“Deathly Hallows” Film To Be Split in Two Parts?

UPDATE: Empire Online is now quoting Warner Bros. as saying “no decision has been made,” in part because no script exists yet. Steve Kloves cannot begin work on the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows script because of the US writer’s strike. We’ll let you know more once we hear it!

Several visitors have sent in this article from the Daily Mail, which claims crews working on Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince have been told the final film will be split:

There’s so much to fit that the view is the last movie should be in two halves. There is a huge battle when Harry, played by Daniel Radcliffe, takes on Voldemort that needs to be done really well.

What’s more, the Daily Mail claims that big-name directors such as Steven Spielberg are being considered to direct Deathly Hallows. We’ll look into this rumor and let you know what Warner Bros. has to say!
