A Return To The World Of Harry Potter For Director David Yates | Film News


David Yates is in talks to return to the magical, wizarding world of Harry Potter by directing the spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Although the deal is yet to be secured, reports from Variety suggest that the director and Warner Brothers are nearing an agreement. The return to the magical universe will be all too familiar for Yates who previously directed four of the Potter films including Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 and Part 2.


The author of the Harry Potter series J.K. Rowling is set to make her screenwriting debut with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. The story centres on a fictitious author named Newton Atemis Fido Scamander and his magical adventures after he is commissioned to write a guide. The movie will be set in New York, roughly 70 years before the Harry Potter series. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is scheduled to be released on November 18, 2016.
