For the first time in the Potter film series, cast and crew are filming scenes for one film while promoting the other. In a new interview with Film Journal, David Heyman talks about going back to Half-Blood Prince and the feel of the film: Heyman needs a moment to dredge up what that one is all about. “My head is so much into Seven, and then, all of a sudden, you have to come back to Six,” he vamps by way of an explanation. “What I love about the Potter films is that each is different from the one that precedes it.

Heyman: less to be edited from Deathly Hallows film

A new interview with Daniel Radcliffe and producer David Heyman has been publised in Empire Magazine. Dan talks about how refreshing Deathly Hallows part one is because it's always set in different places, and not just at Hogwarts. He also said, “I think for me, what's intimidating is going to be the walk at the end to meet Voldemort in the forest. That's going to be really tough, but I can't wait.” Heyman added what will probably be a relief for fans who want the films to be completely true to the books, “I think there'll be less edited from this film than films past because we have the freedom of making two films and I think it's going to be fantastic.” Scans are also online, thanks to our friends at DanRadcliffe.com: Dan & David 1 | Dan & David 2 | Dan & David 3 | Dan & David 4 | Trio 1 | Trio 2 Thanks again to DanRadcliffe.com, Jason, and Lucas.
