Eddie Redmayne has confirmed they’ve started performing on the third “Fantastic Beasts” movie again for the primary time since the coronavirus lockdown.
Production on subsequent instalment of the wizarding fantasy was hit by a delay in 2019, because it’s “bigger” than the last two movies put together and that they didn’t want to “rush” it.
That was consistent with actor Dan Fogler – who plays Jacob Kowalski within the “Harry Potter” spin-off franchise – who revealed they intended to film “in the fall”.
He said at the time: “Yeah, we start within the Fall. The movie goes to be gigantic! the rationale we got is that the movie is greater than the primary two combined.
“They needed longer to prep and that they didn’t want to rush anything in order that they pushed it back.”
And after further delays thanks to Covid-19, Redmayne – who plays the leading role of magizoologist Newt Scamander – has revealed they’ve returned to the set of the follow-up to 2018’s “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald”.
Redmayne explained that the cast and crew are being tested for the virus “frequently”, while he admitted he was concerned that filming with masks would impact their “creativity”, but insisted everyone has been “working at the highest of their game”.
He told CinemaBlend.com: “It’s interesting because we’ve started shooting now. We’re fortnight in, and again, it is a whole new process.
“It’s an entire new normal. Testing frequently, masks. and that i wondered, actually, whether the masks would affect creativity, in some ways.
“Maybe that was a touch ignorant, but I just thought, as humans, can we need interaction to spark from one another .
“What is basically reassuring is that it’s a special process, but it still seems like it’s fizzing which most are performing at the highest of their game.”
The plot is predicted to specialise in the complex relationship between Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) and Dumbledore (Jude Law).
David Yates will direct with J.K. Rowling, David Heyman, Steve Kloves and Lionel Wigram producing again.
Award-winning author Rowling revealed back in June last year that she had started penning the script for “Fantastic Beasts 3”.
She tweeted: “I’ve just finished the fourth Galbraith novel, ‘Lethal White’, and i am now writing the screenplay for ‘Fantastic Beasts 3’.”
There are set to be five movies supported Scamander.
The first movie within the saga, “Fantastic Beasts and Where to seek out Them” came call at 2016.
