We're pretty stoked to return to Derry, Maine, but we still have quite some time before we can see our favorite dancing clown again.
The horror flick isn’t slated to get a theatrical release until Sept. 6, 2019, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t getting snippets of information about the forthcoming film.
As we know, the IT sequel has its director, release date, name and, most important of all, it has started assembling its cast—the older version of the Loser's Club.
Rumors of the adult version of the club have been swirling around the internet for months, but it looks like Stephen King’s massive horror story now has its Eddie Kaspbrak. Per a report from Consequence Of Sound, James Ransone (Sinister) has officially confirmed the role via Twitter account, saying: "Well, it’s official. I will have these very big small shoes to fill. Keep it to yourselves…”
Ransone will be joined by Jessica Chastain, who is set to play the adult version of Beverly in the IT sequel.
Also coming back?
That's right, Bill Skarsgård will be coming back to eat the children, we mean, the adults of the Loser's Club, and we're unbelievably excited to see what nightmares Skarsgård will be giving us for the sequel.
The new sequel is set to be a lot scarier than the first. As previously reported, the forthcoming flick from Andy Muschietti is set to be so scary that the director shared you might need to invest in some adult diapers, saying:
"They're gonna find a lot of things that resemble the first one, the humor, the emotion, the horror," said Muschietti to CinemaCon. "People are very invested emotionally in the characters of the story."
He continued on to say: "It's gonna be scarier. It's gonna be a more intense experience. So, bring your adult diapers to the theater."
Yeah, we're already spooked.
There aren't any further details about the forthcoming horror film, but we're pretty excited and slightly terrified to see the new nightmares we'll get when seeing the IT sequel.
