The film producer has revealed he has come up with “a really good idea” for the third instalment of the series alongside actor Robert Downey Jr. – who plays the protagonist in the films – and his wife, director Susan Downey, having previously brought the detective to the big screen with 2009’s ‘Sherlock Holmes‘ and 2011’s ‘Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows’
He said: “We’re working on it. I think we have a really good idea, a good concept for it, and we’re working on it with Robert and Susan and everybody. We’ve had many, many meetings and we have a really good writer who is engaged. »

Over the past few years, producer Lionel Wigram has been involved in a number of films we’ve all enjoyed like the final Harry Potter movies, Sherlock Holmes, and Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows. With his great working relationship with directorGuy Ritchie, it wasn’t a surprise to see Wigram hard at work on the London set of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. when I visited the movie during its shoot along with a few other reporters. When our group sat down with Wigram, he talked about his working relationship with Ritchie, how they had talked about doing a spy movie a decade ago, why they wanted to do an origin story, casting, sequels, and so much more. If you’re curious how a movie really gets made and want to hear some great behind-the-scenes stories on the making of The Man from U.N.C.L.E., you’re in the right place. »

Katherine Waterston (Inherent Vice) will star opposite Eddie Redmayne in Warner Bros. Pictures’ much-anticipated adventure Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, set in J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World. The announcement was made today by Greg Silverman, President of Creative Development and Worldwide Production, Warner Bros. Pictures.
Waterston will play the pivotal role of Tina, short for Porpentina, a witch who—unlike the beloved characters from Rowling’s Harry Potter books – works her magic in the U.S. She meets magizoologist Newt Scamander (Redmayne) when he stops in New York City on his travels to find and document magical creatures.

Guy Ritchie is a curious fit for the spy genre – in his past films, the British helmer has gotten down and dirty with London’s lowlifes, duked it out with fast-talking thugs and turned Baker Street’s best into a bone-crunching badass. So in watching the new trailer for his spin on The Man From U.N.C.L.E., it’s thrilling to see how Ritchie has taken to the slick, stylish world of upper-class espionage, complete with gorgeous period wear and lush locales. Of course, there are still some hard-hitting fight scenes, including one in a dingy bathroom, but the film seems more Bond than bruiser for the most part.
That’s not a bad thing – with the excellent cast he’s enlisted here, Ritchie has all the materials to make a thrilling spy film. Henry Cavill stars as CIA Agent Solo, who is forced to partner with a Russian agent named »

Henry Cavill might not be James Bond but he does have a licence to kill in the new trailer for The Man from Uncle.
Director Guy Ritchie has rebooted the classic spy series for the big screen in a thriller that blends action and comedy.
Set against the Cold War in the 1960s, two intelligence agents (Cavill and Armie Hammer) from the United Network Command for Law and Enforcement agency join forces to oppose an international terror organisation.
Agents Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin are aided in their mission by their pipe-smoking and stern supervisor Mr Waverly (Hugh Grant).

Former Timelord Matt Smith is rumored to be in contention for the lead role in Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them. According to a report (via MTV News), the Doctor Who star is “tipped for the role” after Benedict Cumberbatch apparently turned it down. The two sources cited in MTV’s post – The Sun and the Irish Examiner – don’t boast the best track record when it comes to solid intel, but there is still the possibility that Smith may indeed be in talks.
Should this rumor bear any weight, then Smith will be tackling the role of Newt Scamander, an author whose work is heavily referenced throughout the Potterverse. J.K. Rowling penned the script for the upcoming movie based on her own story, which is set in the same wizarding world that first spawned Harry Potter. Those hoping for cheeky cameos from franchise favorites will be sorely disappointed, »

After 8 movies, Warner Bros. is not ready to let go of the very lucrative Harry Potter franchise anytime soon. They are already planning a series of spinoffs, which begin in November 2016 with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. As an added bonus, the screenplays are being written by creator of this universe herself, J.K. Rowling. In fact, quite a few franchise creatives are returning as well, including producer David Heymann. He recently spoke with Collider about shooting the Fantastic Beasts series, as production ramps up on the first film.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them takes place years before Harry Potter arrived at Hogwarts. And it follows Newt Scamander as he creates a textbook on his journeys around the globe, looking for new and unusual creatures. While it's not a direct sequel, it certainly should feel like a Harry Potter movie, with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows director David Yates returning. »
When the Harry Potter series made its final bow in 2011, it was almost a bygone conclusion that Warner Bros. would pursue new stories to tell within J.K. Rowling’s rich universe of witchcraft and wizardry. After all, the story of the boy wizard matured into the most successful film franchise in all of cinema, so when news of a Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them spinoff arrived, not many were too surprised.
And despite taking place in a different time period, the adjacent series has attracted a lot of Harry Potter alumni as it inches its way closer to release. With the likes of David Yates and producer David Heyman already onboard, fans can rest assured that the new-fangled franchise is in good hands. And today brings news of another of the Potter vanguard joining the ranks: production designer Stuart Craig.
In an interview with Collider, Heyman confirmed Craig’s place in the crew, »
