Katherine Waterston, who plays Tina in “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”, was already picked for another project. The film “The Current War” will be directed by Alfonso Gomez Rejon and the actress will work alongside Benedict Cumberbatch and Michael Shannon.

Set in the late 1880’s, the film shows the conflict between George Westinghouse and Thomas Edison, the “War of Currents”, a fight over which electricity distribution system was the best. While Edison thought of using direct current for electricity distribution, Westinghouse was of the opinion that an alternate current would be the best option.

“The Current War” shooting starts in 2017. But even before that, we will be able see Katherine Waterston in Alien: Paradise Lost.
