More on Movie Direction in EW
Aug 03, 2003
Entertainment Weekly has a short bit about Mike Newell being considered as director for Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, with this from Azkaban director Alfonzo Cuaron:
“It was always only Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban for me. I never thought [seriously] about continuing.” Though he was approached about doing HP4, prepping Goblet (slated for 2005) while finishing Azkaban (coming out next June) seemed too daunting. “Frankly,” says Cuaron, smiling impishly, “I’m extremely lazy.” Still, he dreads bidding adios to Potter stars Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint. “That will be very painful,” he says. “They’re growing fantastically as actors. But it’s up to the next director to enjoy them.”
