‘It’ Girl? Jessica Chastain Is Bent on Playing Beverly Marsh in Sequel (Video)

Idris Elba wants a role in next chapter of horror hit, too

Jessica Chastain is once again telling the world she wants to play the adult version of Beverly Marsh in the second chapter of the runaway hit horror film “It.”

“Well, I love Andy and Barbara [Muschietti] — I worked with them on Andy’s directorial debut, ‘Mama,’ and Barbara is one of my best friends,” Chastain said in an interview with ScreenRant during the “Molly’s Game” press tour.

“Mk… get me in!” her co-star, Idris Elba, said, nudging the actress with his elbow.

“They’re my friends. Anything they are doing, I want to be a part of,” added Chastain. “I hope we can make it happen.”

Sophia Lillis, who played Bev in this year’s film adaptation of Stephen King’s “It,” is on the record saying she’d like Chastain to play the adult version of the character. And in November, the Chastain declared that she’d love to do it, saying she’d “kick any clown’s a–.”

An individual with knowledge told TheWrap that no casting decisions will be made in the near future — as the script needs to be completed first.

While we wait for official casting news, Chastain is in post-production for “The Death and Life of John F. Donovan,” as well as “X-Men: Dark Phoenix,” in which she plays the villain.
