Empire magazine recently spoke to Daniel Radcliffe and Potter franchise producer David Heyman about the split that will occur during Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. As expected they don’t give anything away, although they do say that it will be “very exciting” and “a very tense cliffhanger”.
“We’ve played around with a couple of places,” said Heyman, “and ultimately settled on a place that we think is very exciting, and I think quite bold, in that it’s not necessarily where one might expect. You want to give a sense of completion, on one hand, but a sense that there’s another piece, more to come. We tried one and then Steve (Kloves, screenwriter) came up with the idea to try it another way and when we tried that, it felt just right.”
Daniel Radcliffe added that the split is “at a very tense cliffhanger.”
