There is a curious report today regarding location filming for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. According to the Liverpool Echo, actor Bill Nighy has apparently been on the set for filming at the Birkenhead tunnel area of Liverpool, England.  The paper says "The actor has been busying himself around Liverpool’s famous sites and eateries during breaks from filming the latest Harry Potter movie. He plays Minister of Magic Rufus Scrimgeour in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – the final film in the series – which has been shooting after dark in the Birkenhead tunnel. Insider spotted Bill at Gusto at the Albert Dock, and at the Italian Club on Bold Street where he was chatting to owner Rosaria about his upcoming big screen wizardry."

These scenes at the tunnel are widely believed to be for the Seven Potters sequence in Deathly Hallows. We are working to verify this report and will update with more when we can.

Just adding to what CassandraM says above, the movie producers have essentially been changing the story to suit their own design as far back as Prisoner of Azkaban. Changing the story for the movie is nothing new so there is really no way of knowing what will happen in Deathly Hallows.

why would Scrimgeour go on a tunnel? hmmm…. He’s not supposed to be on the “Seven Potters” scene… or will they change it (yet again?)…

That’s kinda odd. I’ve got NO problem with having more Bill Nighy in this movie since his character dies so early, but it’s strange that he’s supposedly in the Seven Potters scene. I don’t suppose he’d be part of the guard escorting Harry? I don’t see why, but hey, it gives him a reason for being there, I guess.

Just because he was there doesn’t mean he was filming – there are numerable reasons he could have been there. If he was in fact there for Harry Potter filming surely it could involve him checking out the scene of Moody’s death or something similar? Moody’s eye goes to Umbridge, she had to get it somehow…
Just saying, it’s not completely out of left field.
