Recall that this new chapter will see the Club of the Losers return to face Pennywise years after the first episode. Bill Skarsgard will return to play the clown in the sequel, directed again by Andy Muschietti .
To interpret the protagonists in their adult version there will be James McAvoy (Bill), Jessica Chastain (Beverly), Bill Hader (Richie), Isaiah Mustafa (Mike), James Ransone (Eddie), Andy Bean (Stan) and Jay Ryan (Ben).
Barbara Muschietti, Roy Lee and Dan Lin will be the producers; the screenplay is signed by Gary Dauberman. The shoot – contrary to what was announced – reveals the site, will start only next month
