While most fans are anxiously awaiting to hear that Bill Hader and James McAvoy have officially joined the cast, a pair of reports can now confirm that two more members of the Losers' Club have found their adult counterparts. Also: Andy Bean will play Stan Uris, a part originated by Wyatt Oleff. He's able to convey that nervous, twitchy quality that the character requires.

But the big difference is a huge time jump, with It: Chapter Two set 27 years after the 1980s-set events of the first film. Ransone is best known for his starring role in the Sinister franchise, and for his part in The Wire.

Last night, Sinister's James Ransone took to his Twitter account (which is set to private) to say that he has been cast to play the adult version of Eddie Kaspbrak in the upcoming sequel. But that probably would've been expensive, so, here we are.

Apart from Ransone, the film will also star Jessica Chastain, Bill Skarsgard, and James McAvoy in pivotal roles.

City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak saluted Guardiola's ability to unify his squad of rising young talents and established stars. And Manchester City have been hailed as the best team in Premier League history for their pacy, attacking style.

So all that is left from the Club to cast are Mike and Ben, but back when the first chapter was released, the young versions talked about their dream casting picks for the grown up versions, and they picked Chadwick Boseman and Chris Pratt, respectively.

Now we know what Eddie from "IT" looks like as an adult.

2017's It only focused on one element of Stephen King's massive novel - the section of the story focused on the Losers' Club as children. In King's novel, Eddie grows up to run a very successful limousine service. Stay tuned as more details on this project come out.

It: Chapter Two will be released in United Kingdom cinemas on September 6, 2019.
