Filmjerk: WB says “not happening” on Stuart Baird as director of OotP
Dec 17, 2003
Filmjerk did a little further digging into the highly improbaby rumors of Stuart Baird directing the fifth Potter film:
The reaction from the press department at Warner Bros.?: “We are not even thinking about a director for the fifth film yet…
Another person from within Warner Bros., who asked that he not be named: “I haven’t heard that name mentioned internally, and, with the interest and talent interested in directing the franchise, I really doubt they would bring in someone whose last film killed off the “Star Trek” franchise, although it was hardly his fault alone.”
And another person, who also asked not to be named and perhaps put it the most succinctly: “Not happening.”
