Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Alfonso Cuaron is indeed the new Harry Potter director. Quotage:

Branagh tells Entertainment Weekly he is now out of the running. ''There was a little talk about it, but now it's definitely not going to happen,'' he said on Friday. ''I don't know what I can say, but I think a candidate has been chosen. It is a person who I know and like and will make everyone happy,'' Branagh said. ''He is an exciting choice.''

That ''he'' seems to indicate the third candidate, Mexican director Alfonso Cuaron. Cuaron may be best known for his current Spanish-language indie hit, the brazenly sexual ''Y Tu Mama Tambien,'' but he also directed the acclaimed children's fantasy film ''A Little Princess'' for Warner Bros., a movie based on a British novel and set in a boarding school. He also directed the Ethan Hawke-Gwyneth Paltrow update of Charles Dickens' ''Great Expectations.''
