Bill Skarsgard, who leapt into everyone's nightmares last fall as Pennywise the Dancing Clown, will reprise his role for Chapter Two.
As expected, the original, younger Losers - Sophia Lillis, Jaeden Lieberher, Chosen Jacobs, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Jack Dylan Grazer, Finn Wolfhard, and Wyatt Oleff - will appear in scenes set in 1985, while director Andy Muschietti and writer Gary Dauberman (who co-wrote the original) are also returning. Granted, you could argue that the book has been around for decades, but director Andy Muschietti showed us in the first film that he's not afraid of throwing a few curveballs, or to somewhat update certain aspects for the times. With the assembled cast visibly sharing a contagiously fun sense of chemistry, it is clear they have the camaraderie that made the previous childhood incarnation of the Losers so endearing to audiences. James McAvoy ('Split, ' upcoming "Glass") stars as Bill, Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain ('Zero Dark Thirty, ' "Mama") as Beverly, Bill Hader (HBO's "Barry, ' "The Skeleton Twins") as Richie, Isaiah Mustafa (TV's "Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments") as Mike, Jay Ryan (TV's "Mary Kills People") as Ben, James Ransone (HBO's "The Wire") as Eddie, and Andy Bean ('Allegiant, ' Starz" "Power") as Stanley.
