Will there be EIGHT Harry Potter movies?


Just because J.K. Rowling managed to finish the Harry Potter saga in seven volumes doesn't mean filmmakers have to follow her cue.

Although nothing is official yet, the early word is that the last book in the series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, will be broken out into two movies, in part to accomodate the whopping 776 pages of plot Rowling crammed into the book - and in part, no doubt, to maximize the profits from the franchise by a few hundred million dollars more.

It would be great, though, if the rumor about enlisting Steven Spielberg to direct the last film turns out to be true.

I doubt this will ever happen. I do hope at least that they make the final film 3 hours so they can at least put in most of the important plot details in there and give this franchise the grand finale it deserves. As for Spielberg, hmmm don't know about that one. I'd rather see Guillermo Del Toro do it.


Rene, did you ever want to make movies yourself? Surely you must have some creative stories in your head that you'd like to see in film. What made you decide to be a critic?
