Perhaps, somewhere in between last November and now, you'd completely forgotten that Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them was a thing that happened. If so, you will probably be stunned to learn that the film raked in over $800M at the worldwide box office. You may be even more stunned to recall that there are still four Fantastic Beasts movies left to go.
Well, the next one's gearing up for production, and now this is happening:
“Green Room star Callum Turner is in talks to play Newt Scamander’s brother in the next installment of Warner Bros.’ Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
Eddie Redmayne will return to the sequel as Scamander. Jude Law is on board to play young Dumbledore, and Johnny Depp is attached to play Grindelwald. David Yates is returning to direct.
Yes, Callum Turner - probably most recognizable to the Birth.Movies.Death. crowd for his work in Jeremy Saulnier's Green Room - is in talks to play Newt Scamander's brother in the next Fantastic Beasts movie. The two do share a resemblance, so I guess there's no further discussion to be had.
Beyond the roles mentioned above and the fact that the film takes place in Paris, not much else is known about the next Fantastic Beasts movie (even the title), but it'll probably have wizards and orcs and magic cloaks or some shit in it.
Stay tuned for more on Fantastic Beasts 2, which arrives in theaters next November.
