David Yates on Directing Deathly Hallows: “I’m Tempted”
Mar 10, 2008
In a new video interview, David Yates discusses the possibility of his return to direct Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. In an interview with Empire magazine at last night’s awards, David Yates says “I’m tempted” when asked if he will be returning to helm the final film in the Harry Potter series. Saying he can’t really say much about it, he does note they “talk about it” every day, but declined to elaborate further.
David Yates also states they have two more months of filming yet to go on Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, and is very enthusiastic about the filming, saying every day “is a joy” as they work on the sixth Harry Potter movie. He gives the book high praise (“smashing”) and says he can not wait to bring the film to audiences later this fall, they are all really excited.
