Filmmaker David Yates is in final negotiations to return to the Harry Potter franchise for the forthcoming spin-off, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Yates, who directed the final four installments of the blockbuster series, has been tapped to helm the film adaptation of author J.K. Rowling’s 2001 wizard story, according to Variety.

Gravity director Alfonso Cuaron, who directed Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, was previously linked to the job, but he denied involvement with the project earlier this year.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will also film at the Warner Studios Leavesden site in England, where the entire Potter franchise was filmed. It is set for a November 2016 release.
