James McAvoy and Bill Hader in Negotiations for 'IT' Sequel


  • James McAvoy and Bill Hader are in negotiations to star in It: Chapter 2, which starts filming this summer.

  • McAvoy would play the older version of Bill (played by Jaeden Lieberher in the first chapter) while Hader would play Richie (played by Finn Wolfhard in the first chapter).

  • They would join Jessica Chastain, who is already on board as Beverly (played by Sophia Lillis in the first chapter).

I'd seen multiple people fancast Bill Hader, so that's cool, but James McAvoy is a surprising turn of events!
