As if the Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them wasn’t thrilling enough, Colin Farrell has joined the cast.

The True Detective favourite is joining Ezra Miller (The Perks Of Being A Wallflower), Dan Fogler (Kung Fu Panda) and Katherine Waterston (The Babysitters) to name a few.


New Harry Potter Star Colin Farrell

The story of Fantastic Beasts is set 70 years before the likes of Harry Potter. Newt Scamander, played by Eddie Redmayne, is the writer of a Hogwarts textbook and meets Farrell (who goes by the name Graves in the film) in New York.

The story focusses on Newt and his secret community of witches and wizards as he attempts to document magical creatures.


The crew is looking to be as magical as the cast. Director of four Harry Potter films, David Yates will be working alongside David Heyman, producer of all the films and Steve Kloves, writer of seven out of eight of the screenplays.

Unfortunately, we’re not going to get our eyes on this film until November 2016 but at least we know there’s be some gorgeous faces to spot when we do.
