Director Andy Muschietti Promises That It: Chapter 2 Will Be Even Scarier Than The First Movie

During the Warner Bros. presentation at CinemaCon, a video was shared in which director Andy Muscheitte talked a little bit about It: Chapter 2. He teased that there are going to be some very dark things to come. He's currently prepping to shoot the sequel, but he promised:

"It's going to be scarier and more intense, so bring your adult diapers."

I love that he says this! Usually, the adult aspect of Stephen King's It story isn't the most popular part. Especially in the 1990s TV movie. It's everyone's least favorite part of the story. But Muscheitte is obviously looking to change that and make this second part of the story even better than the first. I can't wait to see what he ends up doing with it!

The next film will be set 27 years after the Losers Club defeated Pennywise The Clown when they were kids. As they've grown up,

Stranger Things Season 3 Begins Filming

Stranger Things Season 3 has officially begun filming, which means we're already that much closer to the next season appearing on Netflix! Everything we've read so far about the new season sounds interesting, and it looks like Season 4 is already a sure thing. Why? If I had to guess it's because Season 3's story ends on a cliffhanger, which would definitely suck, although as long as the new season isn't terrible I can suffer through it!

Executive producer Shawn Levy previously revealed that the third season would take place one year after the second season, so that would set it during the summer of 1985. He went on to talk about the relationships of the teen characters. When the story picks up Eleven (Millie Bobbie Brown) and Mike (Finn Wolfhard) will be a couple as will Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin) and Max (Sadie Sink). He also said that Steve Harrington will have a

Shawn Levy talks Stranger Things future, may extend to five seasons

As we’ve heard previously from creators The Duffer Brothers, Netflix’s hit supernatural drama series Stranger Things is being eyed for a four season run, meaning we have two more trips back in time to Hawkins, Indiana to look forward to.

However, speaking to Collider ahead of production on season three beginning this coming week, executive producer Shawn Levy has been chatting about the future, suggesting that a fifth season could well be on the cards, although no decisions have been made as yet.

“Season Four is definitely happening,” said Levy. “There’s very much the possibility of a season beyond that one, that’s currently undecided. And what I would just say is part of the chaos and fun of this particular show is that while the Duffers and the writer’s room and we producers outline the entire season, the Duffers really use the writing process to revisit,

Cary Elwes and Jake Busey join Stranger Things Season 3

Hawkins just got a little bigger as Netflix has announced more casting for the third season of the sci-fi supernatural hit Stranger Things. Cary Elwes (The Princess Bride) and Jake Busey (The Predator) join the series for the upcoming season.

Cary Elwes will play Mayor Klinem, a character described as handsome, slick and sleazy. Mayor Kline is your classic ’80s politician – more concerned with his own image than with the people of the small town he governs.

Jake Busey will portray Bruce, a journalist for the The Hawkins Post with questionable morals and a sick sense of humor.

The Duffer Brothers and Netflix are staying tight-lipped about what the third season will be about and what fans can expect. PRoducer Shawn Levy said at the end of March that it will be “big and spooky” while still retaining a lot of the character-driven heart the show has become known for

Cinematographer Revealed for the It Sequel

They defeated It when they were kids, but the Losers' Club will have to face the ancient entity again as adults in It: Chapter Two, and following recent potential casting reveals for the sequel, a new cinematographer is reportedly on board for the anticipated film.

Collider reports that Checco Varese will be the cinematographer for It: Chapter Two. Chung-hoon Chung served as the director of photography on the first It film, but as Collider points out, director Andy Muschietti could be looking for a different visual style in the sequel, which will take place around 27 years after the 1989-set first film, with the Losers' Club inevitably returning to their hometown of Derry to face the return of It, aka Pennywise. This change in visual style is also reflected with The Shape of Water production designer Paul Austerberry coming on board for the It sequel (Claude Paré was the production designer

It: Chapter Two Star Jessica Chastain Teases Her Fellow Loser James McAvoy

Just like X-Men: Dark Phoenix before it, Jessica Chastain has marked her decision to climb aboard It: Chapter Two with a cheeky social media post directed at James McAvoy.

First spotted by Dread Central, the actress, who officially clinched the role of Beverly Marsh late last week, took to Twitter to poke fun at McAvoy. He’s just entered negotiations to star as adult Bill Denbrough in the 2019 horror sequel, with Bill Hader said to be in the running for Richie Tozier.

No word on how Jessica Chastain feels about that potential casting coup, but the two-time Oscar nominee did share her thoughts on the possible addition of James McAvoy, with whom she previously shared the screen for The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby. All three installments, in fact.

‘A Little Help With Carol Burnett’ Trailer: The Comedy Legend Learns How to Instagram in New Netflix Series

It’s hard to hate on Netflix when it’s giving us the return of Carol Burnett. Best known for the nearly decade-long “The Carol Burnett Show,” the gold standard in sketch comedy for so many, the comedy icon is returning to TV with her very own Netflix show. Titled “A Little Help With Carol Burnett,” the legend of stage and screen is getting by with a little help from her friends — otherwise known as an eclectic mix of celebrity guests and a gaggle of precocious children.

In a newly released first trailer, Netflix announced that Russell Peters will be joining Burnett as co-host. Employing one of the better examples of the old-person-uses-technology gag, a sassy child named Caleb teaches Burnett how to use Siri and Instagram stories, visibly impressed by her many followers and celebrity friends.

Jessica Chastain Confirmed For ‘It’ Sequel; James McAvoy, Bill Hader In Talks

Jessica Chastain has been confirmed to star in the planned sequel to It, which is provisionally titled It: Chapter Two. The Hollywood Reporter confirmed the news late yesterday. The trade paper also adds that both James McAvoy and Bill Hader are also in talks to join the project, which will kick off shooting in Toronto this summer.

THR says that McAvoy is up for the role of the adult Bill Denbrough, the unofficial leader of the group of kids nicknamed the Losers Club, who grows up to be a successful author. Hader would ‘play the adult Richie Tozier, the jokester who grows up to be a DJ. Finn Wolfhard played the character in the first installment,’ so reports the trade.

Chastain will play Beverly Marsh, the group’s lone female member. The project will see her reunited with her Mama director Andy Muschietti.

The first It movie has grossed over $700 million worldwide.

X-Men star James McAvoy and Bill Hader in talks for key roles in It: Chapter 2

  • HeyUGuys
Ever since It hit theaters and exceeded expectations both critically and commercially, moviegoers have been wondering who could take on the role of the adult versions of the kids we saw battle Pennywise the Clown in that first instalment of the horror franchise.

Jessica Chastain has already signed on to star as Beverly and now New Line is zeroing in a couple of A-List actors to play fan-favourite characters Stuttering Bill and Richie Tozier.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix star James McAvoy is eyeing up the role of Bill (he was played by Jaeden Lieberher in the first movie), while Brooklyn-Nine-Nine’s Bill Hader will take over from Finn Wolfhard as Richie. Talks are said to be in the very early stages of development.

The script is still being worked on so there’s nothing to say they’ll star but this would be a really great casting coup for the studio.
