As was first shared by actor James McAvoy, production has begun on director Andy Muschietti’s upcoming horror sequel, IT: Chapter 2. This story will chronicle the Losers Club’s second run-in with Pennywise the Clown decades after they confronted him in the sewers at the end of the first film, which hit last years to massive critical acclaim and financial success. Upon receiving such huge success, the sequel was inevitable.

Taking on the role of Bev Marsh as an adult is Muschietti veteran Jessica Chastain, who was a fan favorite to take on the role with fans. It looks like her days working on the film have officially begun as well, as the actress took to Instagram on Wednesday to hype up her role with an image.

As you can see, the image above melds the faces of young Bev Marsh (played by Sophia Lillis) and the older Bev Marsh (obviously, played by Jessica Chastain). It’s a cool little thing for fans to pick apart, but I wouldn’t necessarily take this as any reference as to how Bev will look in the film. Those who have read the novel know that the years were not kind to the character, and she had since found herself in another abusive relationship, and as such, I can’t imagine she’ll be sporting the Hollywood glam look shown here.

Regardless, it’s time to get hyped because we’re one step closer to IT: Chapter 2 hitting theaters!
