A new synopsis of IT: Chapter Two is officially here, and it sounds like the adults of the Loser’s Club is going to have an intense battle against everyone’s favorite “dancing clown” come the movie’s sequel.
While details of the forthcoming film have been slowly pouring in over the past few months, comicbook.com has reported the film’s newest synopsis, and it sounds intense.
According to the source, a press release from Warner Bros. shared a non-spoiler revealing synopsis for the upcoming film, where they tease that evil will be coming back to the small town of Derry.
Read the film’s new synopsis below!
“Because every 27 years evil revisits the town of Derry, Maine, IT: Chapter Two brings the characters—who’ve long since gone their separate ways—back together as adults, nearly three decades after the events of the first film.”
We recently reported that in order to celebrate Halloween, the film decided to share a minimalist teaser poster for the upcoming movie, IT: Chapter Two.
There’s nothing very telling of the new poster, besides the release date at the bottom of it, which is sure to signal that Pennywise will be coming back to the big screen to terrorize the Loser’s Club (and moviegoers) on Sept. 6, 2019.
IT: Chapter Two, what we know so far:
It: Chapter Two, set to be directed by Andy Muschietti, will see the adult version of the Losers’ Club return to Derry, Maine, 27 years later to face Pennywise once again.
Jessica Chastain is set to play Beverly Marsh, James McAvoy will play Bill Denbrough, Bill Hader will take on the role of Richie Tozier, James Ransone will be Eddie Kaspbrak, Jay Ryan will play Ben Hanscom and Andy Bean will play Stan Uris and Isaiah Mustafa will play Mike Hanlon.
While the film will focus on the adult version of the club, that doesn’t mean the kids from the first film won’t make an appearance. As previously reported, the kids from the first film will appear in flashbacks during the sequel.
In addition to the new and old versions of the club appearing in the film, we also know that Bill Skarsgård will be coming back to eat the children, uhm, adults, of the Loser’s Club.
It was also reported that Chapter Two will see the adults of the Loser’s Club tackling the strange ritual that involves the group biting each other’s tongues and laughing. Writer Gary Dauberman spilled the beans to CinemaBlend, saying:
“The Ritual of Chüd is challenging,” he says, “but it’s such an important component to the book that we had to address it.” Dauberman credits the creative bond between production members in overcoming the “difficult to balance” passage.
It: Chapter 2, based on the Stephen King novel, will be in theaters Sept. 6, 2019!
