A reader wrote in with a completely unconfirmed scoop, but its an interesting one. The reader who goes by JDAY says taht David Yates will be returning to direct Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince. Quote:
But I have some news on Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince film, I have been informed and confirmed that David Yates director of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix has been asked to return for the next film and is expected to accept.
This news should be revealed very shortly, but I also have been informed that filming for this movie is expected to start in May of 2007, this is two months before the release of Order of the Phoenix. Iâ€™ve been told this is to keep with the kids real life ages compared to there characters ages as much as possible. Half-Blood Prince will be released on November 21st of 2008.
Interesting news. In a few days since their is supposed to be an official announcement we will find out if this is true, or not! Thanks Jday for the scoop.
