News Bill Skarsgard Talks ‘IT: Chapter 2: Being a Different Experience Published 1 year ago on June 1, 2018 By Nick Bond Share Tweet This is the first time to my knowledge that Bill Skarsgard has spoken publicly about his return as Pennywise in director Andy Muschietti’s upcoming sequel IT: Chapter 2. Skarsgard recently answered some questions about the new film with the folks at Den of Geek and revealed some interesting titbits on getting back into the character of Pennywise. Skarsgard talks Pennywise: “We’re gearing up for it now, so I’m sort of in the process of getting back into that character of Pennywise. I’m sort of in the mindset and we’re gearing up for it. I think they start in July. I’m not sure exactly when my start date is, but sometime this summer.” Skarsgard on working with Muschietti: “We’re figuring it out, you know… I have a very good relationship with Andy, not only as a director and actor but also just as a very close friend, so we’re having fun with it and we’re figuring out what we’re going to bring to the table for part two.” Finally, he discussed the film being a different experience to the first: “It’s going to be a very different experience this time around, just given the fact that you have all of these incredible, seasoned actors to play against, as opposed to having all the kids. So it’s going to be a different experience for sure.” Cinematographer Checco Varese (“The Strain”, “True Blood”) will be lensing IT: Chapter 2. The Handmaiden and Oldboy DP Chung-hoon Chung was the cinematographer on the first IT to great success. American actress and film producer Jessica Chastain has landed the role of adult Beverly Marsh, James McAvoy (Split) will play Bill, Bill Hader (“Saturday Night Live”) will play Richie, and James Ransone, who appeared Sinister and Sinister 2, has signed on to play the adult version of Eddie, Andy Bean (Allegiant) will play the role of Stanley. Bill Skarsgard will reprise his role as Pennywise. IT: Chapter 2 is scheduled to begin production in Toronto, Canada this July.
