Jessica Chastain Celebrates Wrapping Filming on ‘It: Chapter Two’

Jessica Chastain Celebrates Wrapping Filming on ‘It: Chapter Two’

Jessica Chastain recently revealed that she has wrapped filming on the upcoming horror sequel, through a series of posts on her Instagram stories. You can check out the various snapshots, where Chastain poses with various crew members, including director Andy Muschietti, below.

It’s safe to assume that Chastain’s posts mean that filming has wrapped for her part, and not that production on It: Chapter Two has wrapped as a whole.

It: Chapter Two will see Chastain playing the older incarnation of Beverly Marsh, as the “Losers Club” reunite in Derry, Pennsylvania as adults.

Joining Chastain in IT: Chapter Two are James McAvoy, Bill Hader, Jay Ryan, Isaiah Mustafa, Teach Grant, and Andy Bean, as well as Bill Skarsgard as the villainous Pennywise.

IT: Chapter Two is set to hit theaters on September 6, 2019.

Variety – Jessica Chastain and Eddie Redmayne are in talks to star in the thriller “The Good Nurse.”

The movie, which has been in development at Darren Aronofsky’s Protozoa Pictures since 2016, centers on the serial killer/nurse Charles Cullen. Redmayne would portray Cullen and Chastain would play a nurse who helped track down Cullen after he killed as many as 40 patients before being arrested in 2003.

Bron Studios will produce and release the pic through Lionsgate.

The Good Nurse,” based on the book by Charles Graeber, will be adapted by Krysty Wilson-Cairns. Danish helmer Tobias Lindholm has been attached to direct the project for the past two years.

Redmayne, who won the best actor Oscar for “The Theory of Everything,” will seen be next as Newt Scamander in “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.”

Chastain starred in “Molly’s Game,” Aaron Sorkin’s feature directorial debut. She will appear in the X-Men film “Dark Phoenix” as an alien shapeshifter and will play the adult Beverly Marsh in “It: Chapter Two.” She was recently attached to star in the actioner “Eve” and will produce through her Freckle Films production company with Voltage Pictures.

Lindholm’s 2015 film “A War” (Krigen), about a Danish military company captured by the Taliban, received an Oscar nomination for best foreign language film.

Chastain is repped by CAA and Mosaic.

While plot details are being kept under wraps, the pic is being described as a character study.

I have always admired Jessica Chastain’s work. So when I wrote Eve, an intelligent, strong, and incredibly capable character, she was my immediate first choice to bring her to life. I am humbled and thrilled to be collaborating with Jessica and Voltage on the film,” Newton said in a statement.

Jessica Chastain Joined ‘It: Chapter Two’ Because She’s a Stephen King Fan Who Loves How Horror ‘Empowers Women’

“I remember reading ‘Pet Sematary.’ Ohhh, I was so young when I read that book, and I got so scared,” Chastain recalled in a recent interview with IndieWire.

It was the kind of casting that seems preordained: When Jessica Chastain was officially tapped in February to play the adult Beverly Marsh in the much-anticipated horror sequel “It: Chapter Two,” the news came only after months of fans dream casting the redhead for the role, drumming up enough chatter that Chastain herself happily admitted to wanting the role in November of last year. The chance to take on the part of grown up Beverly (played by Sophia Lillis in the 2017 horror hit) also appealed to Chastain because it would reunite her with two of her favorite collaborators: director Andy Muschietti and his producer sister Barbara Muschietti.

But that wasn’t the only element that spoke to her. Like plenty of other genre fans, Chastain grew up reading Stephen King’s books and watching the movies they inspired, even if she was perhaps a smidge too young to dip into his brand of terror.

“Oh, yeah. I remember reading ‘Pet Sematary,‘” Chastain said in a recent interview with IndieWire. “Ohhh, I was so young when I read that book, and I got so scared. And I watched that movie so many times. I read ‘The Shining.’ I really like his writing.

The actress, who is currently promoting this week’s release “Woman Walks Ahead” (more on that, including an interview with Chastain and her director Susanna White, to come), is also a big fan of the horror genre, one she believes has often provided the kind of empowered parts for women that still aren’t prevalent in Hollywood.

I actually love the horror genre, because I found that in the past — I think things are changing now — but in the past the horror genre [in particular] really has great female characters,Chastain said. “I’m very happy to work again in a genre that actually has empowered women. And in that genre, you usually see the person surviving at the end being the lady. Do you know what I mean? She conquers the monsters or the bad guys, and she walks away at the end.

As Chastain also noted, the film is her third foray into the genre, including “Mama” and “Crimson Peak.

In King’s original 1986 novel, young Beverly and her friends battle the terrifying clown Pennywise, before growing up (and apart) into very different adults, forever linked by the horrors of their childhood in fictional Derry, Maine. Beverly, the lone girl in the self-professed Losers Club, escapes Derry for big city life in Chicago, going on to become a successful fashion designer.

Yet the scars of her early life run deep, and adult Beverly has spent much of her life in abusive relationships that harken back to her childhood with her evil father. When Pennywise appears again in Derry, the Losers are forced to come back together to take him out once and for all, just as they vowed so many years before.

The “It: Chapter Two” cast also includes James McAvoy, Xavier Dolan, Jay Ryan, James Ransone, Andy Bean, and Isaiah Mustafa. Bill Skarsgård is returning in the role of Pennywise. Production is now underway in Toronto.

Warner Bros. Pictures will release “It: Chapter Two” in theaters nationwide September 6, 2019.
