Looks like the cast of New Line Cinema’s IT Chapter Two is continuing to grow. Recently we learned they had finished casting the Losers’ Club with Isaiah Mustafa taking on the role of Mike. The Losers as we know were tormented by Pennywise as kids and now as adults. Now Deadline is reporting two more additions to the cast.
Xavier Dolan and Will Beinbrink will have supporting roles in the upcoming sequel. Dolan will be playing the role of Adrian Mellon. In Stephen Kings book, Mellon is a gay man from Derry who was attacked by bullies. Beinbrink is taking on the role of a man named Tom Rogan who is Beverly’s abusive lover featured in the book as well as the miniseries from the 90s.
Dolan is a Canadian filmmaker who has been on the rise since his semi-autobiographical debut feature, I Killed My Mother at 19 years old. He has also won the Ecumenical Jury Prize, the Gran Prix at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival and the Cesar Awards for Best Director and Best Editing. The casting of Beinbrink reunites him with James McAvoy, Bill Hader and Jessica Chastin who all worked together on The Disappearance of Elenor Rigby.
IT Chapter Two is scheduled to begin filming sometime next month. What are your thoughts on the cast of the sequel? Let us know in the comment section below!
