A couple of new cast members have joined It: Chapter 2 and they are Teach Grant and Jess Weixler. Grant will play the role of the adult Henry Bowers who, in the novel, has quite a prominent role in the kids’ later lives. Hopefully this will be accurately explored in the upcoming sequel.
Weixler will play the role of Bill’s wife Audra Phillips, who is also a very important figure in the second half of the chapter, providing a much-needed motivation behind Bill’s determination to stop Pennywise’s reign of terror for good.
The child actors from Chapter 1 will also return, so expect to see more from the ‘80s setting in flashback sequences. Bill Skarsgard will also be returning to play the role of Pennywise the Clown. Newcomers to the film will be Jessica Chastain as adult Beverly, Bill Hader as Richie, James McAvoy as Bill, James Ransone as Eddie, Andy Bean as Stanley, Isaiah Mustafa as Mike and Jay Ryan as Ben.
It: Chapter 2 will be released on 6th September 2019 and will again be directed by Andy Muschietti, who directs a script written by Gary Dauberman.
