As far as I know, they are still in the process of finishing up the script. They hope to have it done by January 2018. Pre-Production to start in March if all goes to plan.

Another person who could possibly play Bev I think could be Kristen Wigg. I know she's done dramatic roles in the past. She kind of looks like Sophia as well in my opinion.

My biggest question for the kids coming back for Chapter 2 is Jackson Robert Scott. As far as I know, IT pretends to be Georgie again when they are adults. With the other kids, they can say it's because these scenes are after Chapter 1 so they are older. Where with Georgie, he died when he was 7, so they don't get that option. I am curious if his inclusion wil be new material like the other kids, or if they have something filmed, but didn't use for Chapter 1 that could work.

I hope he gets to come back, I thought he was one of the best performers in the movie in my opinion.

True, but at his age, he's probably less likely to look drastically different over the span of a couple years...if he's a little taller than he was when they filmed the first movie, it probably won't be that noticeable. Whereas the change from, say, age 13 to age 15 can be a lot more dramatic.

True, I never thought about it like that. Judging by his latest pics, it can still absolutely work. Another question I've got is based on the mini-series. I haven't reached this far in the book yet. I know in the mini-series Bill visits Georgie's grave at the beginning of the second half when he arrives in Derry. I am going to presume it's this way in the book. I wonder if during the hiatus between the 2 halves if they find Georgie's remains, and have some kind of funeral for him before leaving Derry. I wonder if they might have some kind of new twist for Georgie for the second half.

What about Sterling K Brown for Mike Hanlon?

Yeah, he could work. I do admit I think that Patrick Wilson could make a good Bill. I saw him in Watchmen, and thought he did pretty good in that movie.

By the way, I don't have any contacts with the film people. All info I have mentioned here I've read on the internet from interviews, and articles.

Another factor that could effect IT part 2 is Jackson and Andy and Barbara's involvement with the upcoming Locke and Key series on Hulu. No idea how they are breaking it down, are their gonna do each individual volume as it's own episode, or are they gonna do the individual issues of each volume as their own episode. From what I can tell from the pics posted, they have at least done the first 2 issues of vol 1 for the pilot.
