Daniel Radcliffe Might Not Have Put Down His Wand For Good...

Brace Yourselves: Harry Potter Could Be Back On Your Screen

With 250,000 tickets selling out within hours, and resale tickets going for up to a scorching £4,999, you’re forgiven if you haven’t seen Harry Potter and the Cursed Child on stage yet. Just.

Fear not, though, because there are murmurs of Warner Brothers turning the show into a film as early as 2020! And the best bit? Daniel Radcliffe could don his scar and spectacles once more.

Speaking to the New York Daily News, a Hollywood source said that ‘“Warners is secretly working on getting the movie rights and a screenplay settled”’ for a block-busting trilogy focused on Harry’s son Albus.

Dan’s not been doing too shabbily for himself since we last saw him as everyone’s favorite angst-ridden wizard in 2011 (was it really five years ago?!). Since the end of the Potter-era he has been playing hard-hitting, gritty roles on both stage and screen, playing an FBI agent on the hunt for white supremacists in his latest film Imperium. A far cry from the robe-clad, wand-wielding boy wizard.

However, in a recent interview with The Sun, Radcliffe said that he would ‘“never want to close the door on anything, especially something that has been so good to me,” promptly causing us all to shout ‘expelliarmus’ and settle into a marathon re-watch of the Harry Potter films.

He did add, though: ‘“I think I have still got a little while for me to be age appropriate for this Harry.”

Okay, so it might be a while off. But watch this space…
