AceShowbiz - "It: Chapter 2" is clearly not for someone with a weak stomach. If the first movie has not assured you of this, Jessica Chastain has hinted that the upcoming sequel will be very gory to the point that it may set a record for the bloodiest scene in horror movie.
The Oscar-winning actress dished on the "It" sequel when stopping by "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" on Wednesday, February 27. "I'm gonna say something and I think I'm gonna be in trouble but I'm gonna do it," she teased during a sit-down with Jimmy Fallon.
Though she knew that she might land herself in trouble for speaking too much about the movie, she couldn't help sharing "a spoiler." She said, "It might be a spoiler, but in the movie there's a scene that someone said on set that it's the most blood that's ever been in a horror film in a scene."
Chastain revealed that they used so much fake blood that "the next day I was pulling [fake] blood out of my eyeballs."
"It's scary," she went on gushing about the movie. While she enjoyed starring in a scary movie, the 41-year-old red-head beauty admitted, "It's more fun to be the scary person than the one getting scared."
Director Andy Muschietti previously teased a bloody scene featuring Chastain in the movie by sharing an on-set picture. In the Instagram photo, the actress was soaked in fake blood and gave a big hug to the filmmaker as she wrapped up the filming on the horror film.
"... she's soooo happy when she can smear her fake blood on me," the filmmaker captioned it as Chastain was seen grinning to the camera.
Joining Chastain as the adult version of the Losers' Club members are James McAvoy, Bill Hader, Jay Ryan, James Ransone and Isaiah Mustafa. Bill Skarsgard will reprise his role as the evil clown Pennywise, while the original young actors, including Sophia Lillis, Jaeden Lieberher, Finn Wolfhard, Jack Dylan Grazer, Jeremy Ray Taylor and Chosen Jacobs, will return to the movie as well.
The story is set 27 years after the events in the first film. The Losers' Club members, now adults, return to Derry, Maine to face the evil clown Pennywise once again, unaware that it has returned stronger than ever and has awaited their arrival, waiting to exact its wrathful vengeance upon them.
"It: Chapter 2" is set to be unleashed in U.S. theaters on September 6. Gary Dauberman returns to write the script.
