As reported by Movieweb , Warner Bros. President of Creative Development and International Production Greg Silverman announced that Eddie Redmayne (Stephen Hawking Universe ") Will play the main role in the spin-off of the Harry Potter franchise -" Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them ".|
We announced the interest of the Hollywood film company in the " Oscar " award winner back in April, but the actor has officially formalized relations with the studio only now. “ Eddie Redmayne has established himself as one of the most talented actors of our time, noted Silverman . -We are delighted to welcome him to the magical world of J.K. Rowling. We are sure that he will be able to perfectly embody the image of the central character " Fantastic animals and their habitats " - Newt Scamander ".
The textbook by the wizard and zoologist Newt Scamander was first mentioned in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone , and in 2001 J.K. Rowling decided to publish the Hogwarts student manual as a separate piece of fiction. The director's chair for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will be taken by David Yates, who has a track record of the last four films in the Boy Who Lived franchise.
Last week, studio bosses began looking for three more key roles. The USA premiere of the film is scheduled for November 17, 2016 .
