8 Harry Potter films, not 7

Last 'Harry Potter' Book Becomes 2 Films
Thursday March 13 5:50 AM ET

Harry Potter was the center of seven novels, but he'll star in eight films. The final book in the wildly successful series will be made into two films, the Los Angeles Times reported Wednesday.

Producers are expected to announce Thursday that J.K. Rowling's last "Potter" installment, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," will be split into two parts on the big screen. The first film is slated for release in November 2010, with part two following in May 2011.

"It was born out of purely creative reasons," producer David Heyman told the Times. "Unlike every other book, you cannot remove elements of this book."

The two final "Potter" films will be shot concurrently, much like the blockbuster trilogy based on J.R.R. Tolkien's epic fantasy novel "The Lord of the Rings"

Another famous Tolkien tome, "The Hobbit" is also being split into two live-action movies set for back-to-back shooting to begin next year.

Filming on the sixth "Potter" flick, "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince," began in September.

"It's been brilliant," said star Daniel Radcliffe. "It's also, I think, the funniest of the films so far."

The "Potter" film franchise has pulled in $4.5 billion at the worldwide box office.

If they crammed everything into one film and left out loads of stuff, 20 years later we'd still be talking about the Great Potterfan Riots of 2010.

I can see how they will do it, but most of the subplots were cut out entirely in the films, so what's point in making 2 films instead of one Return of the King-sized one other than $$$?

Oh wait...

Too bad Del Toro didn't get to do the last two films, in which case I might have actually given a crap.

Yeah, but on the upside I now have hope that you might one day lose your virginity.

So this means that the months long miserable camping trip around Britain will feature heavily in the film(s)?

Yay?

The worst part is I'm pretty sure I'll go to see them both.

Personally, I have never pointed my wand at anyone with intent to hurt.
