James McAvoy And Bill Hader Are In Talks To Join Jessica Chastain In IT: CHAPTER 2

It sounds like X-Men: Dark Phoenix star James McAvoy and Barry star Bill Hader may soon reunite with their The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby co-star Jessica Chastain in New Line's It: Chapter 2. Check it!

Variety is reporting that both James McAvoy and Bill Hader are currently in talks to join Jessica Chastain in New Line's highly-anticipated horror sequel, It: Chapter 2. McAvoy would play the adult Bill Denbrough, the unofficial leader of the Losers Club, while Hader is being eyed for Richie Tozier, the jokester-turned-DJ.

If both of their deals close, it would make for a pretty fun The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby reunion as all three did previously star together in the romantic drama. This will actually be the second Eleanor Rigby reunion of the year for McAvoy and Chastain as they are also already set to star opposite one another in X-Men: Dark Phoenix, which is due out in theaters in February.

Jaeden Lieberher and Finn Wolfhard played the young Bill and young Richie, respectively, in the original 2017 blockbuster and are both expected to return for flashback sequences in the sequel alongside the rest of the first film's youthful principal cast. Bill Skarsgård (Deadpool 2) will also return as Pennywise the Dancing Clown.

Production is expected to commence this summer with a September 6, 2019 release date already set.
