A major round of applause and congratulations are in store for actress Zoe Kravitz who just landed herself another big screen gig.
Zoe Kravitz has joined the cast of Warner Bros. “Harry Potter” spinoff “Fantastic Beasts and “Where to Find Them.” The motion picture will star Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Ezra Miller and Alison Sudol, as well as Kravitz and it is set in New York City; 70 years before the events in the “Harry Potter” books and film series.
It will follow Newt Scamander (played by Redmayne), a Magizoologist who ventures into a secret community of witches and wizards as he attempts to document magical creatures. His book is eventually used at Hogwarts where Harry Potter ultimately attends school.
Zoe’s role is unknown at this time but it is expected to be bigger in the sequel, which the WB recently announced. David Yates is directing the film while Harry Potter writer J.K. Rowling wrote the screenplay for the upcoming project.
David Heyman, J.K. Rowling, Steve Kloves and Lionel Wigram are all set to produce while Neil Blair, Rick Senat and Danny Cohen will be executive producing.
The new films sound fresh and exciting and I for one can’t wait too see these prequels.
Zoe Kravitz is no stranger to making on-screen appearances either. Although her parents are musician Lenny Kravitz and actress Lisa Bonet, two legends in the Entertainment industry, Zoe has been working hard to create her own name and voice. Her film debut came in 2007 when she starred in the film “No Reservations” and followed that up with roles in “Californication”, “X-Men: First Class” and “X-Men: Days of Future Past” and both “Divergent” films.
Zoe Kravitz recently appeared as one of the muses in George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road.” She’ll appear next in the HBO series “Big Little Lies” with Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon and Shailene Woodley and also has the Sony film “Rock That Body.”
