A new image featuring James McAvoy sees the talented actor portraying grown-up Bill Denbrough in Andy Muschietti’s follow-up to It: Chapter One.
Anticipation is hotting up for Andy Muschietti’s sequel to It: Chapter One. In a “first look” images from the film, we see James McAvoy portraying the grown-up Bill Denbrough (who was previously seen in childhood with Jaeden Lieberher in the role).
McAvoy is part of an excellent ensemble which includes Jessica Chastain and Bill Hader. It: Chapter Two picks up the story of Pennywise the Clown 27 years after the events of the first film. The children of Part 1 are now adults and, having sworn an oath to return to defeat the monster who once tormented them, are brought back together after the murders begin again.
Muschietti has his work cut out to reach the heights of the first instalment but the talented director has all the attributes to deliver another thrilling horror film based on Stephen King’s brilliant novel.
It: Chapter Two arrives in UK cinemas on 6 September.
