Connect with us

Dumbledore has been cast for the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them sequel, and Jude Law has been chosen.

The 44-year-old actor takes the mantel from Michael Gambon, who portrayed the character for the last six Harry Potter movies. Gambon replaced Richard Harris, who passed away after completing the first two films.

Christian Bale, Benedict Cumberbatch, Mark Strong, Harris’ son Jared Harris and “every major British actor in the biz” was considered for the role, according to Variety. Leave it to the Young Pope to come out on top.

“Jude Law is a phenomenally talented actor whose work I have long admired, and I’m looking forward to finally having the opportunity to work with him,” director David Yates said. “I know he will brilliantly capture all the unexpected facets of Albus Dumbledore as J.K. Rowling reveals this very different time in his life.”

Law is best known for his roles in The Talented Mr. Ripley and Sherlock Holmes. He has recently had roles in HBO’s The Young Pope, the Melissa McCarthy comedy Spy and The Grand Budapest Hotel. He’ll next be seen in Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend of the Sword starring Charlie Hunnam on May 12.

Law joins a returning Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterson, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller and Johnny Depp in the sequel set for release on November 16, 2018. Yates and J.K. Rowling return as director and screenwriter respectively.

Need For Speed Heat Australian release date Is November 8

The Need For Speed Heat Australian release date is November 8 2019. The game will be published by Electronic Arts and comes developed by Ghost Games. The game will be available on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

EA says “The game deepens and expands everything Need for Speed  fans love – expressive customisation, authentic urban car culture, and an immersive narrative that pulls you into the game.”

What is Need For Speed Heat about?

Need for Speed Heat sends fans to Palm City, a brand-new open world where street racers have gathered to make their names known. By day, players compete in the Speedhunters Showdown, a sanctioned competition where they earn Bank to customise and upgrade their garage of high-performance cars. At night, players risk it all to build their Rep in underground races where a rogue police task force roams the streets, ready to take racers down and swipe all their earnings. The roads, the risks, and the rides never end in this street racer where a player can roll deep with their crew, build their garage full of hot cars, and make the city their nonstop playground.

Riley Cooper, Creative Director at Ghost Games said “Our fans have been clear that they want more cars, more customisation, and more challenges, and we’re tuning up on every aspect. From your character’s style to your car’s performance and your driving style, we’re fuelling everyone’s creativity with this new game.”
