Last year, the theatrical adaptation of It surpassed all expectations on its way to becoming the highest grossing horror film of all-time. However, the movie only told half of the story from Stephen King‘s iconic novel.
The group of kids known as the Losers’ Club may have defeated Pennywise the Clown during the ’80s, but he’s returning to Derry in It Chapter Two next year (read everything we know about the sequel so far). Andy Muschietti is once again at the helm for the sequel, and he’s brought together a dream cast to portray the Losers’ Club as adults. Now, Warner Bros. has announced the start of production by releasing a picture of the cast together at a script read.
