“Order of the Phoenix” and “Half-Blood Prince” Director to Take Us Through the End?

Lois Lowry, a children’s book writer, has updated her online blog with information about The Giver movie. She had hoped Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince director David Yates would be able to direct The Giver. However:

…he has just decided he wants to do the final ‘Harry Potter’ first, thereby postponing ‘The Giver’ by several years.

While this is not confirmed by Warner Bros. yet, it appears to be a pretty reliable source. We’ll let you know if we know more. Thanks to Ms. Lowry and the Leaky Cauldron for the tip!
