After IT became a hit last year, fans had an immediate opinion on who should play the adult Beverly in the sequel. And some of those hopes may come to fruition, as Variety reports that Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain is in talks to star in IT Chapter 2. The casting, if it works out, would be the second time Chastain has worked with director Andy Muschietti after starring in his directorial debut, Mama.

Chastain previously expressed interest in playing Beverly in November, a notion that has found support among fans and the cast of the first film. Sophia Lillis played the character in the original. The second film is written by Gary Dauberman, and will be directed by Muschietti. It hits theaters on September 6th, 2019.
