Previously, we told you about stories about the possibilty of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix filming in Prague. The Times is now reporting that is NOT to be the case, and that Phoenix will be shot in the UK.

The studio told The Times that it had decided against making the film in a cheaper location in Eastern Europe, such as Hungary or the Czech Republic. A spokesman for Warner Bros said: "The next Harry Potter film will be shot in the UK."

The proposed fifth film in the franchise, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, is expected by industry analysts to have a production budget of close to $150 million (£85 million). The decision to produce the film in the UK will create hundreds of jobs directly and many times more jobs indirectly, through related activities such as visual effects and catering.

It is believed that Warner Bros ultimately made its decision to keep the film in Britain because of the cost of relocating the extensive sets and talent overseas."

Production is set to begin on Phoenix in January, 2006. Thanks Roonwit!
