Harry Potter 6 to Return to Lacock Abbey


The Wiltshire Times reports that filming for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince will take place again at the cloisters at Lacock Abbey:

Scenes from the first two Harry Potter blockbusters were filmed in the village and in the cloisters at Lacock Abbey.

In the most recent film, Harry Potter and the Order of The Phoenix, the cloisters courtyard is enhanced using computer animation and featured as a courtyard in Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

But the filming crews want to return to Lacock with many of the main characters to capture a series of spooky night scenes for Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince.

Daniel Radcliffe, who plays the protagonist Potter, is set to be involved in the local filming.

The movie-making teams now have permission to return for four days in October and film scenes between 5pm and 5am.

High Street and Church Street will be closed and the bus stop outside the George Inn looks set to be relocated for the duration.

“Half-Blood Prince,” to be directed again by David Yates and written by Steven Kloves, is targeted for a November 21, 2008 release.
