It was announced today that James Ransone ("Bosch," "Mosaic") is set to star opposite Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy, and Bill Hader in New Line’s IT: CHAPTER TWO, which tells the story of the "Losers Club" as adults.
Ransone will play "Eddie," which in the first installment was played by Jack Dylan Grazer. McAvoy will play "Bill," Hader will play "Richie," Chastain will play "Beverly," and Bill Skarsgard will return as "Pennywise."
Director Andy Muschietti is back to direct a script written by Gary Dauberman. Production will start this summer in Toronto.
Ransone just wrapped on Season One of the Hulu series "The First," which he stars opposite Sean Penn and Natascha McElhone. He is repped by Underground and attorney Alex Kohner.
