After a number of delays due to ongoing global circumstances Fantastic Beasts 3 Eddie Redmayne finally started filming in the UK recently, and now he’s spruced up details on some of the action scenes that will be featured in the highly anticipated sequel. Although he can’t go into too much detail, the actor reveals that water will play a role in Newt Scamander’s further adventures.
“All I can tell you is the fact that I think I’ve got some night shots in Watford, in Leavesden, [England]that we should shoot in the water in summer. But now, apparently because of the film’s suspension and shutdown, they’ll be filmed in early December. And suddenly you are swimming outdoors in the UK winter. What can I tell you about the plot? Really not much, buddy. I mean if you come to dinner I can tell you. Unless – I can’t, because that would be the NDA that I’ve signed. “
Unfortunately for Eddie RedmayneThese water-based scenes were originally intended to be shot in the summer, but thanks to the global situation, the actor is instead in the icy waters of a British winter. Unfortunately, due to the secrecy surrounding the property, Redmayne isn’t allowed to reveal much more Fantastic Beasts 3, but no doubt the sequence will contain some kind of mystical magical underwater creature.
Fantastic Beasts 3 Filming recently began after a production delay, seeing the return of Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander, Jude Law as Dumbledore, Ezra Miller as Credence, Alison Sudol as Queenie Goldstein, Dan Fogler as Jacob Kowalski and Katherine Waterston as Tina Goldstein. Harry Potter JK Rowling is co-authoring the script with Steve Kloves, headed by returning director David Yates.
The film will also debut from Hannibal Star Mads Mikkelsen as the villain Gellert Grindelwald. Mikkelsen was infamously cast in the role after the dismissal of Johnny Depp, who had previously portrayed the character in both 2016s Fantastic beasts and where to find them and the continuation of 2018 Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. Fans of the franchise were shocked to learn that Depp had been asked by Warner Bros. to step down from the role of the central villain, and the decision was widely criticized despite Mikkelsen being the perfect actor to take on the role.
Since Mikkelsen was officially cast in the role, he gave an insight into how the character of Grindelwald is changing and how the exchange is achieved. “Well, it will be me, so there is a difference,” said the actor. “No, that’s the hard part. We’re still working on it. There has to be a bridge between what Johnny did and what I’m going to do. And at the same time, I have to make it my own too. But we also have to find a couple of links [to the previous version of the character] and some bridges so that it does not completely break away from what he has already masterfully accomplished. “
Fantastic Beasts 3 will hit theaters on July 15, 2022. This is courtesy of us diversity.
