You won't believe who has been cast as the adults in 'IT'
These comparisons are epic.
If you remember getting scared shitless at the 2017 remake of IT, then you're about to go through it allllll over again.
IT: Chapter 2 will focus on the same story-line, 27 years later (that's when Pennywise comes out of hiding to terrorise everyone).
This time 'round, however, it's going to be focused on the main kids as ADULTS.
So naturally, we need to know who TF is going to play these adults. The kids did such a wonderful job in the first installation, so some fantastic casting needed to go down.
And boy it did.
Jessica Chastain is officially Beverly Marsh
It was reported in Feb by Variety
that Jessica Chastain
would play adult Beverly. Young Beverly was played by Sophia Lillis
in the first film.
Jay Ryan is officially Ben Hanscom
HELLOOOOO GLOW UP! On May 23rd, Jay Ryan was announced as the actor who will play Ben Hascom. Jeremy Ray Taylor played Ben as a kid.
We're into THIS.

Mike Hanlon's adult actor has yet to be decided!
