Could Daniel Radcliffe return to Harry Potter Universe with a big screen adaptation of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child?
With the success of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child on London’s West End stage, it has been reported that a big screen adaptation could come our way as early as 2020.
According to New York Daily News, Producers are looking at Daniel Radcliffe to reprise his role of the boy wizard from the hugely successful Harry Potter franchise.
Written by JK Rowling, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child picks up 19 years after Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and has gone down a storm with both critics and Potterheads.
If the rumours are true and an adaptation of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is indeed on track for 2020, that would be 10 years since the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, when the story calls for a 19 year gap.
Radcliffe is open to a return, he recently told the Radio Times. "The circumstances would have to be pretty extraordinary.
But then I am sure Harrison Ford said that with Han Solo and look what happened there! So I am saying 'No' for now, but leaving room to backtrack in the future."
However, Warner Bros. recently released a statement a few weeks ago saying "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a stage play, with no plans for there to be a film."
If Harry Potter and the Cursed Child becomes a film or not, we return to the wizarding world with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them featuring Eddie Redmayne, Colin Farrell, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Ezra Miller, Samantha Morton with Jon Voight and Ron Perlman coming to Cinemas in November.
