It appears that one murderous clown movie is simply not enough.

The latest film adaptation of Stephen King's chilling novel, It, has just hit theaters and there is already promise of a sequel. The film follows a group of misfit teens--self-dubbed "The Losers' Club"—as they face off with an evil clown named Pennywise who has been terrorizing the children of their town of Derry, Maine for centuries.

While the novel jumps back and forth between the characters as kids and as adults in their quest to rid their town of the menacing clown, this new adaptation focuses solely on their childhood and leaves the adulthood battles for the sequel.

In a recent interview with MTV News, the teen cast gives some thought to who they would like to play their characters as adults. The result? A star-studded cast with quite the impressive resume.

Jack Dylan Grazer

The 14-year-old actor envisions Oscar-nominated actor Jake Gyllenhaal adopting the role.

Jaeden Lieberher

The child star's pick for future Bill Denbrough, stuttering leader of the misfit pack, would be Oscar-winning actor, Christian Bale.

Jeremy Ray Taylor

The 14-year-old actor who plays Ben Hanscom, set his sights high for the adult version of his not-so-in-shape character. His choice? "Chris Pratt. I get all fit and stuff," said Taylor.

Wyatt Oleff

"It's hard for me, but my mom and I kind of decided on someone like Joseph Gordon-Levitt…if he like grew out his hair or something," said the 14-year-old.

Chosen Jacobs

The 16-year-old actor who plays history buff Mike Hanlon, would choose Captain America: Civil War actor, Chadwick Boseman, for the future role.

Sophia Lillis

Golden Globe-winner and fellow redhead Jessica Chastain is who 15-year-old would want to play the adult version of Beverly Marsh, the lone female member of The Losers' Club.

Finn Wolfhard

"Bill Hader for me. That's my top."

While a date for the sequel is not yet set, it is believed that It director Andy Muschietti will be returning as well as writer Gary Dauberman.

The latest adaptation is out in theaters now.
