Last 'Harry Potter' Book Becomes 2 Films
March 12, 2008, 6:15 PM EST
NEW YORK (AP) Harry Potter was the center of seven novels, but he'll star in eight films.

The final book in the wildly successful series will be made into two films, the Los Angeles Times reported Wednesday.

Producers are expected to announce Thursday that J.K. Rowling's last "Potter" installment, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," will be split into two parts on the big screen. The first film is slated for release in November, 2010, with part two following in May 2011.

"It was born out of purely creative reasons," producer David Heyman told the Times. "Unlike every other book, you cannot remove elements of this book."

Filming began in September on the sixth "Potter" flick, "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince."

"It's been brilliant," said star Daniel Radcliffe. "It's also, I think, the funniest of the films so far."

The "Potter" film franchise has pulled in $4.5 billion at the worldwide box office.

I'm so psyched!

EDIT: This poster turned out to be fan-made. Boo, hiss. I want a real one! (which hopefully will be better than this one, which was kinda lame!) I'm hoping for a whole "Who is the Half-Blood Prince?" campaign. If Warner Brothers DOESN'T do that, they're crazy!

A couple of updates

Movie Casting News

From Mugglenet:
CBBC Newsround has announced that Helen McCrory will play the part of Narcissa Malfoy in the sixth Potter flick, Half-Blood Prince. Apparently, WB has "been after" McCrory for some time.

You may remember that McCrory was originally cast as Bellatrix Lestrange in Order of the Phoenix but was unable to fulfill the role due to her pregnancy.

(Note: that would have been ridiculous. No one but HBC could ever have been Bellatrix!)

JKR News

From Mugglenet:
Once again, JK Rowling is up for consideration as TIME's Person of the Year. TIME is looking for input from their visitors via a poll, where you can rank ten candidates from least favorite to most favorite. They also have pros and cons for rating Jo:

Pro: Finished a seven-book epic that will be read by children (and lots of adults) for generations to come. Slowly creeping up on Agatha Christie as the most read author not named Shakespeare.

Con: Seventh book wasn't her best, and hard to argue she was the most important person of 2007.

(Note: suck it, TIME Magazine.)
