James McAvoy also, sort of, confirmed the news. Of course he’s making jokes about being Jessica Chastain’s new hairstylist, however, he also hashtagged with #it.

I’d like to confirm once and for all that I am in negotiations to be @jessicachastain ‘s new hair stylist. I stepped in for her go to team a few years back and can’t wait to tame that mop of fire for all the mall openings and kids party paid appearances she’s got coming up. Needed a career change and this feels right. I just hope I can cut it. #wetperm #it #jessicachastainsnewhairguy #careerchange

And just when you thought the casting couldn’t get any better…it looks like Bill Hader will be playing the role of Richie, a perfect choice for the comedian. 

IT: Chapter Two scheduled to hit theaters on September 6th, 2019.
