The photo features Chastain, who will be portraying the adult version of Beverly, sitting and laughing alongside McAvoy (Bill), Hader (Richie), Isaiah Mustafa (Mike), Jay Ryan (Ben), James Ransone (Eddie), and Andy Bean (Stanley).

The adult cast will be joined in the film by the original, younger stars of the Losers Club including Jaeden Lieberher, Wyatt Oleff, Sophia Lillis, Finn Wolfhard, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Chosen Jacobs, and Jack Dylan Grazer. Director Andy Muschietti and Bill Skarsgard as Pennywise the Clown are also set to return.

It: Chapter Two, set to arrive in theaters on Sept. 6, 2019, will take place 27 years following the first film as the Losers Club return home to Derry to face Pennywise once again.

The first It, based on the Stephen King novel of the same name, earned $700 million worldwide -- making it the largest-grossing horror film of all time.


Mandy, Boyd roles to be recast for 'Last Man Standing' Season 7

Molly Ephraim, who portrayed Allen's onscreen daughter Mandy and Flynn Morrison as grandson Boyd, will not be returning to the series with the roles set to be recast ahead of Season 7's Sept. 28 premiere date.

Andy Dick charged for allegedly groping woman
Andy Dick faces charges for allegedly groping a woman as she passed him on a sidewalk in Los Angeles earlier this year, city prosecutors said Monday.

The Los Angeles City Attorney's Office told Variety it charged the actor with one count of sexual battery and one count of simple battery for the April 5 incident.

Law enforcement sources told TMZ the woman said Dick also made lewd comments toward her.

He was expected to appear in court later this week.

Dick has faced a number of legal troubles over the course of his career, including allegations of theft in 2014 and an arrest for sexual abuse in 2010. The sexual abuse charges were dropped in 2011.


Barbra Streisand pens 20th anniversary post to 'honey' James Brolin
Celebrity couple Barbra Streisand and James Brolin are celebrating 20 years of marriage.

The 76-year-old singer sent a sweet message to Brolin on their wedding anniversary Sunday.

Streisand shared a photo of herself with the 77-year-old actor that was taken at the Los Angeles premiere of Sicario: Day of the Soldado last week. Josh Brolin, Brolin's son with ex-wife Jane Cameron Agee, stars in the new movie.

"Has it really been 22 years since our blind date @jamesbrolin_? Married for 20 years. Happy anniversary honey. Bee. X," Streisand captioned the picture.

Streisand recalled her first date with Brolin in an interview with W in 2016.

"I met him at a dinner and expected and bearded mountain-man type, and he had cut off all his hair and was clean-shaven. I asked him, 'Who screwed up your hair?' He later told me that's when he fell in love with me. My fella likes to hear the truth, which is unusual."

Streisand and Brolin married in July 1998 at the singer's home in Malibu. Streisand was previously wed to Elliot Gould and is parent to son Jason Gould with the actor. Brolin is also parent to son Jess Brolin with Agee and to daughter Molly Brolin with ex-wife Jan Smithers.
