OotP Director David Yates: “I’ve Shot a Movie That’s Probably Over Three Hours”

A TLC reader let us know today that Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix director David Yates is quoted in the December issue of Empire magazine regarding the length of the new movie. Quotage (from page 33 apparently):

“The book’s huge, but it actually distills quite easily… That said, I’ve shot a movie that’s probably over three hours, so I’ll have to lose 45 minutes in the edit.”

Please Note: We do not know if the final length of Phoenix has firmly been set as they are just now completing production on the film in England, so this is all very preliminary -in other words, don’t panic yet! We are trying to get more information about this and will update with more.
Thanks Roger!
