JAMES McAvoy, Bill Hader and Isaiah Mustafa have all been added to the cast of horror sequel It: Chapter 2.

Jessica Chastain is also on board for the keenly-anticipated follow-up to the popular 2017 horror reboot based on the Stephen King novel.

Mustafa, who is hitherto best known as the Old Spice spokesman in the zany TV commercials, has been cast as Mike Hanlon, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The second chapter of New Line’s adaptation focuses on the adult versions of the characters who were subjected to the terror of demon clown Pennywise (Bill Skarsgard) in the $700 million grossing original.

It: Chapter Two is scheduled to begin production in July this year (2018) and is set to be released on September 6, 2019.

Andy Muschietti and Gary Dauberman are back as director and screenwriter, respectively.
