Fantastic Beasts 3 filming start postponed due to coronavirus fears

The studio was ready for the filming of Fantastic Beasts 3 was set to start Monday 16th March,
but Deadline.com reported on Sunday that coronavirus fears have put production on hiatus.
It has yet to be determined when shoots will resume. We don't know yet if this affects
the release date. The movie is set to open on November 12, 2021.

It's very important to slow down the spread of the highly infectious virus, 
which caused a huge crisis in the World. Please stay safe, stay at home!
Do your best to prevent the illness, follow the rules, wash your hands
often, go to self-isolation. Make good use of your home time, and take
long naps! Don't panic! Everything will be alright.

According to the article Eddie is set to play the title character in “Jacob Marley,”
the Disney Scrooge movie to be written and directed by Oscar winner,
Bill Condon. The film is a  re-telling of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol”
told through the eyes of Scrooge’s business partner. I hope this will happen.
This can be Eddie's next project after The Good Nurse.

P.S.: Eddie, you too take care of yourself, please stay at home!(x)

Happy 2nd Birthday Luke!

Happy second Birthday to Eddie's son Luke Richard Bagshawe Redmayne!

I hope he had a wonderful time, even better than the day when
the little family went to the Big Apple Circus in December.

Luke's face is hidden behind the blue winking heart.

Amy Gordon @amygforce posted on Instagram: “The incomparable Eddie Redmayne
dropped in to see the show with his charming family. His adorable kid spent most of
the show teething on the pretty boards and the rest of us drooled in his direction
(in sympathy, and all due respect.) What an honor to play for these outstanding artists!”

More from the new OPPO video

In the new OPPO commercial, Eddie talks about his process of getting into character
He's a new OPPO Global Brand Ambassador. The video premiered on Friday at
the online launch of the new Find X Series. (I made the gifs from the video here

"In the early stages for me it's always just about looking for a way in."

"And the wonderful bit is the research."

"You sorta need to explore the fundamentals, and once it's properly in you,
then you can begin to colour it in. and make the detail a little more curious."

"I always think it's a bit like learning to play a tune. Until you
have the lines in your bones, you're not really able to be free."

"The reason actors do plays for months at a time is
because you never quite get it right."

"You're always looking, hoping, striving... to find more."

"Believe in what you don't yet know! Find more!"
