RUMOR: Variety says Atkinson to appear in GoF
Jan 05, 2004
According to a Film Production Chart from Variety, funny man Rowan Atkinson may show up in the movie Goblet of Fire. If I’m reading the chart right, production is scheduled to begin in April 2004, 2 months before Prisoner of Azkaban is released in theatres.
