Last I heard they wanted to do 2 separate movies, Part 1 at Thanksgiving and Part 2 at Christmas, but that was a long time ago.

Excellent casting for He Who Shall Not Be Named.  Next "big" part should be Prof. Moody.  Any ideas?

Here are a few other recent cast additions:
Brendan Gleeson ....  Mad-Eye Moody
Miranda Richardson ....  Rita Skeeter

They have also cast pretty much all the big kid roles (Krum, Fleur, Diggory) and the other School teachers as well, but they are pretty much no-name actors/actresses.

Don't cruise Potter sites too much but anyone have any scoop on their plan for Goblet?  2 Movies shot at the same time?  Large amounts of editing leaving lots of stuff out?

Last I read, they were dumping the two movies part.  Tis true they were planning a Kill Bill-esque Vol 1 and Vol2 , but I think WB decided that was too much watering down the HP franchise since they have to keep this thing rolling for at least 7 movies.

The current plan I believe is to dump a lot of the intro parts (World Cup Quiddich) into dialogue and skip the actually filming.  IE, Harry and Ron talk about how they went to the match, but we don't see it in the film.

Where are we now on the movie side of things?  With three out I cannot see the main characters being visually representative of children for much longer.  Ron looked huge, the difference between Harry in the first and third was dramatic and Hermione is turning into a teenager quite clearly.  They're going to need to film all four in a row if they are to pull it off with the same actors :-\

I believe Goblet of Fire is set for Thanksgiving next year and then as far as I know their contracts are up.  I guess I'm torn as to wether I want to see them go on for 5-6-7 or to have new people cast :-\

I'd like to see them stay, but they'd have to film them all at the same time to make it believable with respect to age.  I suppose that is subject to the desire of said actors and whether they want to continue.  Type casting is a danger, but they are young enough to overcome that.  I think.

I can still see that SNL skit with Lindsay Lohan (sp?) as Hermionie (Sp? again).  LOL!

I finally caught that SNL re-run a few months back, after unfortunately missing the original show.

Great stuff.  Love's me some Lindsey boobies.   8)



I think that wacky chick who played Harry was even better though.  Absolutely classic!

So who is the Half-Blood Prince?

I've heard that JK Rowling said it isn't Harry or Voldemort, so who then?

Hagrid?  He's Half Man, Half Giant, right?

Maybe its someone who was from the past, back from Harry's parents days.  There always seems to be a bit of fleshing out of the Voldemort/Potters/Black and crew story along with the current one

I think the Halfblood prince is some one new. I need to read Order of the Pheonix...I never had a chance to.
