Warner Bros. and returning director Andy Muschietti are currently filming IT: Chapter 2 in Ontario, Canada where set images offer a first look at Pennywise the Clown.
The evil creature is shown on top of a Paul Bunyan statue at Port Hope’s Memorial Park where Pennywise is seemingly terrorizing some unfortunate soul.
Scenes for the movie will be continued to film at various locations including Walton Street, Bloomsgrove Street, Keene’s Pharmacy, Carlyle Hotel and Canadian Tire store and the Walton Street Bridge.
Bill Skarsgard is also back as Pennwise, with the statue of Paul Bunyan similar to the one in Bangor, Maine, home to Stephen King.
The first IT movie took the world by storm raking in over $700 million worldwide.

IT: Chapter 2
Because every 27 years evil revisits the town of Derry, Maine, “IT CHAPTER TWO” brings the characters—who’ve long since gone their separate ways—back together as adults, nearly three decades after the events of the first film. Bill Skarsgård returns in the seminal role of Pennywise. James McAvoy (“Split,” upcoming “Glass”) stars as Bill, Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain (“Zero Dark Thirty,” “Mama”) as Beverly, Bill Hader (HBO’s “Barry,” “The Skeleton Twins”) as Richie, Isaiah Mustafa (TV’s “Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments”) as Mike, Jay Ryan (TV’s “Mary Kills People”) as Ben, James Ransone (HBO’s “The Wire”) as Eddie, and Andy Bean (“Allegiant,” Starz’ “Power”) as Stanley.
Reprising their roles as the original members of the Losers Club are Jaeden Lieberher as Bill, Wyatt Oleff as Stanley, Sophia Lillis as Beverly, Finn Wolfhard as Richie, Jeremy Ray Taylor as Ben, Chosen Jacobs as Mike, and Jack Dylan Grazer as Eddie.
Muschietti directs from a screenplay by Gary Dauberman (“IT,” “Annabelle: Creation”) based on the novel by Stephen King. Barbara Muschietti, Dan Lin and Roy Lee are producing the film. Marty Ewing, Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg are the executive producers.
IT: Chapter 2 has a September 6, 2019 release.
