Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) recently spoke with Reuters about both parts of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Regarding the slow pace of the first part, Radcliffe said, “In (Harry Potter) seven … people keep talking about ‘Oh it’s an action movie’ (but) … this is so sedate compared to what the next one is going to be like. The next film, because you’ve had all the plot set up already, you can just kind of enjoy the insanity of all the action.”
When asked about Rupert Grint describing Part 2 as a “war movie”, Radcliffe retorted, “They’ve all stolen my line! My pitch (for Deathly Hallows 1 and 2) was that it’s a road movie that turns into a heist movie that turns into a war film. I was saying it to Rupert and Emma (Watson) the other day. Damn it! The last movie is going to be really, really fast-paced and a load of action in it and it is like a war film. If we had done this book in one film, the stuff that would have got cut is most of this film. For me that is the most interesting part of the story, because it’s where the characters develop and change.”
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 will be released on July 15th, 2011.
