With Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 getting released next week, Warner Bros. is holding a big press junket today in London and I’m across the pond covering. Before going any further, you’re probably wondering if the film is any good. I’m happy to say, it’s great. And fans of the books are going to love it because it’s the first movie that has the time to tell the entire story, not just the highlights. More of my thoughts here.
Anyway, just a few hours ago I got to sit down with Harry Potter producer David Heyman and we discussed a number of subjects during my ten minute flip cam interview. If you’re curious about Deathly Hallows deleted scenes, if there will be more Potter movies, what’s up with Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity (Heyman is producing), and a lot more….hit the jump!
As one of the producers of the “Harry Potter” films, David Heyman has done the impossible – he made the beloved books work brilliantly as standalone movies. And the most recent – “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” – is getting some of the best reviews yet. In fact, many have called it the best of the series.
Anyway, while “Half-Blood Prince” has just been released, David and the “Potter” team have been hard at work for the past three months on the final film, which is being released as a two-parter in November 2010 and July 2011. Since he was cool to talk about everything, we spent almost thirty minutes discussing all three films.
After the jump you can read about changes from the book to the screen, deleted scenes, the running time for “Deathly Hallows”, will there be a trailer for part two on part one, how long will the final battle be in part two, what else he’s producing, and a lot more! It’s a great interview and a must-read if you’re a “Harry Potter” fan.
