The grown up Losers’ Club is now a full sized club for upcoming sequel to 2017’s “IT”, with Isaiah Mustafa cast as Mike Hanlon (played by Chosen Jacobs in “IT”).
Mustafa, who you may well know as the Old Spice guy, joins Jessica Chastain as Beverly Marsh (originally played by Sophia Lillis), James McAvoy as Bill Denbrough (originally played by Jaeden Lieberher), Jay Ryan as Ben Hanscom (originally played by Jeremy Ray Taylor), Bill Hader as Richie Tozier (originally played by Finn Wolfhard), James Ransone as Eddie Kaspbrak (originally played by Jack Dylan Glazer) and Andy Bean as Stanley Uris (originally portrayed by Wyatt Oleff).

The second chapter of the terrifying flick is based on the second half of the Stephen King novel, in which the gang return to Derry as adults to take on Pennywise once again. Andy Muschietti will return to the director’s chair.
