‘Gravity’ director Alfonso Cuaron has shot down rumours he is heading back to the Harry Potter franchise to helm the forthcoming spin-off, ‘Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them’.

Reports emerged last week suggesting the Mexican filmmaker, who oversaw Harry Potter and the ‘Prisoner of Azkaban’, had become a frontrunner to helm the film adaptation of author JK Rowling’s 2001 wizard story, reported Contactmusic.

However, Cuaron has now denied the rumour. “It was a very beautiful experience for me. I have a lot of love for that universe and I tremendously admire JK Rowling, but today, for the present, projects based around lots of visual effects don’t attract me. I’m coming out of a five-year process of doing visual effects and now I sort of want to clean my palate of that a little bit,” he said.

‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ is set for release in November 2016.
