Celebrated filmmaker David Yates has cleared the air regarding the rumour, that he will be directing all the five sequels of the J.K Rowling's Fantastic Beasts. He said, at this point of time, he is not looking that much ahead.
Yates added, he is now only committed towards the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2, after the first part releases in November 18.
"It's lovely being part of it and I love doing it, how long will I stay with it? I'd like to say I want to stay with it for the whole thing. The only thing that makes my knees wobble a little bit is just the sheer volume." Yates said.
He added, "Five movies over eight years is a massive undertaking. So I have to be careful that I'm able to give everything. If there's any point in that period where I go, 'You know what, it might be wise to step away for a bit,' I would, to give someone else a shot."
After donning the final four chapters of Harry Potter films, Yates has returned for directing Fantastic Beasts. However, his official involvement has not been declared yet.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will feature Eddie Redmayne in the character of a magizoologist 'Newt Scamander' and will be supported stars like Colin Farrell, Katherine Waterston, Carmen Ejogo, Ezra Miller, Alison Sudol, Dan Fogler, Ron Perlman and Jon Voight.
