Horror movie fans flipped out over the release of last year’s ‘It’ remake. And before its release, producers even talked about a possible ‘It’ sequel. Filming has begun for this new chapter, and new details are starting to surface.

All Grown Up

The new ‘It’ sequel takes place 27 years after the events from the first movie. This mirrors the events in the Stephen King novel. As grown-ups, “The Losers’ Club” reunites to take down It. Joining the cast are James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain, Jay Ryan, Bill Hader, Isaiah Mustafa, and James Ransone. Warner Bros. unveiled a photo of the new cast members hanging out on set.

The younger cast from the first film, including Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard, will also reprise their roles in flashbacks. Bill Skarsgård will also reprise his role as It.

It Takes Many Forms

When it came to the adult parts being blocked from the first movie, director Andy Muschietti wanted to keep things separated. “I wanted to immerse the audience into the experience of the childhood of these characters, without poisoning it with jump forwards,” he told CinemaBlend.

Filming for the movie is currently underway in Toronto, and it’s slated to finish at the end of October. The main crew from the first film are back with the exception of cinematographer Chung Chung-hoon and production designer Claude Paré. Taking their place are cinematographer Checco Varese (True Blood) and production designer Paul Austerberry (The Shape Of Water).

You’ll Float, Too

The ‘It’ sequel is slated to be released on September 6, 2019. 2017’s It became a box office smash with $700 million worldwide earned from a $35 million budget. The film beat the record for highest grossing opening weekend for a horror film.
