Fantastic Beasts 2 Casting Continues: Meet Newt Scamander's Brother

Callum Turner

Reactions to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them felt a little muted a year ago, but that didn't stop the first Harry Potter spin-off from making $814 million worldwide.

The latest casting news in the Potterverse has been announced with Green Room star Callum Turner being in negotiations to play the brother of Newt Scamander in the forthcoming sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

Besides the fact that Callum Turner is playing Newt Scamander's brother, there isn't much more information about his character at this time, including his actual name. The ambitious plans to make four sequels and further bridge the gap between the first movie the rest of the Potter series has continued apace, with J.K. Rowling penning the sequel for returning director David Yates, who has already cast Jude Law as a young Albus Dumbledore in the sequel.

Rowling, who wrote the screenplay for "Fantastic Beasts", will also write the script for the the second installment. Theseus was alluded to in the original Fantastic Beasts film, although he never actually appeared. Neil Blair, Rick Senat and Danny Cohen are serving as executive producers.

Turner most recently played Nathan in Fox's "Assassin's Creed", which went on to gross $421 million worldwide. He is represented by WME and Curtis Brown Group.
