According to Variety, Redmayne was intrigued by the role, but wanted a finished script before committing. Insiders say that now that the script has been delivered, he is very happy with what he has read.
Back in October, it was announced that “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” would be a trilogy, with the films being released in 2016, 2018 and 2020.
Of “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” J.K. Rowling explained:
“Although it will be set in the worldwide community of witches and wizards where I was so happy for 17 years, ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ is neither a prequel nor a sequel to the ‘Harry Potter’ series but an extension of the wizarding world.”
I can’t help but be ecstatic for these movies — getting to head back to wizarding world with three new movies will be so nostalgic. Can’t wait!
