It’s been a quiet wait for the follow-up to 2017’s It as of late, but director Andy Muschietti broke up the monotony by sharing a new photo of James McAvoy as adult Bill Denbrough in It: Chapter Two. The actor celebrated his 40th birthday yesterday, April 21st, and the occasion resulted in a gift for the fans with the release of this new image from the sequel. Check it out below.
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 will hit theaters on September 6th, 2019. Andy Muschietti has returned to direct a script written by Gary Dauberman. Both films are based off the 1986 best-selling novel It by Stephen King, one of his most notable works.
