The Losers are all set to return. According to The Hollywood Reporter Isaiah Mustafa has joined the cast as the adult version of Mike Hanlon. Mustafa, who is known for being the spokesman for Old Spice and his role on the Freeform show Shadowhunters, is the last member of the Losers to get cast and boy do we have one hell of a cast.
We have Jay Ryan as Ben Hanscom, Andy Bean as Stan Uris, James Ransone as Eddie Kaspbrak, Jessica Chastain as Beverly Marsh, James McAvoy as Bill Denbrough, Bill Hader as Richie Tozier, and finally Mutafa. You get a much bigger casting budget when you make $700 million at the worldwide box office after opening in a weekend that is usually marred by flops.
The production is set to start in July so now that we have the main cast we’ll likely see some supporting players get cast in the next couple of weeks. Andy Muschietti is back as the director and Gary Dauberman is back as the screenwriter. It: Chapter 2 will open on September 6th, 2019.
