Jessica Chastain wants to play Beverly in It: Chapter 2

Jessica Chastain is on many people’s It: Chapter 2 grown-up Losers Club wish-list, and it appears that the actress is equally keen to play the grown-up Beverly Marsh in the blockbuster horror sequel.

Speaking to Screenrant, Chastain said “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.”

A sequel to Andy Muschietti’s It was a no-brainer after it became the biggest grossing horror film of all time, and casting Chastain appears to be a similarly easy decision for Warner Bros. to make.

Pennywise actor Bill Skarsgard discusses It: Chapter Two

After scary audiences silly this year, Bill Skarsgard is preparing to reprise the role of Pennywise the Clown for It: Chapter Two, the second half of New Line Cinema’s hugely-successful Stephen King adaptation, and the actor has been chatting to IGN about what he’s hoping to see in the sequel.

The first movie worked so well at what it is trying to do, I think, and ultimately that is the kids’ story, and you follow these kids and you sort of fall in love with these kids. And the second one will be the adult story. And I think the right way to do it is to make that movie actively different. I think there might be worth exploring sort of the psychological aspects of horror, but also maybe the sort of cosmological existence of this being. What is he, and where does he come from? And, you know,

Bill Skarsgård wants to explore Pennywise’s back-story in It: Chapter Two

The actor behind It’s Pennywise wants chapter two to delve into the evil being’s mind and back-story.

While It was really all about the kids, the group of friends that stood up to the face of evil in attempt to save their town, there is no doubt that Pennywise stole the show. This fact will not likely change for the film’s announced sequel, It: Chapter Two, which will see the friends return to battle Pennywise once more but this time as adults.

The actor behind the evil shape-shifter, Bill Skarsgård, has recently spoken to IGN about his hopes for the sequel, stating that he wants the film to get into the mind of Pennywise and explore the being’s origins.

Nycc: Seth Green says It star Finn Wolfhard’s Richie Tozier is “fantastic”

While nowadays most know actor Seth Green as the voice of Chris on Family Guy or a co-creator of Robot Chicken, it’s easy to forget his humble beginnings as a child actor, and in particular his role in the 1990 miniseries It.

During a Thursday night panel at New York Comic Con for Crackle’s SuperMansion: Drag Me to Halloween, Green, an executive producer on the show, was asked by a fan to recount his fondest memories from being a 15-year-old on the set of It. In addition to answering the question, Green offered up his thoughts on the new It, including Finn Wolfhard’s performance as the comedian of the Losers’ Club, Richie Tozier.

Green said, “I thought that new version was awesome. I was excited to see the whole thing rendered with an R-rating. I love Finn, that kid from Stranger Things who plays Richard Tozier. He was fantastic.

Burger King Russia wants It banned because Pennywise looks like Ronald McDonald

The Russian division of Burger King has demanded that It be banned in the country.

One might think that a ban being called would pertain to the film’s frightening nature or disturbing content, but this has nothing to do with why Burger King wants the film banished.

The company is claiming that the movie’s villain looks too much like McDonalds’ Ronald McDonald and is therefore working as an advertisement for their fast food competitor.

A complaint has been filed with Russia’s Federal Anti-Monopoly Service (Fas), with whom the ban has been demanded.

A spokeswoman for the agency has confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that the complaint has been received and that it is now being evaluated.

“We can’t be concerned with the content of the film because the writer and director have their own creative understanding of any character,” she said, then stating that they would

Jaeden Lieberher discusses an alternate ending to It

During an interview with Variety, young It star Jaeden Lieberher has revealed that the hit adaptation of Stephen King’s classic horror novel originally featured an alternate ending, which would have seen his character Bill going up against Bill Skarsgard’s Pennywise one-against-one.

“I did have this scene where I climb up the tower at the end,” said Lieberher. “When I’m chasing after Georgie, I climb the tower and I’m at a one-on-one confrontation with Pennywise and then I say that I’m not afraid of him, that none of the losers are afraid of him, and that’s how we beat him. But they took those lines and put toward the end, right after our big fight. So I had this whole thing where Bill Skarsgard is grabbing me and pushing me off the ledge, and I had to wear this harness. That was a more difficult scene.
