I am pleased to inform you that it has been confirmed for us by Dan’s Publicist that Dan has, in fact, signed on for the last two Harry Potter films. Dan will begin filming in September on Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. He has also signed on to return and reprise his role as Harry in the very last film, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. This will “mark a place” in history for Dan and fulfill his wishes as he stated more than three years ago that he would like to portray “Harry” in all of the films.
The fifth film, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, opens in conventional theaters and IMAX on July 13. “Half-Blood Prince” is scheduled for a November 21, 2008 release.
