Harry Potter spinoff FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM to be directed by…
Warner Bros. has declared that they want David Yates to return to the Harry Potter series for FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM. You can now declare that this is WB’s attempt to reignite the movie franchise that was straight pumping money into their coffers.
Yates, if you weren’t paying attention was the director of the last four Harry Potter films in the 8-film franchise. A franchise that eared WB billions of dollars over a decade period. Though I’ve yet to read the book, I hear it doesn’t feature any of the main Harry Potter crew and Hogwarts is more of a “known place” than being a central part of the book. Word is also that J.K. Rawling herself is working on the script, so maybe this film will have more of her touch of comedic humour (see what I did there).
Do you know anything about the book? Excited about this film? Let us know in the comments!
