Danish-Japanese actor David Sakurai (“Marvel’s Iron Fist”) has joined the cast of the “Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them” sequel at Warner Bros. Pictures.
Sakurai will play the role of Krall, an ambitious and sulky henchman of the film’s villain Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp).
The film opens in 1927 with Grindelwald having made a dramatic escape and gathering more followers to his cause. The only one who might be able to stop him is the wizard he once called his dearest friend, Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law).
But Dumbledore will need help from the wizard who had thwarted Grindelwald once before, his former student Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne).
David Yates returns as director on the film which opens late next year.
