While details on It: Chapter Two have been kept under wraps since the film concluded late last year, star Jessica Chastain has teased it will be one of the bloodiest horror movies ever.
While appearing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night to promote Dark Phoenix, Chastain decided to reveal a behind-the-scenes spoiler from the upcoming Stephen King adaptation.
"I’m going to say something, and I think I’m going to be in trouble, but I’m going to do it," declared Chastain. "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. And I’ll tell you, the next day I was like pulling blood out of my eyeballs. Fake blood.”
With the fellow King adaptation, The Shining, featuring an elevator opening to a river of blood, Chastain's claim is a bold one. However, given the terrifying source material, the eagerly anticipated sequel may just set a bloodletting record.
It: Chapter 2 stars Bill Skarsgård, James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain, Jay Ryan, Bill Hader, Isaiah Mustafa, James Ransone, Andy Bean, Teach Grant, Jess Weixler, Will Beinbrink, Xavier Dolan, Jaden Lieberher, Sophia Lillis, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Finn Wolfhard, Chosen Jacobs, Jack Dylan Grazer, Wyatt Oleff and Nicholas Hamilton. The film is scheduled to be released on September 6.
