I haven’t read a single page of Attack on Titan, nor have I seen anything beyond a trailer for the anime or the Japanese live-action film from a few years ago. However, I have heard from the fans of this action/horror/science fiction series, who insist that it is excellent and worthy of my time. Now that Warner Bros. is currently looking to secure the rights to a new version with Harry Potter series producer David Heyman on board, it may finally be time to check it out.

David Heyman has been with the Harry Potter film franchise since its very beginning, producing all eight films released from 2001 through 2011. Now he’s back for the spinoff, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which is slated to run for a total of five films. In an interview with /Film, Heyman discussed how the project got going, working with J.K. Rowling, the unusual new hero, and the scary appeal of Grindelwald. Plus, a minor update on his Willy Wonka movie. Read our Fantastic Beasts David Heyman interview below.

Even though Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) was the main character in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, that doesn’t necessarily mean he will be in the four impending sequels that are set to cover 19 years of narrative time in the wizarding world.
In a recent conversation, franchise producer David Heyman confirmed that Mr. Scamander won’t always be at the center of each movie. Honestly, that’s probably for the best.

We’re still over a week out from seeing Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them hit theaters, but we already know that Johnny Depp will be playing the pivotal role of the villain Grindelwald, a dark wizard whom Harry Potter fans will be very familiar with. In fact, he’ll be making a brief appearance in the first movie, and his conflict with Hogwarts professor Albus Dumbledore will be a key part of the sequel with casting for the latter role currently underway.
Since Johnny Depp was cast in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2 (which will likely have a different title when all is said and done), some fans haven’t been too happy with his casting. After all, Depp hasn’t been turning in the best work as of late, and his career has turned into a bit of a joke. So how did we end up getting Johnny Depp in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2? Find out after the jump. Read More »

A few weeks ago, we got word of another Willy Wonka movie in the works from Warner Bros., with Harry Potter‘s David Heyman producing. So naturally, when I had the chance to sit down with Heyman at the recent Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them junket, I had to ask him about it.
During our conversation, Heyman offered a minor status update, offering hints about what the movie might be (hint: not a remake), and explaining why he wanted to make a new Willy Wonka movie in the first place. Read More »
