Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows to be two films

The LA Times has confirmed that the film adaptation of the 784-page finale to the Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, will be adapted into two separate films, which will be shot concurrently à la Lord of the Rings and released in November 2010 and May 2011.

Steve Kloves, the screenwriter of all of the films to date except for last year’s Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, will pen both scriptsDavid Yates, who directed Phoenix and this year’s Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (due November 28), will direct the final two films, as well. If this next one sucks, we’re gonna have a lot of angry little wizards…

    Thank god! I stopped watching after the fourth one because they tried to stuff too much stuff into such a short period, and ended up being a clusterfuck in my opinion. I know the average kid’s attention span wouldn’t withstand a three hour movie, but if it means doing it right, you need to go for the longer run time.

    More Potter = More Happiness. It’s a fact of the universe.

    I was so worried they would mess it all up, and leave out the important parts of the movie. Like… Voldermort, Severus Snape, the search for the Horcrux… to concentrate on making it a kid friendly film. There’ll be so many tears in the cinema when the Battle for Hogwarts hits the screens and folks start dying!
