IT Chapter 2 casting: TWO more stars join Jessica Chastain's Beverly as Losers club adults
The IT movie terrified audiences last year and now it’s second part is set to shoot this year.
But the big difference is a huge time jump, with It: Chapter Two set 27 years after the 1980s-set events of the first film.
And now Deadline have reported that Andy Bean is to play the older version of Stanley Uris while James Ransone will portray Eddie Kaspbrak all grown up.
Bean is best known for HBO’s Here and Now, while Ransone played Ziggy in The Wire.
The two stars join Chastain, who will play adult Beverly – the only female in the Losers Club.
While McAvoy plays Bill and Hader portrays the class clown Richie.
That still leaves two of the boys to cast and Ben Hanscom, the overweight member of the group, grows up to be quite the hunk.
A popular choice for his part is Chris Pratt, who actually did transform from loveable chubster to action A-lister in real life.
The horror sequel is due to start shooting this summer in Toronto, with the child Loser Club cast returning for flashback sequences.
It: Chapter Two will be released in UK cinemas on September 6, 2019.
