Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will be Two Movies

Back in January we posted a story about the last Harry Potter movie (The Deathly Hallows) being filmed Kill Bill style and released in two parts. It was said to be gospel, but admitted speculation. Well today we got news via Owl that Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will in fact be filmed in two parts.

Cinematical offers:

After months of speculation, Warner Bros has revealed to the L.A. Times that they plan to split the final Harry Potter book into two films. One will be released in November 2010, the second in May 2011, and will simply be titled Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I / Part II.

I explained my reasons for liking this idea back when I posted about the split.

Sure, everyone assumes this is a huge money grab. They don’t need to split the movies up. This long final chapter of the Harry Potter series would surely benefit from 90 minutes of storytelling.

I don’t care that the studios might be double dipping on one book to make two movies. Its not like there will be MORE Harry Potter Movies for them to capitalize on. Let them have their way. At least they are releasing them 6 months apart. Hopefully this wont suck like the Matrix sequels. After the first sequel I didn’t even care to see the last one.

As long as the movies rock, I am all for it.
