Jude Law cast as Dumbledore in Fantastic Beasts sequels

Jude Law cast as Dumbledore in Fantastic Beasts sequels”

British actor and Academy Award nominee Jude Law will play a young Albus Dumbledore in the next film in the Fantastic Beasts franchise, a spin-off of the Harry Potter series of books and films.

Law's character will be cast against actor Johnny Depp's, who was revealed to be the infamous wizard Gellert Grindelwald in the first film, reports Hollywoodreporter.com.

The sequel will be directed by David Yates.

Toby Emmerich, President and CCO of Warner Bros.

The Fantastic Beasts sequel takes place when Dumbledore is still the transfiguration professor at Hogwarts, long before he becomes the headmaster or meets Harry Potter.

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. The iconic wizard was played by two actors in the "Harry Potter" films, beginning with Richard Harris.

J.K. Rowling, who made her screenwriting debut with the first Fantastic Beasts film, has also written the screenplay for the second movie, which is set to explore an "increasingly dark time for the wizarding world, where Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) and our other heroes have to decide on their allegiances".

The upcoming Beasts sequel will show Dumbledore "decades before he became headmaster at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry", the Pottermore website said Wednesday in announcing Law's casting. "I am really looking forward to working with him, but I already know that he Will capture all facets of Albus Dumbledore's personality in this period of his life revealed by JK Rowling".

Countdown to the release of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2 with the The Movie Hype App.

Law most recently appeared in Paolo Sorrentino's small screen drama "The Young Pope", which aired on HBO.
