LA Times HeroComplex blog is reporting that Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) will be returning to Leavesden Studios to do a single day of reshoots:

“I got the call today’ Felton said Tuesday. “I have to go back for one
more day of reshoots. So I’m going back in a couple weeks to do,
literally, one more day.”

The “Harry Potter” co-star, who has spent nearly half his life in the role of Draco Malfoy, said he will return to the blond-and-sneering persona for a single day of reshoots for “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows ” Part 2′ the
eighth and final film in the franchise. That film is due in theaters
next summer; the final day of principal photography was last June and
post-production is well underway. But at last week’s New York premiere
of the seventh film there was considerable chatter about the three main
stars ” Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint ’ having been notified that they need to come back to Leavesden Film Studios just
outside London for a bit more time in front of the camera. Now Felton
is another Hogwarts student going back to wizarding school for a bit of
post-graduate work.

“I knew that Dan, Rupert and Emma were called in and I was enjoying that, I was joking that, ˜Oh, I got it on the first take so
I don’t need any of that, going back to do it again.’ And here I am
eating my own words and going back to redo it. They just want to get a
couple of extra camera shots. I don’t think anything was done wrong,
they just want to cover it more. It could literally be a case of panning
the shot five degrees to the left or whatever just to make sure the CGI
shot work. So I’m going to go and serve my duty.”
