The It: Chapter 2 cast just landed two more members in Xavier Dolan (pictured below left) and Will Beinbrink (pictured below right). Dolan will play the role of Adrian Mellon; a gay man who is bullied, but meets his end at the hands of Pennywise. Beinbrink will play the role of Tom Rogan; Bev’s abusive lover. In the novel, he has a very sinister part to play in Pennywise’s plan.
Dolan previously directed Mommy and It’s Only the End of the World, and has starred in films Elephant Song and Tom at the Farm. Beinbrink most recently starred in 2018’s A Good Girl, as well as One of Us and Manhattan at Night.
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.
