Chris Colombus wants to put the cover back
Right now, the planet of Harry Potter has its eyes on Hogwarts Legacy: The Hogwarts Legacy. Yesterday, developers Avalanche Software showcased their next production for fifteen minutes via recorded gameplay sessions on PlayStation 5. At the end of this presentation, it is clear that the developers have great ambitions and want to offer fans of the franchise the video game they have always dreamed of: a very faithful reconstruction of the places, a part slice of lice with magic classes and dormitories as well as magic wand fights.
However, Hogwarts Legacy is not the only Harry Potter project with the desire to transcribe to the millimeter the universe created by JK Rowling through his literary saga. This is also the case of Chris Colombus, director behind the film adaptations of the seven books of the British author. Last November, he confessed in an interview with Variety have a “little fantasy” regarding Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. 20 years after the events of the main saga, this play follows the adventures of the children of well-known characters like Harry, Hermione/Ron and Draco Malfoy. In his interview, Colombus says he wants to bring the adaptation to the cinema, but not with just anyone:
I would love to direct ‘The Cursed Child. It’s a great play and young people are exactly the right age to play these roles.
“I’m not interested at the moment”
Except that not everyone is of this opinion, and especially among those concerned. This is the case of Daniel Radcliffe, British actor who lent his features for many years to Harry Potter. In an interview given to New York Times and published yesterday, he explains that he does not want to return to the role for the moment:
This is an answer that will not please everyone. If I managed to return to this universe (the reunion of 20 years, editor’s note), it is because it is no longer part of my everyday life. I feel like I got out of this world pretty well and I’m really happy where I am today. Putting the cover back on would be a huge change in my life and one that doesn’t interest me at the moment.
By way of comparison, he evokes the saga Star Wars which left the actors 30 – 40 years before bringing them back. He considers that the past ten years do not constitute a sufficient break but he does not close the door to the thing. It is clear that for many people, Daniel Radcliffe is inseparable from his role as Harry Potter, as is also Hugh Jackman with Wolverine or Matthew Perry with Chandler (Friends).
As a reminder, Daniel Radcliffe will soon be appearing in The Secret of the Lost City alongside Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum. It is expected on April 22 in French cinemas.
