Casting has been set for the Losers Club in the highly anticipated IT Chapter 2 coming September 6, 2019. However, Deadline is reporting that two new names have been added in supporting roles. Xavier Dolan and Will Beinbrink will round out the cast playing two minor but important characters from the book. Beinbrink is slated to play Tom Rogan who is Beverly Marsh’s abusive husband and Dolan will play Adrian Mellon who is a gay character in the novel. If you’ve read the book (And we know you have), Mellon is attacked by homophobic bullies during the Derry town fair and is thrown from a bridge which results in Mellon being confronted by Pennywise. These series of events ultimately unleashes the evil back on the town of Derry.
Bill Skarsgard reprises his role as Pennywise and James McAvoy will play Bill, Bill Hader is Richie, Jessica Chastain is Beverly, James Ransone is Eddie, Andy Bean is Stanley, Jay Ryan is Ben and Isaiah Mustafa is Mike. Andy Muschietti returns to direct the sequel and the screenplay is written by Gary Dauberman. Principle photography is set to begin next month.
