Callum Turner has confirmed that he will return as Theseus Scamander in Fantastic Beasts 3, which still doesn’t have an official title.
The actor, who was introduced as Newt Scamander’s older brother in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald, was missing from the initial cast list and still doesn’t appear on the films IMDb page.
Talking to Yahoo about his new movie Emma, Turner confirmed that he’ll return for the third Fantastic Beasts film and revealed that he is due to begin shooting in “about six weeks” time. Turner didn’t reveal much else, but made sure to say that he hadn’t seen a script yet and still doesn’t know how big Theseus’ role will be.
The third instalment of the Fantastic Beasts series will take place mostly in Brazil, although Hogwarts and other locations are expected to be included. The film was initially expected to land this year, but was pushed back when Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald underperformed.
David Yates is once again returning to direct the film, with J.K Rowling and Steve Kloves writing the screenplay.
