‘Zero pressure’ for ‘It Chapter Two’

‘It Chapter Two’ star Jessica Chastain insists she feels “zero pressure” for the horror sequel to match the box office success of its predecessor. The highly anticipated horror sequel will be released next week and while the first movie pulled in more than $700 million worldwide, the 42-year-old actress – who plays an adult Beverly Marsh – insisted she isn’t worried about whether the new film matches that success.

She said, “I feel zero pressure. This ain’t my machine... I’m a peg. We’re all pat of the machine, I’m like a screw in the machine.”

While Bill Hader – taking on the role of an adult Richie Tozier – agreed the pressure is “all on other people”, youngster Jeremy Ray Taylor (Ben Hanscom) admitted appearing in the first movie was daunting enough.

He explained, “It was a lot of pressure on the first one. To make a feature adaptation from Stephen King - such a legendary writer - people were really upset about it. To turn that in and do him justice is really hard to do and Andy [Muschietti, who directed both films] nailed it.”

Filmmaker Muschietti played down the important of box office success and insisted he’ll be “proud” of the finished film, however much money it makes.

The horror sequel opens with a scene from King’s original 1986 novel which sees a gay couple attacked by a group of teenagers, which was inspired by the death of Charlie Howard in the writer’s hometown two years before he released the book.
