The Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Split


Empire magazine talked to Daniel Radcliffe and “Harry Potter” franchise producer David Heyman about the split planned between the two parts of “Deathly Hallows.”

“We’ve played around with a couple of places,” said Heyman, “and ultimately settled on a place that we think is very exciting, and I think quite bold, in that it’s not necessarily where one might expect. You want to give a sense of completion, on one hand, but a sense that there’s another piece, more to come. We tried one and then Steve (Kloves, screenwriter) came up with the idea to try it another way and when we tried that, it felt just right.”

Daniel Radcliffe added that the split is “at a very tense cliffhanger.”

The duo also talked about the coda to the end of the seventh book, which you can read about here.
