JUDE LAW Cast as YOUNG DUMBLEDORE in FANTASTIC BEASTS Sequel

JUDE LAW Cast as YOUNG DUMBLEDORE in FANTASTIC BEASTS Sequel

It seems that Jude Law has acquired a taste for long, embroidered robes and mystical powers, because Variety reports that the Young Pope star has been cast as a young Dumbledore in the sequel to Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them. If Dumbledore will make his big comeback, The Fanstastic Animals 2 should also allow fans to discover Leta Lestrange played by Zoƫ Kravitz and Johnny Depp under the guise of Grindelwald!

The sequel will be directed by David Yates.

Toby Emmerich, president and chief content officer of the film's distributor Warner Bros Pictures, added: "As fans ourselves, we are thrilled to have Jude Law joining the Fantastic Beasts cast, playing a character so universally adored".

A release date has been pencilled in for late 2018, so there is a while to go until we get to find out how heavily their relationship will feature. Harris also played the part in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and Michael Gambon took over the character after Harris died in 2002.

The star is now about to hit the big screen as the evil wizard king Vortigern in King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, but can also play nice.

Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk officially revealed
Rounding it all up are the quad exhaust tips finished in Black Chrome and a unique rear valence painted in Gloss Black. The Trawkhawk also gets five driving modes: Automatic, Sport , Track , Tow , and Snow , and a custom mode.

"Harry Potter" author J.K. Rowling's script for this next movie will reportedly "move deeper into an increasingly dark time for the wizarding world, where Newt Scamander and our other heroes have to decide on their allegiances".

Law's most notable films include The Talented Mr Ripley, Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes movies, Enemy At The Gates, and The Holiday.

The eight Harry Potter movies made US$7 billion at the global box office.

The sequel is due to hit theatres on November 16 of next year.
