Totally agree with relative unknowns although I like the Bill Hader suggestions.I'm for a cast of unknowns, or at least relatively unknown actors. Don't need, nor should they, blow tons of cash on a ensemble of Hollywood heavies chewing up the screen and taking focus off the horror...the horror...
Oceans Eleven this ain't, kiddies.
I'm not surprised by Hollywood doing anything. They seem to just remake stuff that didn't work to begin with. I just hope they cast both Beverly and Audra right, and get actresses that resemble each other. I wonder how the flashbacks are gonna work with this one. How many are just gonna be rehashes from part 1, and how many will be new shots for part 2.You're thinking like a rational person. This is Hollywood, though, so don't be surprised if Richie Tozier ends up being played by Will Smith.
I dunno about Christian Bale in this. He's good in everything he does, but still...I say its a good bet that Jessica Chastain will be cast in IT: Chapter 2. I just don't know of any actress that resembles her for Audra. I just hope that Christian Bale isn't picked for Bill. He's a good actor, I just don't think he's right for Bill. Doesn't look like Jaeden.
