The film, which is set to start shooting later this year, will catch up with the Loser Club 27 years in the future, although the (amazing) young cast from the first movie will reportedly still star in a number of flashback scenes.
CBS board weakens Redstone's hold as feud intensifies
If the board strips Redstone's controlling stake, CBS and Captain Moonves will be free to woo new suitors in place of Viacom . We remain confident that we will prevail in the lawsuit previously filed by CBS and the members of its Special Committee.
The It: Chapter 2 Losers' Club has new members as two actors join the cast, nearly completing the round-up of characters who will have to face the murderous Pennywise as grown-ups. Ransone has also starred in HBO's Mosaic and Amazon's Bosch as well as movies Sinister 2 and Tangerine. Whether we'll be seeing the kids again in Chapter Two is not yet known. There was a part of me hoping the producers would go all-out and cast a really big name in this role, just to fake-out audience members who hadn't read King's book or seen the 1990 miniseries.
Andy Muschietti's "It: Chapter Two" lenses this summer in Toronto. That seems to be in line with rumors that suggest that the rest of the cast beyond Chastain, Hader and McAvoy will consist of more-obscure character actors. It will see an adult version of the Loser's Club honoring the pact they made as children, to return if the evil of "It" ever resurfaced in their hometown of Derry, Maine. Stay tuned as more details on this project come out.
The highly anticipated sequel to last year's IT won't hit theaters until September 2019, but fans are already in for a casting treat.
