It was a long road, the casting of It: Chapter 2, but each and every Loser finally been announced (along with a hefty portion of its supporting cast). Filming for the sequel to Andy Muschietti’s blockbuster began in earnest last month, and while James McAvoy offered us a peek at the gang in action, Warner Bros. has now shared a pic of the club in full.
The cast unfolds thusly: Jessica Chastain as Beverly Marsh, James McAvoy as Bill Denborough, Bill Hader as Richie Tozier, James Ransone as Eddie Kaspbrak, Andy Bean as Stan Uris, Jay Ryan as Ben Hanscomb, and Isaiah Mustafa as Mike Hanlon. Though they don’t appear to be in character, you can see the whole crew in the below photo.
