Following a delay of the third installment in the “Fantastic Beasts” franchise, the feature is now said to be headed into production in February according to star Dan Fogler.
Filming was to kick off in July before being pushed to sometime in the Fall and now to next year. Fogler says author/writer J.K. Rowling has been ‘writing furiously’ and that he has yet to receive a script.
The previous film in the series, the second of five proposed ‘Beasts’ films, earned $653 million at the worldwide box office, but was widely seen as a major disappointment and earned the franchise’s worst reviews to date.
David Yates is expected to return as director for the next entry.
