Cuaron: "I sort of want to clean my palate of that a little bit"

Gravity director Alfonso Cuarón has denied rumours that he will be helming the forthcoming Harry Potter spin-off, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

The 52-year-old filmmaker, who directed Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, has denied rumours that he will be returning to the successful movie franchise.

Speaking to Spanish news agency Efe, Cuarón said: "It was a very beautiful experience for me. I have a lot of love for that universe and I tremendously admire J.K. 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."

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