There is an article online from the Daily Record which reports that a ‘10-ton Cossar flat bed web newspaper press’ is set to be replicated for the “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” film. The paper reports, press owner David Phillips was approached by film producers to help develop a replica of the 100-year-old printing press. Noting the level of secrecy surrounding all aspects of the production, Mr. Phillips said: “I have no idea what part it plays in the movie because the set in Watford was like Fort Knox, security was that tight.” In the novel, a printing press used by Xenophilius Lovegood does appear, and it possible that those scenes are under consideration for inclusion in the seventh film. However, this is very much unconfirmed, as Harry Potter film producer David Heyman told TLC recently, even he has not yet read the script for the second half of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.”
