At the premiere of “The Brothers Bloom”, actor Robbie Coltrane (Hagrid) talked about Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows:
So are you enjoying the downtime from Harry Potter?
I’m actually producing these days. I’ve got three things on the go. I’m trying to knock one of them out before we start filming Potter seven in February. There’s going to be downtime between film one and two. You know, they’re shooting it in two parts, so there’ll be a week or two in the middle
Each Harry Potter film seems to get bigger and bigger.
They were always written as another year in the children’s lives and they’re 17 now of course. So life has changed for them.
Romance is in the air. The threats get more and more threatening as his powers and knowledge and all of their powers and magic get stronger. They have to up the anti. The books are like that, that’s the way they’re written.
I can’t wait to see what they’re going to do with Deathly Hallows, how about you?
