Deadline has just revealed that Johnny Depp will be joining the cast of Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them in a co-starring role in the next film. David Yates will start filming early next year with Eddie Redmayne in the lead role of Newt Scamander. There is no word on his character but Mike Fleming writes that: “if you look carefully, you might spot him in a tiny turn in the first instalment.”
