Rising young stars Andrea Riseborough and Tom Hiddleston join the cast, along with Gina Mc Kee, Kevin R Mc Nally, Linda Broughton, John Atterbury and Malcolm Sinclair, all of whom have previously worked for the Donmar Warehouse.
Lorcan Cranitch, Lucy Briers, Sylvestra Le Touzel and James Tucker are also cast in the production, which is headed by Branagh in the title role.
Hiddleston has the unusual honour of beating himself to win the 2008 Laurence Olivier Award for Best Newcomer; he was nominated for his performances in Cymbeline at the Barbican, for which he won the award, and Othello at the Donmar Warehouse, in which he played Cassio to Chiwetel Ejiofor’s Moor. She previously appeared at the Donmar in Old Times, and was most recently seen in the West End in Pinter’s double-bill The Lover & The Collection at the Comedy.
27 years after their last encounter with Pennywise, the ' Losers Club' has regrouped from their successful lives and businesses because IT has returned and kids are disappearing again.
The only problem is that they have all forgotten what occurred that summer.
Hats off to the winners – and to the Bifas organisers for pulling off the best night in the British film calendar for the fifteenth year in a row.
Jennifer Lawrence and George Clooney are among the confirmed attendees for this weekend's EE British Academy Film Awards.
