The adult incarnation of The Losers Club looks in high spirits in a behind-the-scenes group photo from It: Chapter Two.
With filming under way in Toronto on the upcoming horror sequel, the actors playing the Losers all grown-up are seen sharing a laugh during a table read in a new photo released by the movie's official Twitter account.
From left are Jessica Chastain (Beverly), James McAvoy (Bill), Isaiah Mustafa (Mike), Jay Ryan (Ben), James Ransone (Eddie), Bill Hader (Richie) and Andy Bean (Stan). With the assembled cast visibly sharing a contagiously fun sense of chemistry, it is clear they have the camaraderie that made the previous childhood incarnation of the Losers so endearing to audiences.
Taking place 27 years after the events of the 1989-set previous film, It: Chapter Two sees the Losers return to their hometown of Derry, Maine after they learn the monstrous threat they confronted in the sewers has survived to prey on a new generation of children. The first half of the Stephen King adaptation was a runaway success critically and commercially upon its initial release last September and the upcoming sequel closing out the story looks to bring audiences with the Losers back to Derry one last time.
Directed by Andy Muschietti, It: Chapter 2 stars James McAvoy, Bill Hader, Isaiah Mustafa, Jessica Chastain, Jay Ryan, James Ransone, Andy Bean, Teach Grant, and Bill Skarsgard. It is scheduled to be released on Sept. 6, 2019.
