    J.K. Rowling Begins Writing Third “Beasts”

    Author J.K. Rowling has made the announcement that she has begun writing the script for the third installment of the “Harry Potter” film spin-off series “Fantastic Beasts”.

    In a posting on her official site, the author says she has just finished the fourth Galbraith novel titled “Lethal White” and is now “writing the screenplay for Fantastic Beasts 3. After that I’ll be writing another book for children”.

    Not much else has been revealed about the third “Fantastic Beasts” film as yet beyond it being the middle chapter in an intended series of five films.

    The news comes ahead of the release of the second film, “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald,” later this year.

    Depp Returning For “Fantastic Beasts 3”

    Actor Johnny Depp has confirmed he will be reprising his role of the evil wizard Grindelwald in the upcoming third “Fantastic Beasts” film.

    Depp first played the role in 2016’s “Harry Potter” spin-off film “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” and has much more substantial screen time in next month’s follow-up “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald”.

    With author J.K. Rowling having planned five ‘Beasts’ films, it has been expected those involved will be in each one, but Depp’s involvement has been doubted due to various media reports. Speaking with Collider this week, Depp says:

    “I loved it because that’s really an arena where you can fly around and try different things and approach a character with a lot more…um…to take someone who is teetering on being a fascist, yeah he’s a fascist, he’s one of those, but to play him as a sensitive, concerned yet manipulative and powerful wizard. The possibilities in that world are wide open, so you can really try anything. So it was a gas and I look forward to the next installment, which I think we start the middle of next year.”

    “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” hits cinemas on November 16th

    “Fantastic Beasts 3” Delays Production

    Warner Bros. Pictures is reportedly pushing back the production start of the third “Fantastic Beasts” film. Originally slated to go before the cameras in July, it now appears the shoot for the “Harry Potter” spin-off won’t begin until late Fall.

    The delay is said to be due to the production team needing more pre-production time for the threequel. Actors are being alerted about the push in production in order to change their working schedules. David Yates is still set to direct the film which is likely to be shot at Leavesden studios in the UK.

    While the film has been rumored for a late 2020 release, that wasn’t confirmed. The previous film, “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” made around $650 million at the global box office when it was released last year, even as it managed the worst review aggregate score of any film in the ‘Potter’ franchise.
