They all float up here and in 2019 The Losers Club will reunite when IT: Chapter 2 is finally released. Ever since Chapter 1, there have been constant rumours on who may play the adult versions of The Losers Club in the anticipated second part.
Those rumours have been answered and in the past day, Warner Bros. released a First cast image of the cast to play the grown-ups has been released online. The image is the cast all sat around a table with Jessica Chastain (Beverly), Bill Hader(Richie Tozier), James McAvoy (Bill Denbrough), Jay Ryan (Ben Hanscom), James Ransone (Eddie Kaspbrak), Isaiah Mustafa (Mike Hanlon) and Andy Bean (Stanley Uris).
Production has finally started on Chapter 2 and the past week or so there has been individual images which show half the character as now, the other them as a kid. But now things have kicked off the adults have all got together.
We don’t know much about Chapter 2’s new synopsis, but we can expect Andy Muschietti to have some twists and turns. Possibly change certain character story arcs like he did in chapter 1. We can use the Stephen King book synopsis as a guide. All the Losers Club members with exception of Mike have moved away from Derry. When ‘IT’ returns 27 years later Mike calls the club back to the town to finally kill the monster off.

The one big change from the original storyline is the year we first meet the ‘Losers’ is 1989 rather than the 1950’s. Which would mean roughly be 2016 in the next film, making it a contemporary story.
The losers will be joined by a few other new faces including Teach Grant as Henry Bowers, Xavier Dolan as Adrian Mellon and Will Beinbrink as Tom Rogan.
IT: Chapter 2 is set for a September 2019 release date.
