In May of last year we first told you that actor John Hurt had discussed his possible return as Mr. Ollivander to the Harry Potter film series. Tonight, there is more from the actor regarding his portrayal of the mysterious wand maker in the final Harry Potter films. In a new interview with This is Derbyshire, John Hurt says of his return: "I'm in negotiations at the minute because Ollivander comes back into the books," he says. "My son was 12 when it all first started and he was thrilled at the time that I was in it. And all things being equal I will be back."

Filming began last month on the two parts of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, with Part One due in November 2010, and Part Two to be released July, 2011.

aww i remember when they showed the very first look of the movie, and it was the Ollivander scene, it was so exciting, i hope he’s Ollivander again!

Maybe I’m in a cynical mood, but this sounds like a money issue to me. “All things being equal…” I hope that WB is not trying to get him for nothing, and I hope he’s not trying to take them to the bank in order to have him back. He is the perfect Ollivander and it will NOT be the same if they have to use someone else!

I think he did a great job portraying Mr. Ollivander and I like how they’ve managed to keep just about all the same characters played by the same actors/actresses throughout the entire series. It’s awesome!

I hope he comes back and they don’t replace him or cut his part completely. I thought he did a great job in SS; he was mysterious enough without seeming like he was trying too hard.

I love the scenes at Malfoy Manor and at Shell Cottage with Ollivander and Griphook the whole “Hallows or Horcruxes” decision…so pivotal. Also I hope they show Luna getting a new wand. I thought that was a nice aside.

He is a good Ollivander. Creepy, interesting. . . I agree with Harry, I am not sure if I like him too much, but he is verrryy interesting! Can’t wait to see him in DH!

I hope they can work out the details. I love that they have brought back the same actors as much as possible for continuity reasons.
