Variety: Ralph Fiennes to Begin Deathly Hallows Production “In the Fall”


Apr 08, 2009

Posted by SueTLC

Another update tonight regarding the possible filming schedule for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, this regarding actor Ralph Fiennes. Variety reports tonight the actor, who is reportedly in advanced negotiations to appear in the remake of “Clash of the Titans,” is trying to work his schedule as “the thesp wants to squeeze in all these commitments before returning to
his role as uber-villain Voldemort in the final Harry Potter
installment, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II,” which
begins production in the fall.”

Readers will remember too that in late December of last year we heard from actor Alan Rickman who mentioned working with Ralph Fiennes (Lord Voldemort) for those pivotal and dramatic scenes at the end of Deathly Hallows, noting filming for those scenes would take place later this year. As we reported previously too, Ralph Fiennes also spoke several times last year on his character of Voldemort; worth a re-read are his comments on the psychology of Voldemort.

In one last fun related note, it seems that the Dark Lord will be making an appearance with Professor Trelawney of sorts as Variety also reports that Ralph Fiennes “will also take on an uncredited cameo in Working Title’s sequel to 2005
hit “Nanny McPhee,” in which Emma Thompson will reprise her role as a
magical governess.”

Avatar Imagedavid1228 says: Wait, Part II??? What about Part I? That's pretty important too. Imagine the first half of DH without Voldy!! shudders at the thought...Avatar ImageAubNoelle says: I cannot wait to see the Voldy/Snape scenes! Sue, you are on a roll today with the news-gettin!Avatar ImageLily_Phoenix says: I'm so excited! Ralph is my favorite actor, I would love to see him in Clash of the Titans!Avatar ImageMary11_hplvr4l says: they start filming deathly hallows 2 in the fall?!? omg its so soon :((Avatar ImageHPNAIV says: Ralph is so handsome ... that's all I need to say really. LOL :)Avatar Imagetaekwondochik44 says: Voldemort! Voldemort! Oh, Voldy Voldy Voldy Voldemort!!!! This is awesome! But no appearances in Part 1? Interesting. Avatar ImageErinM says: I might rent Nanny McPhee II ;)Avatar ImageErinM says: @Katherine {ROAR}; LOL Now I can't get that sone out of my head!!! LOLAvatar ImageEnricoDc says: Yah! Why DH Part 2 only? He also had an appearance in the beginning on which him and other Death Eaters tortured a Hogwarts Female Professor and Voldy had an important scene in Godric's Hollows (Bathilda Bagshot's house).Avatar ImageFanaticFangirl says: Well, Voldy wouldn't be in Prt1, would he? So it would make sense that he would only appear in Prt2. I can't wait for the Voldy/snape scene though. Avatar ImageLeo_Lovegood says: I think, in regards to the Pt II comment, they are filming his few scenes in Pt 1 at the same time as the Pt II so they just said Pt II.Avatar ImagePaintTheSky says: I'm sure he'll appear in DH Part I as well, sometimes these news articles don't get everything right or miss things.Avatar Imagekatana says: I sure hope they just messed that up by saying "Part 2", because part 1 will be kind of crappy if he's not in it at all. Voldy is in part 1!! What about Seven Potters....where LV almost nabs Harry? What about Godric's Hollow? (assuming that is in part 1 and not after the split). LV has to be in part 1 at least a couple of times!Avatar ImageProfessor Cassandra says: It seems unreal that they're already talking about filming the last movie. So exciting! And yet sad at the same time.... I'm definitely seeing the Nanny McPhee sequel now, too. Ralph Fiennes is awesome. :)Avatar ImageEnricoDc says: I wish they expand the scene on which Harry's parents both killed in Godric's Hollows. They appeared in a flashback... & i agree with katana that Voldemort appeared a couple of times since the 1st chapter of the book, most scenes of Voldemort are seen by Harry through his forehead scar. Avatar Imagebadger666 says: Cool. Can't wait to see him in DH.Avatar ImageKimberlyZ says: Voldemort has a huge role in DH part 1 & 2! Are they just going to skip all the visions that Harry has as well as the close calls? I was hoping that they would sort of show both stories Voldy's search for the Elder Wand through Harry's vision, don't we think they are important to represent? Avatar Imagefantasylover12001 says: They're doing a remake of Clash of the Titans? I'm both horrified and slightly intrigued....Avatar ImageEnricoDc says: i heard a rumor that after Deathly Hallows, they will make a movie that focus on Quidditch World Cup (it means that the entire movie is showing a long Quidditch Match), also still Daniel Radcliffe will play as Harry Potter (Seeker). I wish it will came true.Avatar Imagemomentofzen says: I don't think I could handle a whole movie of Quidditch...Avatar Imagephantomdave79 says: I am so glad he will see Voldemort to the end! Although I hope that some info is just incomplete at the moment. I hope the opening chapter of DH hasn't been completely chopped out?!?!Avatar ImageBunty says: Both HPDH Part 1 and HPDH Part 2 will be shot simultaneously, so they will split the whole footage during editing... so he will appear in part one also.Avatar Imagenoe_lover_42 says: ok cool :) <<--- Add Me On Myleaky ^_^Avatar Imagemhaeyemhaeye says: Yay! I can't wait for more news about Voldy! :DAvatar ImageJustSuperMione says: The who must not be named is going to be in Nanny McPhee? Why can't Emma T take some time off to be in both too!!! They're guna be filming in the fall!!! Squeel..! I'm SOOOO excited and Moldy looks so handsome... do you think they use him in the Princes Tale Sequence?Avatar Imagewandmastercalum says: Thats great... so soon. I don't want it to dead. I want my mum to take me to the premier for the last HP movie ever!! So far it looks as if I won't even be seeing the movie at the cinema. We''re one of the people who don't seem to have much money. Hey what happened to the drug article... its gone.Avatar Imagewandmastercalum says: Soz ignore my last comment I just realised its at the lower page. xDAvatar Imageavrenim says: oh my gosh, every time i hear news about filming my impatience gets worse and worse!!Avatar ImageVideoKID says: Yay cant wait =) Ralph Fiennes is soo coool!Avatar ImageLuce_depp says: He has to be in part one!!! if they don't include the flashback in godrics hollow i will most likely cry!Avatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: This is awesome! Avatar Imagelevi-OH-sa not levio-SA says: he is so sexy when he has a noseAvatar Imagesplinch says: If they do split it at the silver doe, he has to be in part 1, like some of you mentioned, at least the godric's hollow scene..... at least.... they are filming both at the same time so maybe he will just film the small part at ms bagshots house , and the scenes of him searching for the elder wand...and the battle of little whinging....omg, thats the first part of pt1.....he flys, they have to show him flying ><Avatar ImageCool Grandma2 says: Interesting. Maybe they are filming all his appearances at one time. It seems funny talking about DH part 2 when we haven't seen HBP yet.Avatar Imagesplinch says: i would think they are, and yes i wish we had some idea of what to complain about in HBP so we can know sort of what to expect in DH, but we do have the 5 movies that butchered the books before hand, (cough) POA (cough) ....poor poor winky....Avatar Imageshellybasson says: Voldemort, Voldemort, ooh, voldy-Voldemort! He's sooo bad that he's actually gooood! LOLAvatar Imagesiriuslysirius11 says: Fall is too soon to start filming for DH II !Avatar ImageGarden State Geek says: Ralph Fiennes definitely the man for Voldemort. Avatar ImageHGROSS44 says: I HAVE NO DOUBT THAT HE WILL WORK IT OUT AS HE IS A GREAT ACTOR AND IS THE ONLY VOLTY WE KNOW HE WILL BE GREAT IN THE REMAKE OF" CLASH OF THE TITANS." I DOTN' THINK THEY WILL DO GODRIC'S HOLLOW THERE ARE SO MANY PARTS IN THE BOOK EVEN WITH TWO MOVIES IT WILL BE HARD TO PUT EVERYTHING IN THEM AS IT IS.Avatar Imagemaera-kyrie says: *excited*Avatar ImageJaymie Brooks says: So what if they're filming Part II in the fall? They may shoot his Part I scenes then as well. Remember, they're only technically filming one movie. They can go back and shoot Part I scenes whenever they want to.Avatar ImageJessLovesRon says: Of course he will be in part 1, there is no way to get around that. We haven't even seen the 6th movie, and the last 2 parts are going to be filmed soon. I don't want it to end. Avatar Imagespicefan1978 says: I thought they were filming both parts at the same time? I'm looking forward to the Nanny McPhee sequel as well.Avatar Imagecghambright says: They could be filming anything. Voldemort is in book 7 ALOT! But I'm willing to bet one of the opening sequences like the one with the muggle studies teacher (if it's in there) and the Seven Potters will be filmed then!! Yay! So Exciting!!!Avatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: I am glad that he is returning and hope that his fantastic Voldemort only improves in the last two installments of the film series.Avatar ImageKimberlyZ says: i see he can grow his nose and loose it again and again ;)Avatar ImageJersey says: Has anyone heard anything about Robbie Coltrane not appearing in part 1 of deathly hollows? Was just on the IMDB and he's the only one not listed in the cast.Avatar ImageHermioneRon4ever says: Oh, I can't wait!!! I'm especially looking forward to those "Prince's Tale" scenes! One of my favourite chapters of the whole book!Avatar ImageHermioneRon4ever says: Oh, I can't wait!!! I'm especially looking forward to those "Prince's Tale" scenes! (I'm guessing that's what the "Pivotal scenes toward the end" between Alan and Ralph are)... One of my favourite chapters of the whole book! I really hope they aren't cutting him out of part one, please please please!Avatar Imagelinnie95 says: Mr. Fiennes makes a great Voldemort. Can't wait for the Deathly Hallows.Avatar Imagehermyone08 says: Good news!Avatar ImageDanielleD says: Amazing! :)Avatar Imagestevenk12468 says: The more I read about the new Deathly Hallows movie, the more excited it get!Avatar Imagesaffran says: Yeeah!Avatar Imagesaffran says: Nice to see him with a nose, though :)Avatar Imagelunaspec_gimmy says: Eeep! :D Get so excited when I see any news like this. ^_^Avatar ImageDanielleD says: they better do the first chapter of the book just like it is written!
