Deathly Hallows Will Be Two Parts, Says Warner Brothers

Story Overview:
Rumours have been flying around the internet for weeks now that Deathly Hallows, the seventh and final part of the epic Harry Potter novel phenomenon will be made into two separate films.

Today, David Heyman spoke in an interview with the Los Angeles Times confirming that the Deathly Hallows will be split into two films simply titled "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I", which will release in November 2010, and "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II", which will release in May 2011. Heyman says that he spoke to J. K. Rowling, the series author and that, "she was cool with it" and that "that was quite a relief".

When asked about this decision Daniel Radcliffe, who plays the title character, Harry Potter, in the films, said, "I think it's the only way you can do it without cutting out a huge portion of the book."

Warner Brothers Entertainment President Alan Horn and Jeff Rubinov are expected to talk about the plans for the future of the Harry Potter film series on Thursday.

The two films will be shot simultaneously, directed by Order of the Phoenix and Half-Blood Prince director David Yates, with screenplays by screenwriter Steve Kloves.
