Enough Potter for two movies
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.
