In a new interview with The Telegraph
, David Heyman discusses how Eddie Redmayne was their first and only choice and how a new adventure is beginning.
We’d found that new adventure we were looking for, and our own had begun. For all the enthusiasm we had in revisiting the world of Harry Potter, it did not come without hesitation. We were aware that some might view it as a cynical land-grab to milk an extra buck. No question, the film would not have been financed were it not thought that it might be profitable, but the decision to make it was borne out of a passion for this world and a boundless desire to return to it.
