The famed British author, 49, and Yates, 50, who directed the final four Potter films, have signed on to the new Warner Brothers trilogy, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, based off of Rowling’s Potter textbook of the same name. 

“Good luck to ‘em,” Radcliffe, 25, said on the red carpet at the premiere. “At the moment the thought of signing on to another three would be crazy to me. It’s a lot to take on again so soon after he’s finished [Potter].”
