The Mad Max: Fury Road star has joined a cast that includes Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, and Ezra Miller.


Redmayne will play Newt Scamander in the film, set 70 years before the Harry Potter books and film series, and sources tell The Hollywood Reporter Zoe, who was added after production began, will have a small role in the first film, now in post-production and a more substantial part in the sequel.
