We’ve got our first official look at James McAvoy as Bill Denbrough from IT: Chapter 2. We’ve seen plenty of set photos and behind the scenes photos of McAvoy during filming, but official stills from the highly-anticipated sequel have been few and far between up to this point. Now, thanks to director Andy Muschietti, we’ve got a real peek at what McAvoy is going to bring to the part this fall.
Andres Muschietti, who returns to direct after very successfully helming the first movie, took to Instagram to share the photo of James McAvoy in character as Bill. The image, itself, isn’t terribly revealing. Bill looks forlorn and it appears as though he’s back in his hometown of Derry, Maine once again after all these years. The filmmaker shared the photo in honor of McAvoy’s recent celebration of his 40th birthday. Muschietti had this to say in his caption, making reference to Bill’s stutter.
“And a happy belated birthday to the great James McAvoy who will thrust his f-f-fists against anything that moves in September 6 #billdenbrough #itchapter2”
Trailer is coming soon. But not sure when.
