Could you handle a certain model as the star of the film?

We know that The Theory of Everything actor Eddie Redmayne is in talks to star in J.K. Rowling's upcoming film Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, but a pretty surprising addition has joined these oh-so-important talks. 

Now, this isn't a for sure type of situation and talks are still ongoing, but Upton's rising celebrity profile and recent acting…um…endeavours make her a likely candidate. 

J.K Rowling has reportedly finished the script for Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, and it seems, (at least for now) that model turned actress, Kate is a front runner to star in the film. Of course Dakota Fanning and Saoirse Ronan's names have also been tossed around. 

WE SHALL SEE, KIDS. WE SHALL SEE.
