J K Rowling has already penned the script for the second Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them movie…
This November, Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them will take us back into the world inhabited by Harry Potter, in the first of three films set before the time of the famous boy wizard. David Yates, who helmed the last four Harry Potter movies, is directing, and author J K Rowling has written her first ever original screenplay for the movie.
Chatting to GSN at the premiere of his new movie, The Legend Of Tarzan, Yates has revealed that plans for the second Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them movie are already quite advanced. “We’ve done the first one”, he said, and “she’s written the second one, she’s got ideas for the third one”.
The sequel script sounds like it’s already in place, then, and we’d imagine that Warner Bros would want no more than two years between the first and second film.
“When we adapted the books you would always have to leave out things that you hated leaving out because they didn’t quite work within the structure of the storytelling for the movie or the movie would just be far too long”, Yates noted. “With this it’s just pure Jo from the first page to the last page”.
Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them is due in cinemas on November 18th.
