'Never going to say never': Daniel Radcliffe hints return to Harry Potter Universe, as Warner Bros. plans The Cursed Child adaptation
Warner Bros. is exploring the potential for a big-screen adaptation of "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child," eyeing original cast members Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint. Despite past underperformance and controversies, hope surrounds the beloved franchise.
Magic is in the air, and it's calling for a reunion! More than a decade after the final Harry Potter film, Warner Bros. is looking to recapture the magic wand, shaking off the dust from the Fantastic Beasts' lackluster performance and turning eyes towards a spellbinding future.
Ah, remember when Harry was but a young wizard in glasses, Ron was the loyal friend, and Hermione was the cleverest witch of her age? Well, the golden trio might just be back for another magical adventure. "Never going to say never," said Daniel Radcliffe about returning to the wizarding world (as reported by The Hollywood Reporter).
According to The Sun, the plan is to bring "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child," the hit stage play that opened in West End in 2016, to the big screen. Yes, you read that right! And with the original cast members approaching the same age as the characters, things are aligning like stars in the Divination classroom.
Warner Bros. has big dreams, and they include Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint. “The hope at the moment is that The Cursed Child could be made into two films – both of which would pack as much punch, if not more, than the stage show,” revealed an insider.
Despite Emma Watson's hesitancy to rejoin if J.K. Rowling is involved (as confirmed by a source from Giant Freakin Robot) and the unspoken controversy surrounding the author, the plans to relive the adventures of Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy’s sons are alive and well.
But let's not polish our broomsticks just yet. The project is still in "very formative stages," with much to iron out, including convincing Mr. Radcliffe to step back into Harry's shoes. The excitement is tangible, and as Rupert Grint confirmed (as per Daily Mail), he'd love to play Ron again if "the timing was right and everyone was coming back."
These plans for The Cursed Child look more than promising, a wizard's chest filled with potential treasures. Fans around the world are holding their breath, hoping their favorite stars will grant them their wish.
It's clear that the magic of Harry Potter continues to enchant, even after all this time.
