When the "Harry Potter" film franchise began, the fourth story - "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" - was such a fat book that many thought it would have to be turned into two films.

It was a rumor that lasted for years but eventually turned out to be false, instead the fourth film remained one movie as expected - albeit cutting out a lot of the book's padding.

Now the same talk has sprung up again, this time for "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows", the seventh and final novel in the series.

The Daily Mail reports that crews currently working on the sixth film "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" have been told the final Potter film "will be released in two halves."

An unnamed source says "There's so much to fit that the view is the last movie should be in two halves. There is a huge battle when Harry, played by Daniel Radcliffe, takes on Voldemort that needs to be done really well."

Those eagerly anticipating the Summer 2010 release of the film version of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" will be sad to know that it has been delayed a few months.

The reasoning however is good. Warner Bros. Pictures intends to split up the last "Harry Potter" story into two separate films to incorporate all the action.

According to The Los Angeles Times, both films will be shot back-to-back with "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1" opening November 2010 whilst "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" will finish the saga in May 2011.

David Yates, who helmed last year's "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" and this year's "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" is slated to return to direct both installments of 'Deathly Hallows'. Scribe Steve Kloves, who penned all but the 'Phoenix' adaptation, will also pen these scripts.

The move allows for a more complete adaptation of Rowling's 784-page tome which will please the fans, and gives the studio an extra chance to rake in profit from the franchise. All the cast have been confirmed to be returning for the final feature.

Warner Bros. Pictures today announced that it has moved back the release date of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince from November 21th 2008 to Summer 2009. The sixth installment of the blockbuster "Harry Potter" franchise will now open day-and-date domestically and in the major international markets on July 17th 2009. The announcement was made by Alan Horn, President and Chief Operating Officer, Warner Bros.

In making the announcement, Mr. Horn stated, "Our reasons for shifting 'Half-Blood Prince' to summer are twofold: we know the summer season is an ideal window for a family tent pole release, as proven by the success of our last 'Harry Potter' film, which is the second-highest grossing film in the franchise, behind only the first installment. Additionally, like every other studio, we are still feeling the repercussions of the writers' strike, which impacted the readiness of scripts for other films--changing the competitive landscape for 2009 and offering new windows of opportunity that we wanted to take advantage of. We agreed the best strategy was to move 'Half-Blood Prince' to July, where it perfectly fills the gap for a major tent pole release for mid-summer."

Jeff Robinov, President of Warner Bros. Motion Picture Group, confirmed, "The release date change does not alter the production schedule for this or future 'Harry Potter' films. Post-production on 'Half-Blood Prince' was completed on time, and the studio's release plans for the two-part 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows' will not be affected by this change. We know Harry Potter fans are eagerly anticipating seeing the final chapters unfold onscreen. In fact, the good news for them is that the gap will now be shortened between 'Half-Blood Prince' and the first part of 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.'"

Commenting on the release date change for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, David Heyman, the producer of all the Harry Potter films, offered, "When Jeff Robinov explained the rationale behind moving the release date of 'Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince' to July 2009, it was immediately apparent that this offered us the potential to reach the widest possible audience. I am extremely proud of this latest film and of the work of David Yates and our incomparable cast; I believe we have developed and pushed the series further still. We are all looking forward to sharing it with Harry Potter fans around the world, even if we have to wait just a bit longer."

David Yates, the director of both Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and who will also helm "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," added, "It has been a joy to work on 'Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.' Dan, Rupert and Emma and all our returning young cast continue to blossom, and our new cast members bring fresh color and life to Hogwarts. Even as we put the finishing touches on this latest film, we are already beginning preparations on the final two films--we start filming in February--and I am excited to bring this remarkable series to the exciting and moving conclusion its loyal fans deserve."

In Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Voldemort is tightening his grip on both the Muggle and wizarding worlds and Hogwarts is no longer the safe haven it once was. Harry suspects that dangers may even lie within the castle, but Dumbledore is more intent upon preparing him for the final battle that he knows is fast approaching. Meanwhile, the students are under attack from a very different adversary as teenage hormones rage across the ramparts. Love is in the air, but tragedy lies ahead and Hogwarts may never be the same again.

Just watched HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF BLOOD PRINCE.
Much better then the last one but not as good as the fourth one.
The film looked great with cool fx but the story wasnt as involving as I hope it would be and focused too much on teenage romances rather then fantasy.

I strongly believe that this series is by far the most overrated film series of the decade.

The new issue of Entertainment Weekly confirms that the splitting point between the two parts of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" will take place later in the book than expected reports Hollywood News.

-- SPOILERS AHEAD --

According to the mag, "Part I will end at about Chapter 24 of the book, with Voldemort gaining possession of the Elder Wand". This comes later than expected as the book itself is 36 chapters long, making the cut off point at the end of the first film around the two-thirds mark of the story.

This would mean the second film opening next July would mostly consist of the Battle of Hogwarts, while the Gringotts break-in would likely kick off the film.

Warner Bros. Pictures has ditched plans to release "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I" in 3D, opting to open the film in conventional and IMAX theaters in 2D only.

In a statement from the studio, it was said the reason was "we will not have a completed 3D version of the film within our release date window. Despite everyone's best efforts, we were unable to convert the film in its entirety and meet the highest standards of quality. We do not want to disappoint fans who have long-anticipated the conclusion of this extraordinary journey."

The news is hardly surprising. After the successful launch of "Avatar", studios jumped onto the 3D bandwagon at the start of this year with Warners firmly planting its pole in the camp back in March during a speech at ShoWest with plans to either shoot or post-convert many of its 2011 tentpole films.

Then of course the tide turned, thanks mostly to the studio's own "Clash of the Titans". Despite solid box-office, the panned modern remake of the cult 80's classic has become the poster child for how terrible post-conversion 3D can be.

Similar results on the likes of "Alice in Wonderland" and "The Last Airbender" combined with overinflated premium pricing being charged by theatres has led to an aversion to 3D in pop culture. The point was driven home to studio executives at the San Diego Comic Con this year when the 6,000-strong crowd in Hall H met talk of 3D with indifference and talk of post-converted 3D with loud derision.

Despite the ditching of 3D for the first part, the studio however says it still intends to "deliver to conventional and IMAX theaters our final installment of the film franchise, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II, in both 2D and 3D formats" in July next year.
