Thanks to Yahoo! Movies we have another interview snippet with David Heyman, producer of Fantastic Beasts, about the first movie:
“We’re at early stages [with ‘Fantastic Beasts’ pre-production], but we’re beginning the process,” Heyman explained.
“I don’t really want to talk about it right now to be honest with you, but it’s very exciting. Jo [Rowling] has written something very special.”
‘Fantastic Beasts’ is scheduled for release in November 2016 and will shoot at Warner Bros. Leavesden Studio, presumably later this year, so we’re expecting casting announcements in the coming months.
Heyman was reticent to share whether they’d be holding open auditions for the lead roles like they did for ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’, saying it was “too early to say” how the casting process would work.
