As we recently learned, director Andy Muschietti is set to begin filming IT: Chapter 2 this coming July in Toronto, with Gary Dauberman writing the script. Jessica Chastain has been confirmed as our adult Beverly Marsh, with Bill Hader on board as adult Richie Tozier and James McAvoy playing adult Bill Denbrough.
We learned earlier today that James Ransone (Sinister, Sinister 2) has also joined the cast, playing the adult version of Eddie Kaspbrak. The character was played by Jack Dylan Grazer in last year’s film, and Ransone needless to say looks the part.
Tonight, Variety reports that Andy Bean (“Here and Now”) will be playing adult Stanley Uris, the character played in the first film by young actor Wyatt Oleff.
Next year’s movie takes place 27 years after the first installment, with flashbacks to the ’80s. As adults, the Losers’ Club will resume their battle with the evil Pennywise.
The sequel will arrive in theaters on September 6, 2019.
