Johnny Depp is set to join the cast of the “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” sequel at Warner Bros. Pictures.
No word on what role Depp might be playing in J.K. Rowling’s creation, but there’s a suggestion his character may cameo in the first film which opens in cinemas in two weeks.
The first 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 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.
Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Dan Fogler, Colin Farrell, Jenn Murray, Jon Voight, Carmen Ejogo, Gemma Chan and newcomer Faith Wood-Blagrove star in the David Yates-directed movie.
