Will Beinbrink has landed a supporting roles in New Line Cinema’s IT Chapter Two for director Andy Muschietti, who helmed the original. The sequel portrays the kids — members of the Losers’ Club, who were tormented by Pennywise — as adults. James McAvoy plays Bill, Bill Hader is Richie, Jessica Chastain is Beverly, James Ransone is Eddie, Andy Bean is Stanley, Jay Ryan is Ben and Isaiah Mustafa is Mike. Bill Skarsgard returns as Pennywise.
Beinbrink will play Tom Rogan who was Beverly’s abusive husband in the book and the 1990s miniseries.
Barbara Muschietti, Roy Lee and Dan Lin return as producers. The screenplay is written by Gary Dauberman.
Contrary to speculation that the film had begun production — based on an image McAvoy posted on his Instagram account — filming on IT Chapter Two is slated to begin next month. Warner Bros will release the film in theaters on September 6, 2019. Last year’s IT grossed $327.5 domestically and $700 million worldwide.
Beinbrink’s casting reunites him with McAvoy, Hader, and Chastain, all of whom Beinbrink worked with on Ned Benson’s three-part film, The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby. He was also a member of Crew 32 at Juilliard alongside Chastain. Beinbrink’s recent film credits include Free State of Jones and I Saw the Light.
