It looks like some fan dream casting could potentially be coming to fruition when it comes to the sequel for last year’s remake of Stephen King’s It. Along with fans, Academy Award nominee Jessica Chastain has voiced her eagerness to play the adult version of Beverly in the follow-up film that takes place 27 years after the first installment, and now it appears she is actually in talks to do so.

Chastain recently worked with It director Andy Muschietti on the horror film Mama and the two became close friends further securing Chastain’s potential part in the sequel.

“Well, I love Andy and Barbara. I worked with them on Andy’s directorial debut, you know, his film, Mama. His first film. And you know, Barbara is one of my best friends so… Listen, of course, I want to work… they’re my friends. They’re like my family. Anything that they’re doing I want to be a part of, so I hope we can make it happen,” Chastain told  Screen Rant last year.

After the financial and critical success of It (the film had the biggest opening weekend for a horror movie ever), a sequel was quickly announced that would focus on the adult versions of The Loser’s Club, who once again find themselves being subjected to the terrifying Pennywise, which Bill Skarsgård will be reprising.

Do you hope that Jessica Chastain will be cast? Who else would you like to see play an adult character of The Losers Club? It: Chapter 2 will be released Sept. 6, 2019.
