‘It Chapter Two’ almost had a cameo from a legendary horror director
It: Chapter Two can’t help but tease fans about the highly-anticipated horror movie that just drops in a handful of days.
Now, director Andy Muschietti has revealed that Academy Award-winning director Guillermo del Toro almost had a cameo.
In a recent interview, Muschietti revealed that he wanted the director to be one of the many cameos in the sequel.
"I wanted Guillermo in the movie," he said. "We were this close. He was going to play the janitor that Ben runs into when he's running away from Pennywise. That scene, of course, would have been like five minutes longer if Guillermo was in it."
It's unclear why it wasn't able to happen, but the cameo would have been amazing.
In other news, the film just had its premiere with nearly the full cast present.
One of the most exciting parts about the upcoming film is that it takes place 27 years after the original, which means it will feature both adult and the original versions of the Losers’ Club.
The adult cast includes Jessica Chastain as Beverly Marsh, James McAvoy as Bill Denbrough and Bill Hader as Richie Tozier. Additionally, James Ransone will appear as Eddie Kaspbrak, Jay Ryan as Ben Hanscom, Andy Bean as Stan Uris and Isaiah Mustafa as Mike Hanlon.
That cast, along with the beloved kids club, got together at the premiere on Monday, minus McAvoy. It was the ultimate photo op we needed.
The official movie account shared the iconic photo, as well as individual group shots of the adults and losers. Also, they threw in a photo of Bill Skarsgard in front of a truly devious Pennywise photo. You can see the full post below.

“But sometimes, what we try to leave in the past won’t stay there,” the voice says in the teaser, obviously referring to Pennywise tormenting the Losers’ Club more than two-decades after the first film.
We’ve known for awhile that the film is going to be gory. It apparently has a scene that contains the “most blood that’s been in a horror scene.” We know it probably involves Jessica Chastain since she was the one who teased it, so it seems like this teaser might give us another glimpse at that.
It: Chapter Two hits theaters on September 6. Check out the new teaser below as well as the final full-length trailer.
