Not only have great stars like Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Ezra Miller, Dan Fogler, and Alison Sudol all already signed onto the Warner Bros. flick, but now we’ve got a new star in the mix!

Fresh off his turn on the HBO hit series, True Detective, none other than Colin Farrell will be tapping into his magical powers to play a wizard in the flick!

The film centers on Newt Scamander — played by Redmayne — and follows him on his adventures through the secret world of witches and wizards as he does his best to document magical creatures! The film is also supposed to take place about 70 years before Harry Potter reads the book that Newt ends up writing!

If that doesn’t excite you enough, the script for the film will be written by the Potter-verse creator herself, J.K. Rowling and directed by David Yates — the director of the last four HP movies! Oh yeah, and did we mention it’s closer than you may think since it’s due to hit theaters November 18, 2016!
