Farrell is an Irish actor, currently starring in HBO’s “True Detective” and known for his roles in “Saving Mr. Banks,” “Daredevil,” “Total Recall” and more. According to the Hollywood Reporter, his character Graves meets Newt Scamander, who will be played by Eddie Redmayne.
The movie’s title is a reference to the book Scamander pens within the canon of Harry Potter. A real life version of the book, penned by Rowling, was released as a companion novel to the series in 2001. The movie will take place 70 years before the Harry Potter books and films begin, with Scamander traveling the world to document the magical creatures he meets.
The Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them movie adaptation is scheduled to release in theaters on November 18 of next year. This will be the first in “at least” a trilogy of films, all penned by J.K. Rowling herself. They will be directed by David Yates and produced by David Heyman.
