The second part of the terrifying Pennywise saga IT: Chapter 2 is really taking shape, with production beginning very soon and The Losers Club already being cast. Now, the adult version of bully Henry Bowers has been cast as well. Teach Grant (Leprechaun: Origins) has joined the cast as adult Nick, with Jess Weixler (Teeth) casts as his wife, as first reported by Variety.
Henry Bowers has survived the first film, and will now be out for revenge (with some demonic encouragement from Pennywise) on the adult Losers Club. And, considering this version of the film has stepped up the trauma and has linked itself closer to the source material, expect Grant to play a very psychotic Bowers.

The full cast also includes Jessica Chastain as Beverly Marsh, 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. Xavier Dolan is Adrian Mellon and Will Beinbrink is Tom Rogan. Bill Skarsgård returns as Pennywise.
Production begins this summer as they shoot for a September, 2019 release. Prepare for a whole new round of horror as Pennywise steps up the terror again the adult Losers Club, 27 years after the events of the first film. The film will even include a scene previously thought to be too intense for the first film. So, mark your calendars and bring a spare set of undies for this one.
