Financial sense makes financial sense.


The sky is blue. Water is wet. And Warner Bros., the same studio that turned The Hobbit into a trilogy of epic-length movies, allegedly would not just like to make the new Harry Potter play into a movie trilogy of its own, but chase down Daniel Radcliffe and get him to return as the bespectacled wizard. Shocking!

The New York Daily News is reporting that Warner Bros. is eager to approach Daniel Radcliffe to reprise the role of Harry Potter for a whole trilogy of movies based on the recent play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, set 19 years after the events of The Deathly Hallows. According to the Daily News’ sources, the studio is securing the movie rights on the sly, and wants Radcliffe to return as the older Harry, despite the many times the actor has said he’s done with the role.
