In a sensible move designed to establish some continuity between the new film and those that had gone before, Warner re-signed David Heyman to resume his position as producer, a slot he had occupied on all previous entries in the Potter saga.
“I can't talk really about it yet,” said Heyman, when asked about the new project recently. “All I can say is that it's great. Jo had no need to go back to this universe or world.”
“It's not Harry Potter per se, but the world of Harry. She's chosen to do so because she felt a need to tell a story. That she's doing it means that it's going to be very, very special.”
