J K Rowling's Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them has gone from one film to three...

It's been a while now since Warner Bros announced that it was delving back into the world of Harry Potter. It had been revealed that J K Rowling was to pen a screenplay for Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, set in the world of Harry Potter but many decades before the character's own story. And she still is, but the plan now is to turn one film into a trilogy of them.

According to a piece in the New York Times, Warner Bros Pictures CEO Kevin Tsujihara has overseen an expansion of the plan, and now "three megamovies are planned", confirming that "the stories, neither prequels or sequels, will start in New York about seven decades before the arrival of Mr Potter and his pals".

It's unclear whether J K Rowling is writing all three screenplays herself, but as we hear more, we'll keep you updated...
