Calm yourselves, Potter fans. It's going to be alright
J.K. Rowling has promised Daniel Radcliffe that the Boy Who Lived will not live again. That is to say, there will be no more stories about Harry Potter in J.K.'S repertoire. She's over it and is moving on.
During the premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part One last night, DanRad confessed to sources that the author who gave him a career also promised him she wouldn't be writing anymore books based on Harry Potter, thus keeping him from having to star in anymore movies. Dan explained she sent him a text message following the film's London premiere last week. He explained:
"Basically, it amounted to the fact that she felt I had been very good in this 'Harry Potter' film, and as a reward for that, she wasn't going to [write] any more 'Harry Potter' [books]. I'm sure she will be writing other books, but I can pretty much guarantee that Harry will not be a feature."
We always say never say never. And besides, who says you have to play Harry Potter should she write another book that instantaneously becomes another movie? We're sure there are a lot of other young actors who would be thrilled to make millions upon millions of dollars for one movie. No worries about that!
Still, maybe instead of a Harry Potter story, she could write about some of the other characters from the franchise and leave Harry out of it. Like how about his parents or Dumbledore? Those sound like viable options to us.
What about U, Potterheads? Do you want more stories about Harry Potter or do you feel seven is enough?
