Looks like the It sequel may have found their adult Beverly. First reported by Variety, New Line Cinema and director Andy Muschietti have reportedly reached out to A-list actress Jessica Chastain, and are now in the early stages of negotiating a contract. The Internet went abuzz in 2017 after the film was released, with numerous publications speculating that Chastain would play the older version of Sophia Lillis’ Beverly, since Chastain and Muschietti previously worked together on the horror flick, Mama. Adding fuel to the fire, Sophia Lillis, who plays Beverly in chapter one, mentioned in interviews how Chastain would be her number one choice to play her adult character; as did Muschietti and his sister, who produced the film. If Chastain is to sign on to the film, it will add the stars already busy schedule. She recently wrapped up filming Molly’s Game for which she was nominated for a Golden Globe, and will also star in the new X-Men film, Dark Phoenix.
