The Hollywood Reporter has announced that Callum Turner is set to start in the next Fantastic Beasts movie.
He'll move another level up as the older brother of Eddie Redmayne's Newt Scamander in Warner Bros.' Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them sequel, now shooting at London's Leavesden Studios (where Turner spots Tom Cruise, at work on the next Mission: Impossible). His character, Theseus Scamander, is a war hero and a British Auror.
He says he'd never met Redmayne until he auditioned for the Fantastic Beasts sequel, but they actually have a lot in common: "We grew up about seven minutes from each other, but never saw each other. If you’re from exactly the same spot in the world, I guess there’s an energy that’s similar." Plus, they live in the same part of town now as adults.
