As much as we love seeing set pictures of the Losers Club all grown up, it’s just as exciting seeing them depart the production because that means we’re that much closer to seeing It: Chapter 2. That’s the case with the exit of Jessica Chastain’s Beverly, who took over for Sophia Lillis in the sequel.
Director Andy Muschietti, who’s returning for the adult portion of the Stephen King adaptation, posted a picture of himself and the actress together on her last day of shooting — and her attire could hint at her character’s messy fate.
Check it out:
Chastain’s drenched in blood, head to toe, in a Carrie-like coating that could harken back to her younger self’s puberty-inspired bathroom trauma. Yikes. But as Muschietti writes, she’s “#wrappedbutnotforgotten” — the fake blood will stick in fans’ memories far longer than it took to film whatever awful tortures that Pennywise put her through.
Audiences can jump 27 years in the future along with the cast when everyone returns to Derry on Sep. 6 of next year.
