Dream-casting the grown-ups in the It sequel has been one of the more enjoyable pastimes surrounding the success of the first movie, but even if you had other people in mind for these characters in particular, it's hard to see this casting news as anything but exciting. The lone female member of the club, Beverly ends up in an abusive marriage as an adult. Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard previously played the part in the 2017 blockbuster.

With Jessica Chastain officially on board It: Chapter 2, New Line has now begun to zero in on who will play the rest of the Losers Club with James McAvoy and Bill Hader in talks to join the next instalment.

Andy Muschietti and Gary Dauberman are back as director and screenwriter, while Barbara Muschietti, Dan Lin and Roy Lee will be producing the film.

However, it is confirmed that he will be a producer alongside Allyson Seeger , the executive at Sunday Night Productions Banner. So far there's no writer or actors attached, but THR notes that Krasinski isn't expected to star in this one.

McAvoy is a veteran of the X-Men franchise, in which he's played Professor Charles Xavier three times now (with a fourth turn coming up later this year in X-Men: Dark Phoenix), and he also took on the 24 different personalities inside Kevin Crumb/The Horde in last year's Split, a role he's reprising in the sequel Glass. The child actors, including Lieberher and Wolfhard, are also expected to return for the sequel in flashback scenes.

"They're a very big part of the action", the director assures.

The sequel is set in the present day.

The two actors are in negotiations to star in "It: Chapter Two", the follow-up to 2017's hit horror movie "It", according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The original movie grossed $700 million worldwide with nearly half that amount from North America, and it was a pretty daring decision to split the movie into two parts with the first chapter being a period piece and the second chapter meant to take place in present day.
