With production now underway on IT: Chapter 2, the follow-up has moved to bring in two further names.
As per Deadline, I Killed My Mother’s director Xavier Dolan and Free State of Jones’ Will Beinbrink will be playing Adrian Mellon and Tom Rogan, respectively. Mellon is described as a gay man living in Derry who was bullied to the extent that he ultimately fell victim to Pennywise, while Rogan is the abusive partner of the adult Beverly.
By this point in the game, Chapter 2 has already assembled its adult Losers Club; Jessica Chastain playing Beverly, James McAvoy as Bill, James Ransone as Eddie, Bill Hader as Richie, Isaiah Mustafa as Mike, Andy Bean as Stanley, and Jay Ryan as Ben. And yes, Bill Skarsgard will be back as the sinister Pennywise.
IT: Chapter 2 will see the adult Losers Club return to Derry for one last battle with Pennywise, with the action picking up 27 years after the first picture.
To once again be directed by Andy Muschietti, IT: Chapter 2 is currently set for a September 2019 release.
