As reported by The Hollywood Reporter , Warner Bros. is considering the nomination of Oscar Eddie Redmayne (Universe Stephen Hawking ") for the lead role in the Harry Potter spin-off -" Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them ".|
The film will take place 70 years before the events of the Boy Who Lived movie series. Redmayne can appear on the screen as the wizard and zoologist Newt Scamander , whose textbook was first mentioned in the novel " Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone ". In 2001, J.K. Rowling has published the Hogwarts Student Manual as a stand-alone piece of fiction.
A year ago, WB announced that a trilogy is in the works, and last October David Yates took over the director's chair for the project's four latest films about Harry Potter travels.
“I am continuing to work on the script for“ Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them ”, Rowling noted. -As for the prospects for Gary Potter 8 , I don't think readers should expect the story of Harry , Ron to continue >and Hermione . However, never say never. This is my world. One day I can decide to return to it.
According to insiders, before negotiations with the studio, Redmayne wants to get an opportunity to evaluate the script. Earlier there was information that the shooting of the film should start in the summer, and therefore work on the text can be completed in the very near future. Eddie is currently filming the drama Danish Girl.
The USA premiere of Fantastic Beasts and Their Habitats is scheduled for November 17, 2016 .
