While speaking about if she would be interested in playing the role of Bev in the sequel, which will roll into production next year, the actress said, 'Well, I love Andy and Barbara [Muschietti]. I worked with them on Andy's directorial debut, you know, his film, 'Mama'.
Adding, 'His first film. And you know, Barbara is one of my best friends so, we'll see. Listen, of course, I want to work on it. They're my friends. They're like my family.
