Rupert Grint Mentions Rumors of Chris Columbus Returning to Direct Potter Films Six and Seven
Oct 16, 2006
While in LA recently to promote the release of his new film “Driving Lessons” actor Rupert Grint gave several new interviews, including this new video interview with Jewreview.net where Rupert also discussed working on Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. He says they have about a month yet to go on the film, and the Weasley family has a nice Christmas scene in Phoenix where they give presents out, but the film as a whole is a lot darker. Rupert also briefly touches on Book Seven and what may happen to his character, noting he doesn’t know if Ron and Hermione will get together. The conversation then turned to the film version of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, and the topic of a new director came up, with Rupert saying he has heard rumors that Alfonso Cuaron might come back, as well as Chris Columbus.
