4 Of 4 When Should We Expect This Spin-Off?
Author J.K. Rowling claims the movie wouldn't have happened without Kevin Tsujihara.
"When I say he made Fantastic Beasts happen, it isn't P.R.-speak but the literal truth. We had one dinner, a follow-up telephone call, and then I got out the rough draft that I'd thought was going to be an interesting bit of memorabilia for my kids and started rewriting!"
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them does not yet have a production start date, but it will come to theaters sometime in 2015.
