It: Chapter Two Adds Jess Weixler And Teach Grant
The last few cast roles for the It sequel are being filled as the film heads towards production. Now we know that Teach Grant will be the adult Henry Bowers, with Jess Weixler playing the wife of Bill Denbrough (James McAvoy).
Andy Muschietti is returning to direct Chapter Two, which catches up with the tormented town of Derry, Maine years after the events of the original. The Losers Club members have largely moved away and forgotten (or repressed) their encounter with the terrifying, demonic Pennywise, but an urgent phone call summons them back for round two.
The main cast this time includes McAvoy, Bill Hader as Richie, Jessica Chastain as Beverly, James Ransone as Eddie, Andy Bean as Stanley, Jay Ryan as Ben and Isaiah Mustafa as Mike. Bill Skarsgard is back to play their nemesis.
Bowers was the bully who made life hell for some of our heroes (though his actions paled compared to the demonic Pennywise), and the character was played by Nicholas Hamilton in the first film. Audra, Bill's wife, is an actress who he initially urges to stay far away from his hometown when he heads back, but she eventually follows him.
It: Chapter Two is taking aim at 6 September 2019 release date.
