Isaiah Mustafa Joins IT: CHAPTER 2’s Losers Club

With Andy Muschietti’s IT sequel having fleshed out its core cast over the past few months, the movie has now managed to find the final member of its adult Losers Club.

As per Bloody-Disgusting, Shadowhunters’ Isaiah Mustafa – who is also likely on your radar for his charming performance advertising Old Spice – has signed on to play the adult Mike Hanlon; a character whose younger version was played by Chosen Jacobs in 2017’s IT.

Mustafa joins a cast that currently includes Jessica Chastain as Beverly, James McAvoy as Bill, James Ransone as Eddie, Bill Hader as Richie, 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 aforementioned first picture.

With filming to commence next month, IT: Chapter 2 is currently set for a September 2019 release.
