Filming begins next month on Andy Muschietti’s IT: Chapter 2, and we’ve learned today that the final member of the adult Losers’ Club has been cast.

The cast also includes Jessica Chastain as Beverly, Bill Hader as Richie, James McAvoy as Bill, James Ransone as Eddie, Andy Bean as Stanley and Jay Ryan as Ben.
