Marvel At New Line’s Pitch-Perfect Casting With It: Chapter Two Mashup Posters


A series of incredible mashup posters for It: Chapter Two have arrived to profile the Losers’ Club – old and young.

Drawn up by artist Shaun Watson (h/t Bloody Disgusting), the gallery below allows us to marvel at New Line’s pitch-perfect casting. Seriously, some of the similarities on display here are uncanny.

X-Men duo James McAvoy and Jessica Chastain are undoubtedly the biggest names on Chapter Two‘s billing, given they’ll be going up against Pennywise the Dancing Clown as Bill and Beverly, respectively. They won’t do so alone, though; in honoring their blood oath from ’88, the entire Losers’ Club will descend on Derry to banish Stephen King’s abomination once and for all.

And so, Bill and Beverly reunite with old friends like Richie Tozier and Eddie Kaspbrak, and it’s fair to say that James Ransone (The Wire) is an absolute ringer for the young Jack Dylan Grazer. Meanwhile, other stars included in Watson’s poster series are Bill Hader, Isaiah Mustafa and Jay Ryan.

Because Stephen King’s horror tome is split between two timelines, It: Chapter Two is said to incorporate flashbacks so that the original cast (see: Jaeden Lieberher, Sophia Lillis and Stranger Things‘ Finn Wolfhard) may return for the 2019 sequel.

All of this adds a real sense of authenticity to New Line’s two-part adaptation, and if nothing else, the gallery above is a timely reminder that the casting department did a stand-up job of identifying their adult Losers. And as for Pennywise? Time has no hold on King’s immortal demon, meaning he’ll once again be played by Bill Skarsgård.

It: Chapter Two slithers into theaters on September 6th, 2019 and yes, filming is officially underway.
