Post 'Fantastic Beasts' 3 set to begin filming in July 2019, as per Ezra Miller's schedule

While the release of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is still a few weeks away, news is already out that production for the third installment in J.K. Rowling's saga is set to begin production next July.

This news came about as part of actor Ezra Miller's scheduling issues regarding reprising his role for Warner Bros.' solo Flash movie, whose production has been pushed to sometime in 2020 due to his commitment to Fantastic Beasts 3.

A primary issue: Ezra Miller, who portrayed the Flash in Justice League (2017), and is tabbed to reprise the role, is already locked-in for duty in another high-profile Warner Bros. project. That other project is Fantastic Beasts, the spin-off franchise rooted in the magical mythology of Harry Potter. Miller plays Credence Barebone in the wizarding world and is needed on set in July to start work on a third Fantastic Beasts installment.
This aligns with what Johnny Depp stated days ago, where he revealed during a junket that he will start work on Fantastic Beasts 3 sometime next summer.

This does, at the very least, and to no surprise, confirm that Depp's and Miller's respective characters, Grindelwald and Credence Barebone, will return for Rowling's third movie of five. Rowling is currently writing the script for Fantastic Beasts 3. David Yates has yet to confirm his return to the third movie but it is assumed he will direct it.

Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” is the second of five all new adventures in J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World™.

At the end of the first film, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) was captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America), with the help of Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne). But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escaped custody and has set about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings.

In an effort to thwart Grindelwald’s plans, Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) enlists his former student Newt Scamander, who agrees to help, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world.

The film features an ensemble cast led by Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, ZoŽ Kravitz, Callum Turner, Claudia Kim, William Nadylam, Kevin Guthrie, Carmen Ejogo, Poppy Corby-Tuech, with Jude Law and Johnny Depp.

“Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” is directed by David Yates, from a screenplay by J.K. Rowling. The film is produced by David Heyman, J.K. Rowling, Steve Kloves and Lionel Wigram. Tim Lewis, Neil Blair, Rick Senat and Danny Cohen serve as executive producers.

The film reunites the behind-the-scenes creative team from the first “Fantastic Beasts” film, including Oscar-winning director of photography Philippe Rousselot (“A River Runs Through It”), three-time Oscar-winning production designer Stuart Craig (“The English Patient,” “Dangerous Liaisons,” “Gandhi,” the “Harry Potter” films), four-time Oscar-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood (“Chicago,” “Memoirs of a Geisha,” “Alice in Wonderland,” “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”), and Yates’ longtime editor Mark Day (the last four “Harry Potter” films). The music is by eight-time Oscar nominee James Newton Howard (“Defiance,” “Michael Clayton,” “The Hunger Games” films).

Slated for release on November 16, 2018, the film will be distributed worldwide in 2D and 3D in select theatres and IMAX by Warner Bros. Pictures.

This film is rated PG-13 for some sequences of fantasy action.
