HARRY POTTER AND THE CURSED CHILD Movie Might Finally Be In The Works At Warner Bros.
It always seemed inevitable that the Harry Potter and the Cursed novel play would be adapted for the big screen, and it sounds like that's the current plan at Warner Bros. Find out more details here...
The Harry Potter movie series reached its end with The Deathly Hallows, though Warner Bros. managed to stretch the seven book saga into eight big screen chapters by splitting that novel in two.
We've since had a couple of Fantastic Beasts movies, though the second wasn't particularly well-received at the box office or by critics. Excited for the third instalment is somewhat muted as a result, but what comes next for the franchise once that story reaches its conclusion?
Talking at the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media & Telecommunications Conference, WarnerMedia CEO Jason Kilar teased where the Wizarding World could head after Fantastic Beasts.
"There's this little thing called Harry Potter, which is one of the most beloved franchises," he started (via The Hollywood Reporter). "And we're incredibly thankful to be able to partner with J.K. Rowling and so I would argue there's a lot of fun and potential there as well."
The trade reiterates that this could be in reference to the rumoured live-action TV series coming to HBO Max, but note that "on the movie front, there's talk Warner Bros. could be developing a new tentpole based on the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child stage play."
The original cast still aren't old enough to play the older versions of themselves, but might be once Fantastic Beasts finally wraps up. Whether they'd be interested in returning is another matter (Emma Watson has done well since, and likely hopes to move on from Hermione Granger). The Cursed Child hasn't received the warmest of responses from fans, so this should be one to keep an eye on...
