancing Clown.
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.
