Principal photography has begun on New Line Cinema’s It Chapter Two, director Andy Muschietti’s follow-up to 2017’s critically acclaimed and massive worldwide box office hit IT. And today we have our first look behind the scenes.
This first behind the scenes pic comes to us via producer Barabra Muschietti’s Instagram account. As you can see by the post below, it features her brother, director Andy Muschietti sporting a Pennywise 2 jersey and filming a scene – which has been (smartly) blurred out.
