Deathly Hallows two film rumour
It seems that a British Sunday paper has been suggesting that Harry Potter's last book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, is to be made into two films and not one.
The reasoning is that there's so much plot in the final book that it just wouldn't fit into one film and that the decision has been made for artistic reasons...something Hollywood hardly ever does these days!
Meanwhile Empire, who quote the story in the Mail on Sunday, say that this can't be true as, when they contacted Warner Bros., they said that no decision had been made on the story as yet.
Of course there hasn't, after all the next film, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, won't be seen until later this year, November to be exact, so it's a fair thing to say that the film isn't finished as yet.
They also find out that Steve Kloves, the screenwriter for the series, has yet to start the script for the final book and with the Writers strike on the go and him being a member, it seems that he won't be writing any time soon.
So we can calm down on the rumour mill for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, but it does raise an interesting question, should Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows be split into two films, or should it be treated like the other novels and condensed down into a manageable single film? Can it even be condensed down?
