MTV News Correspondent Josh Horowitz brings us the latest development in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them news:

Heyman, who produced all eight of the Harry Potter films, spoke to Entertainment Weekly about the upcoming film. Heyman speaks to Rowling’s immense knowledge of her own world and clearly indicates his respect for her creation:

“When I was doing the Harry Potters, what was clear to me is that Jo’s knowledge of this world is infinite. What you read in the books was just the surface of her knowledge. She had notebook upon notebook of stuff. I would call her and say, ˜What’s the sixth use of dragon’s blood?’ and she’d have it at her fingertips.”

The Leaky Cauldron is not associated with J.K. Rowling, Warner Bros., or any of the individuals or companies associated with producing and publishing Harry Potter books and films.
