Production on IT: Chapter 2 has begun, and to mark the occasion Warner Bros. have released a picture of the Losers Club together once more. They posted the photo over on the IT Movie’s official Twitter, and it shows the 7 adult members of the Losers Club taking part in a table read of the script. The caption reads “Back to Derry with these Losers. #ITMovie” Chapter 2 will follow on from the first movie, 27 years later as Pennywise returns to Derry and so, because of this, do the Losers.

The main cast includes James McAvoy as Bill, Jessica Chastain as Beverly, Bill Hader as Richie, Jay Ryan as Ben and James Ransone as Eddie, Andy Bean as Stanely Uris, Isaiah Mustafa as Mike, Teach Grant as Henry Bowers, Jess Weixler as Bill’s wife, Xavier Dolan as Adrian Mellon, Will Beinbrink as Tom Rogan and Bill Skarsgård is back as Pennywise the dancing clown.
The young Losers Club: Jaeden Lieberher, Wyatt Oleff, Sophia Lillis, Finn Wolfhard, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Chosen Jacobs and Jack Dylan Grazer will also return in the form of flashbacks.
Based on the book by Stephen King, this adaptation is penned by Gary Dauberman, and Andy Muschietti will be returning to direct. After the success of the first movie, being the highest grossing R-rated horror movie of all time, and the excellent cast, expectations for this sequel are high.
This isn’t the only behind-the-scenes look we have had at the cast recently. James McAvoy posted a photo on his Instagram that was a series of Polaroids of him and his fellow cast, including some pictures with the young Losers Club actors.
It: Chapter 2 will be released in theatres on September 6, 2019.
