Jessica Chastain Really Wants to Join 'It' Sequel as Adult Beverly

Jessica Chastain might star as the adult Beverly Marsh in It 2!

The 40-year-old Zookeeper’s Wife actress – as well as fans and filmmakers of the original movie – are totally on board.

“I love [director] Andy [Muschietti] and [producer] Barbara [Muschietti],” Jessica told Screen Rant. “I worked with them on Andy‘s directorial debut, you know, his film Mama. His first film. And you know, Barbara is one of my best friends so…”

“They’re like my family,” Jessica added. “Anything that they’re doing, I want to be a part of, so I hope we can make it happen.”

Screen Rant also mentioned that Idris Elba could play the grown-up version of Mike Hanlon in the sequel.

    I’d love this. She can definitely do horror (Crimson Peak, Mama) and a lot of people want her to be in it, hopefully this happens.

    I adore Idris but he would be the wrong age (or Jessica would be the wrong age — depending on what age the grown kids would be). He and Jessica are 10 years apart, and in the book the children are all the same age.
