Well, well, well…if it isn’t Mr. Redmayne. Eddie Redmayne is quickly becoming the next big thing, and as much as it pains me to say it, he might just be the perfect fit for entering the Wizarding World. As much as I love this film series, I’m glad this trailer isn’t showing too much, seeing as it is more of an original story, rather than translating a novel, but I don’t know what to expect. There’s random bits of Colin Farrell, and a reported cast list of lots of talented actors who aren’t as well known (including Dan Fogler, Ron Perlman and Ezra Miller). Frankly, I know I am going to see this movie, and probably enjoy it very much, but these trailers aren’t really getting me pumped to go see it, and I think it’s because Harry Potter has been out of the limelight long enough for the “magic” of the universe to be diminished. I hope this is a good film, because any wizard movie from JK Rowling is always welcome to me.
Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne is set to follow up his fantastic performance in ‘The Theory Of Everything’, by signing up to star in a spin-off from the ‘Harry Potter’ series, titled ‘Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them’.
Author of the Harry Potter stories, J.K Rowling, will write the screenplay for the film, which she promises will be “at least” a trilogy. Redmayne is the favourite to play the role of Newt Scamander, in what could be a lucrative deal should he fulfill the role for the prospective series. Although nothing has been confirmed, and no official offer has been made, according to sources the role belongs to Redmayne barring any disaster.
