Yes, I’ve read the Stephen King novel but why not have a little fun here? What if we got an It Chapter Three? Soon after the “young Losers” won everyone over in the first It movie when it hit theaters in 2017, the Internet ran wild tossing out suggestions for their adult counterparts, with director Andy Muschietti ultimately assembling an A+ ensemble. In an effort to keep that fun going just a little longer we ask, who would we fan-cast as the “old Losers?” That’s the question we posed to It Chapter Two stars Jessica Chastain, Jay Ryan, Bill Hader, James Ransone, Isaiah Mustafa, and Andy Bean.
The movie features that group and James McAvoy as the “adult Losers:” Bev, Ben, Richie, Eddie, Mike, Stan and Bill, respectively. Twenty-seven years after the events of the first film, most of the group has moved on and out of Derry. But, of course, at the end of that first film, they made a pact; if Pennywise ever returned to Derry, so would they. Sure enough, the time has come and the Losers must reunite to take down Pennywise, hopefully once and for all.
It Chapter Two hits theaters nationwide on September 6th and you should keep an eye on Collider leading up to that release because we’ve got a ton of It content brewing. Give the video at the top of this article a watch to find out who Chastain, Ryan, Hader, Ransone, Mustafa and Bean would fan-cast as the old version of their characters. And don’t forget to drop your own casting choices for the “old Losers” in the comments section below!
Here’s the official synopsis for IT Chapter Two:
Because every 27 years evil revisits the town of Derry, Maine, “IT CHAPTER TWO” brings the characters—who’ve long since gone their separate ways—back together as adults, nearly three decades after the events of the first film. James McAvoy (“Split,” upcoming “Glass”) stars as Bill, Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain (“Zero Dark Thirty,” “Mama”) as Beverly, Bill Hader (HBO’s “Barry,” “The Skeleton Twins”) as Richie, Isaiah Mustafa (TV’s “Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments”) as Mike, Jay Ryan (TV’s “Mary Kills People”) as Ben, James Ransone (HBO’s “The Wire”) as Eddie, and Bill Skarsgård returning in the seminal role of Pennywise. Andy Bean (“Allegiant,” Starz’ “Power”) plays Stanley, and reprising their roles as the original members of the Losers Club are Jaeden Martell as Bill, Wyatt Oleff as Stanley, Sophia Lillis as Beverly, Finn Wolfhard as Richie, Jeremy Ray Taylor as Ben, Chosen Jacobs as Mike, and Jack Dylan Grazer as Eddie.
