The 2017 remake of Stephen King’s It became the highest-grossing horror movie of all-time. Even before earning that distinction, plans for a sequel had already been in place. Debate over who should star as the Losers’ Club kids 30 years after the events of the first film filled message boards and social media channels from the get-go.
We previously learned that Sophia Lillis’ grown-up Beverly March character would be played by Jessica Chastain, and Finn Wolfhard’s Richie Tozier would be played by none other than Bill Hader in It: Chapter 2. Today, we have learned who will round out the rest of the Losers’ Club and other adult versions of children from the first film.
It‘s child stars are expected to be back on board for the sequel in flashback scenes. Here’s how the adult Losers’ Club shakes down.
Young Bill: Jaeden Lieberher
Adult Bill: James McAvoy
Young Mike: Chosen Jacobs
Adult Mike: Isaiah Mustafa
Young Ben: Jeremy Ray Taylor
Adult Ben: Jay Ryan
Young Eddie: Jack Dylan Grazer
Adult Eddie: James Ransone
Young Stanley: Wyatt Oleff
