Daniel Radcliffe: Excited About Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Times Two!

by at . Comments

As we reported yesterday, the final installment of Harry Potter - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - will be broken into two movies. Star Daniel Radcliffe sees this as a positive.

"It's a really positive thing," the actor told TV Guide recently. "And I think the fans will appreciate that more than had we tried to make it into one film. We'd have to cram so much in there and actually have to skip over some things. And in this seventh book, there are a lot of things you can't afford to skip over."

Of course, Radcliffe acknowledges that director David Yates and the writers have a lot of work ahead of them.

"The challenge now is for them to find out where the breaking point is between the two films," he said, "because I don't think there is an obvious place [to do so]."

The timetable for the big finale?

"When I finish the sixth film [Half-Blood Prince], which I'm shooting now, I'll take some time off â€" I'm doing Equus on Broadway â€" and a while after that I'll get on the Hallows films, which we'll film as one. That will begin early-ish next year."
