Gravity's Alfonso Cuaron to direct Harry Potter spin-off
Prisoner Of Azkaban director Alfonso Cuaron may be returning for the first Harry Potter spin-off movie...
With an Oscar under his belt for his directorial work on last year's Gravity, Alfonso Cuaron may now be returning to the franchise where he made a substantive mark. For it's being reported that he's in talks with Warner Bros to direct the first Harry Potter spin-off movie, Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them.
The screenplay for Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them is being penned by J K Rowling, based around a textbook that the students at Hogwarts use. The film is planned as the first in a new trilogy, albeit set 70 years before Harry Potter And The Philosopher's Stone.
Alfonso Cuaron is the man generally regarded as having made the best directed - if not the best - of the Potter films. He took charge of the third one, Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban, and was earmarked to return for a later film too.
