Andy Bean and James Ransone will portray Stanley Uris and Eddie Kaspbrak 27 years after the events in the first movie.
18 May – The adult version of the Losers Club for the "It" sequel is almost complete.
Actors Andy Bean and James Ransone have both been confirmed to take on the adult versions of Stanley Uris and Eddie Kaspbrak, respectively, in the anticipated "It" sequel, as reported by Variety.
The younger roles were originally portrayed by Wyatt Oleff and Jack Grazer in last year's "It" remake, which was a massive hit among horror enthusiasts, making it the highest-grossing horror movie of all time with an impressive USD700 million collection worldwide.
The both of them will join James McAvoy, Bill Hader, and Jessica Chastain, who were previously announced to portray the adult versions of Bill Denbrough, Richie Tozier, and Beverley Marsh.
Bill Skarsgård, who plays the villainous Pennywise the Dancing Clown, is set to return with director Andy Muschietti helming the movie once again.
Bean and Ransone are relatively new actors for the big screen but have made a name for themselves on TV with Bean starring in "Here and Now" and Ransone in "Mosaic".
"It: Chapter Two" has found its adult versions of Stanley Uris and Eddie Kaspbrak.
The sequel to "It" will take place 27 years after the first movie, where the Losers' Club members return to their hometown to face Pennywise once and for all.
