Harry Potter And The First Bit Of The Deathly Hollows

According to the L.A. Times:

After months of rumors, Warner Bros. and the producers of the massively successful movies will announce Thursday that they plan to split “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,” J.K. Rowling’s seventh and final “Potter” novel, into two blockbuster films — one to be released in November 2010 and the second in May 2011.

And according to Daniel Radcliffe:

I think it’s the only way you can do it, without cutting out a huge portion of the book. There have been compartmentalized subplots in the other books that have made them easier to cut — although those cuts were still to the horror of some fans — but the seventh book doesn’t really have any subplots. It’s one driving, pounding story from the word go.

On an unrelated note, here are some box office figures:

Harry Potter And The Philosopher’s Stone: $968,657,891

Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets: $866,300,000

Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban: $789,458,727

Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire: $892,194,397

Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix: $937,000,866

It sure would be nice for Warner Brothers’ bank account if they could some how squeeze some more monetary milk from this particular cash cow. On a slightly more related note, David Yates, director of Order Of The Phoenix and the upcoming Half-Blood Prince, has finally been announced as the director of the final two-part money making machine saga.
