In an interview with The Telegraph, a UK newspaper, David Heyman (producer) confirmed that the first Fantastic Beasts script has been finalised.
JK Rowling’s script for the Harry Potter spin-off, Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, is complete, the franchise’s producer says.
At the world premiere for his latest film, Paddington, Potter producer David Heyman told The Telegraph: “Jo [Rowling] has written a wonderful script.
“It’s early stages. David Yates is directing and we start filming next year. I’m just really excited about it.”
Heyman praised Rowling’s debut scriptwriting efforts: “She is so smart, and her turn of phrase, the precision of the language she uses, is a joy to behold.”
Filming is due to begin on the first Fantastic Beasts movie in Leavesden Studios next January.
