First Read-Through of ‘It: Chapter 2′ Happened Today – See the (Adult) Losers’ Club

Posted by July 2, 2018 Comment

Warner Bros.’s upcoming sequel to the reboot of It had its first read-through this week, and thanks to WB UK, we have our first look at the grown-up Losers’ Club.

The image features Jessica Chastian, who will be playing adult Beverly, James McAvoy, playing Bill Denbrough, Bill Hader, playing Richie Tozier, Jay Ryan, playing Ben Hanscom, James Ransone, playing Eddie Kaspbrak, and Isaiah Mustafa (The Old Spice Guy), playing Mike Hanlon. Teach Grant will play bully Henry Bowers, obviously all the youngsters getting aged up for the sequel.

It: Chapter Two takes place roughly 27 years after the first film, as Pennywise returns to terrorize the citizens of Derry every 27 years. This means Chapter Two will be set in 2016, give or take.

Yes, Bill Skarsgård is set to return as the scary dancing clown.

Director Andy Muschietti and screenwriter Gary Dauberman are both set to return for the sequel.

It: Chapter Two is set to hit theaters on September 6th, 2019.
