Deadline exclusively reports that Johnny Depp is set to co-star alongside Eddie Redmayne for the Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them sequel.
The synopsis for Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them is as follows:
The film opens in 1926 as Newt Scamander has just completed a global excursion to find and document an extraordinary array of magical creatures. Arriving in New York for a brief stopover, he might have come and gone without incident…were it not for a No-Maj (American for Muggle) named Jacob, a misplaced magical case, and the escape of some of Newt’s fantastic beasts, which could spell trouble for both the wizarding and No-Maj worlds.
The report doesn’t state as to what role Johnny Depp will have in the film, even going as far as to say that sources have told them that Depp could even make an appearance in the first installment when it hits theatres in a few weeks time.
Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them is scheduled for cinematic release on the 18th November 2016.
