Script for Fantastic Beasts is Done; Eddie in Official Talks

According to Variety, Eddie Redmayne is now officially in talks to play Newt Scamander, the "magizooligist" in J.K. Rowling's Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Rowling has turned in the script and Redmayne is "very happy with what he has read."



Set in New York roughly 70 years before the start of Harry Potter, Fantastic Beasts is based on the Hogwarts textbook of the same name. The author travels around the world collecting material for his book. The film will also include four other main characters: two American girls and two American boys.

David Yates, who sucked the life out of every HP movie he directed, will unfortunately be back for this movie.

SEEEEEEETHE ahahaha. So interested to see what JKR's script is like.
