Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Recommended Posts

Rumor is that they will split the last book into two movies.

Harry Potter fans are set to get a double treat in the film of the final story – and movie makers are set to double their money.

Crew working on the sixth Potter film, Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince, have been told J.K. Rowling's seventh novel, Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows, will be released in two halves.

For film-makers Warner Bros, whose first five Potter films have made £2.5billion in box office receipts – more than any other movie series – it could mean a £500million bonus in ticket sales.

But sources insist the reason behind the two-movie plan is artistic rather than financial.

The books got progressively longer – the first, the Philosopher's Stone, had 223 pages while Deathly Hallows has 776 – and fans have complained chunks of later novels have been left out of films.

A film source said: "There's so much to fit that the view is the last movie should be in two halves. There is a huge battle when Harry, played by Daniel Radcliffe, takes on Voldemort that needs to be done really well."

And Ms Rowling points out on her website: "It is simply impossible to incorporate every storyline into a film under four hours long."

At Warner Bros, who are rumoured to be thinking of Oscars and a big-name director such as Steven Spielberg for the final film, a spokesman said: "People are discussing all possibilities."

Fine by me. I've liked all five movies to this point, so the more story they can fit into the films, the better.

Much of Deathly Hallows felt like sheer filler to me, so I think this isn't going to add anything creatively. I'd find it interesting if they moved certain parts of The Half-Blood Prince to this, though, because there's so much backstory in Prince that I'm worried that too much will get cut from it.

Yeah, 'cause that whole "Look, we're in an invisible tent for months" deal really needs at least 45 minutes in the film, its pivotal.
