Steve Kloves talks Deathly Hallows split
Potter screenwriter Steve Kloves today sent an email to the Baltimore Sun, shedding light on his thoughts of the Deathly Hallows split announced yesterday:
“Years ago,” he writes, “we briefly – and seriously – considered doing Goblet of Fire as two films. So this concept is not altogether new.

Others in 'the group' felt similarly. So the idea of two films began to get kicked around as early as late summer of 2007. We didn’t take it lightly. But ultimately everyone felt that despite the challenges it would present, it was the most sound creative decision. I’m sure some will think we’re crazy.
