‘It: Chapter 2’ Casts James Ransone as Latest Adult Member of the Losers Club

Slowly but surely the adult members of the “Losers Club” for It: Chapter 2 are coming together. Deadline announced this morning that James Ransone has been cast as the adult Eddie Kaspbrak in the sequel to 2017’s wildly popular It. James Ransone recently finished filming Season 1 of the Hulu series The First with Sean Penn but horror fans may recognize him from Sinister, Sinister 2 and Spike Lee’s 2013 reboot of Oldboy.

Ransone joins a cast that features a returning Bill Skarsgård as Pennywise the Clown, James McAvoy as adult Bill Denbrough, Jessica Chastain as adult Beverly Marsh and Bill Hader as adult Richie “Beep Beep” Tozier. If they follow the Stephen King novel, the sequel will take place 27 years after the first film with the kids being summoned back to Derry to deal with the returning evil.

According to sources, production on the sequel will begin this summer in Toronto with a tentative release date of September 6, 2019. Stay tuned to Horror News Network for more casting and production news on It: Chapter 2 as it becomes available.
