We're over a year away from the debut of It: Chapter Two on September 9, 2019, but the movie is taking shape. Fans of Stephen King's original 1986 novel have been waiting to see how the rest of the book is portrayed onscreen after the success of It in 2017. The horror thriller, about a group of small town teens being terrorized by a shapeshifting entity, took in over $320 million at the domestic box office (more than
Thor: Ragnarok). A sequel was most likely happening no matter what, but those kinds of numbers up the ante considerably. A lot is riding on It: Chapter 2, and it all begins with the cast.

Casting adults to play roles already established by child actors is a tricky thing. It's doubly tricky when the characters also have a built-in fanbase. Director Andy Muschietti and his team had their work cut out for them, but they've done a fine job so far. Except for Mike Hanlon, the entire Losers Club has been cast. Here's who we've got so far:

"Stuttering" Bill Denbrough will be played by...

I'm not too proud to admit none of my casting predictions for this sequel have come to pass (Chastain was already in talks). I'm still waiting for Chiwetel Ejiofor as Mike. C'mon Chiwetel! 

What do you think of the adult Losers cast so far in It: Chapter Two?
