The Irish actor is joining Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler and Alison Sudol in J.K. Rowling’s screenwriting debut.

THR exclusively revealed this morning that Colin Farrell has been cast by Warner Bros. in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Not much was revealed about his character other than the fact that he is named Graves and that he is a wizard that meets lead man Newt Scamander in New York.

The cast of the movie keeps growing as film is suspected to have begun in the U.K. this month. The film is expected to shoot both in London and New York between now and January 2016, aiming for a release in November next year.
