The filmmaker responsible for the final four Harry Potter films is expected to spearhead J.K. Rowling’s spinoff.
This week, we head to Hogwarts to discover whether Harry Potter’s headmaster was going to be straight in the films despite author J.K. Rowling writing him as gay.
The Oscar winner, who directed Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, is said to be “deep in talks” for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
Moviegoers will find the Fantastic Beasts of the Harry Potter universe in little more than two years.
J.K. Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is set about 70 years before the events of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.
As part of an expanded agreement with Warner Bros., Harry Potter author will write a film inspired by the Hogwarts textbook Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, planned as the first in a new franchise.
