Enough Pot­ter for two movies

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

The clam­our of des­per­ate ra­tio­nal­i­sa­tion em­a­nat­ing from Cas­tle Pot­ter has be­come deaf­en­ing over the past week. As read­ers may be aware, the evil ge­niuses be­hind the Harry Pot­ter fran­chise have an­nounced that Harry Pot­ter and the Deathly Hal­lows, the last film in the cy­cle, is to be split into two sec­tions, which will then be re­leased sev­eral months apart.

“There have been com­part­men­talised sub­plots in the other books that have made them eas­ier to cut,” Daniel Rad­cliffe, the pic­ture’s star, told the Los An­ge­les Times. “The sev­enth book doesn’t re­ally have any sub­plots. It’s one driv­ing, pound­ing story from the word go.”

Yeah, right. And the fact that the stu­dio stands to make twice as much money this way had noth­ing to do with the de­ci­sion.
