Johnny Depp (Gellert Grindelwald) confirmed he will be back as Gellert Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts 3.
As the title reveals, Johnny Depp (Grindelwald) has just confirmed that he will reprise his villainous role as Gellert Grindelwald in the third instalment of the Fantastic Beasts film series.
As you probably already know (and can’t await!) the second film, The Crimes of Grindelwald, will be released on November 16, but producers are clearly already looking ahead to the next film in J.K. Rowling’s latest wizarding movie series. Johnny confirmed his involvement in the as-yet-untitled third film in a new interview, telling Collider that he and his fellow castmates will begin production on Fantastic Beasts 3 ‘in the middle of next year’. The actor said he relished the challenge of playing a villain in a fictional realm where ‘the possibilities… are wide open, so you can really try anything.’
The first images of Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) in Broadway show “The Lifespan of a Fact” have been revealed.
Finally, production stills of Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) in his upcoming Broadway project The Lifespan of a Fact have been revealed. The Broadway show is based on the provocative true story of John D’Agata’s essay, “What Happens There,” about the Las Vegas suicide of teenager Levi Presley. Jim Fingal, assigned to fact check the piece, ignited a seven-year debate on the blurred lines of what passes for truth in literary nonfiction.
Opening night is Thursday, October 18, 2018. The production will play a limited 16-week engagement at Studio 54 on Broadway.

Actor Johnny Depp (Gellert Grindelwald) speaks out on his casting of Grindelwald for the first time and defends J.K. Rowling.
After being criticized for the casting of Gellert Grindelwald in the upcoming Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald movie, Johnny Depp (Grindelwald) finally spoke out to Entertainment Weekly. A few months ago, the creator of the Harry Potter universe, J.K. Rowling had defended Johnny’s casting as Grindeldwald, and just now it had been Johnny’s turn to defend J.K. Rowling’s comments about his casting.
J.K. had had justified Johnny’s inclusion in the film following allegations of physical abuse made by Johnny’s ex-wife Amber Heard. She issued a statement in December 2017 saying: “The film-makers and I are not only comfortable sticking with our original casting, but [are] genuinely happy to have Johnny playing a major character in the movies.”
In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly to promote the film, Johnny said:
“I’ll be honest … I felt bad for J.K. having to field all these various feelings from people out there … But ultimately, there is real controversy. The fact remains I was falsely accused … J.K. has seen the evidence and therefore knows I was falsely accused, and that’s why she has publicly supported me.”

Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) admits he’d reached a point in his Harry Potter career in which he’d considered leaving the franchise.
Yes, it’s true. In the most recent interview of Rupert (Ron Weasley), he has opened up on a moment in which he considered leaving the Harry Potter franchise. No doubt the series helped Rupert gain a lot of experience and reputation when it comes to acting. But the huge fame that came with the job seemingly left Rupert reconsidering his future with it. In that interview, he revealed that after Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire – the fourth of the eight films – he thought about throwing in his wand.
“I had just finished my GCSEs,” he told The Independent. “I thought ‘Do I actually want to keep doing this? It’s a bit of a drag.’
“Because obviously it’s a big sacrifice. You take for granted anonymity, just doing normal stuff, just going out.”
He added: “Everything was different and a little bit scary. There were times when I was like ‘I’m done.’”
Warner Bros. released the final poster for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald showing Grindelwald’s (Johnny Depp) while the rest of the cast surrounds him. The poster was released in several languages of which we uploaded the English version to our photo gallery.

Emma Watson was seen on set of Little Women on October 07, 2018.
As the title says, Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) was spotted filming scenes for her upcoming movie project Little Women in Boston on October 07, in which she’s playing Meg March.
The movie is an adaption of Louisa May Alcott’s seminal novel, which turned 150 earlier this year. In order to capture the authentic feeling of 1868 Boston, filmmakers laid down a layer of dirt on a portion of Dartmouth Street near where it intersects Marlborough Street.
Alongside Emma, Little Women is set to star actress Meryl Streep, Timothee Chalamet, Laura Dern, and Saoirse Ronan, and will be directed by Greta Gerwig. The film is scheduled to shoot from October through December in Boston, Concord, Ipswich, Lawrence, and the Lexington/Burlington area, and is slated to hit theaters December 25, 2019.
As the titles says, we added 4 new promotional images for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald to the photo gallery. The images feature Jude Law (Albus Dumbledore), Eddie Redmayne (Newt Scamander), Ezra Miller (Credence Barebone) and Callum Turner (Theseus Scamander).
Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood) opens up about her eating disorder and tells how the Harry Potter saga helped her overcome the disease.
Evanna (Luna Lovegood) and her Dancing With the Stars partner Keo Motsepe are bringing the Harry Potter magic to the ballroom by dancing the Viennese Waltz to the tune of the iconic “Hedwig’s Theme.” Before taking the stage next week, ET’s Katie Krause was with Evanna and Keo at their DWTS rehearsal on Thursday, where Evanna reflected on how the famous franchise helped her with her body issues and overcome an eating disorder.
“I believe on raising awareness on this issue and it’s very healing for me to talk about this stuff,” she confessed. “I wanted to talk about how before Harry Potter, I was quite sick, and how the Harry Potter books really helped me through an eating disorder. And the reason I wanted to talk about it on here, it’s really healing for me… That is the full story, that’s the only kind of honest way to tell it, and that’s why it was so special because it was the only kind of light that I saw in the world at a very dark time.”
Adding that getting her Harry Potter role was a “fairy tale,” she however, doesn’t want her story to be sensationalized and for people to think that her mental issues were “cured” just because she got the part.
