Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will be released in two parts.
It was announced yesterday that Warner Bros. would release the screen adaptation of J.K. Rowling’s final book in the Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, in two parts. David Yates, who directed Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and is currently in production on Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, will direct from a screenplay adaptation penned by Steve Kloves.
“I’ve had great pleasure working with a tremendous cast and crew thus far, on both The Order of the Phoenix and The Half-Blood Prince,” Yates said in a statement issued today by the studio. Deathly Hallows marks the first time any one director will helm more than two releases in the Harry Potter film franchise.
Yates continued, “It’s a wonderful world to work in and be part of and to create within, and I consider it a great privilege to continue to bring Jo’s extraordinary world to the screen, and to be the director to complete this epic and exhilarating journey.”
