JUDE LAW will play the young version of Albus Dumbledore in the sequel to “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”.
That puts him in an interesting storyline with JOHNNY DEPP, who plays Gellert Grindelwald . . . a childhood friend of Dumbledore’s who becomes an evil wizard.
Rowling is writing the script, and the four main actors are all coming back. That’s Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, and Dan Fogler. It’s coming in November of 2018.
