Harry Potter film producer David Heyman has given a new interview where he discusses the upcoming work to be done on Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. In this article from the PA, David Heyman said: “We finished the sixth film which’ll be coming out next summer and we
start filming the seventh which we’ll be breaking into two parts for a
54 week shoot starting in February.”

The bulk of the article focuses on Mr. Heyman’s reflections on the behavior of the trio over the years, speaking about a “no airs” no diva attitudes taken by Dan Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint. On the Harry Potter set we have a lot of crew from the first film,” he explained at the premiere of his new movie Yes Man in LA. “You can’t get away with anything there, you get joshed and played with. You can’t have any airs or graces.”

He continued: “You cast for the moment, you have no sense of how someone is going to
survive or how they’re going to develop. I’ve been very fortunate with
the kids. There are so many cases of young kids being damaged by the
experience or going off the rails and fortunately with Dan, Rupert and
Emma that hasn’t happened to them… yet!”
