   The Harry Potter Global Franchine Development Team0 Comments

It appears that the Harry Potter novels have moved away from the movies and theme parks to become its own official brand.

Variety is reporting that Warner Bros. has set up the Harry Potter Global Franchine Development Team to oversee all three theme parks; the upcoming Fantastic Beasts movies; the website Pottermore, as well as the upcoming play based on Harry Potter.

Accio Quote:
The team, which will work closely with Rowling’s people at The Blair Partnership, will be led by Josh Berger, president and managing director, Warner Bros. U.K., Ireland and Spain, who now adds president of HPGFD to his role. He will be supported by Polly Cochrane, based in London, and Paul Condolora, based in Burbank, who joins the company this week.

Berger commented, “With Harry Potter’s consumer touch-points continuing to grow and flourish, I am confident that this talented, cross-company global team will enable us to take full advantage of the many opportunities ahead — helping to bring Harry Potter in all its future incarnations to fans all over the world.”

   UK "Horns" trailer and advert poster revealed0 Comments

Lionsgate has just released a new advertisement trailer and poster for Daniel Radcliffe's upcoming Horns movie.

Accio Quote:
From master-of-horror Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes, Piranha 3D) comes this supernatural, offbeat thriller starring beloved British actor Danielle Radcliffe (Harry Potter, Kill Your Darlings) and the talented Juno Temple (Magic Magic, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For).

Ig Perrish (Daniel Radcliffe) is accused for the violent rape and killing of his girlfriend, Merrin Williams (Juno Temple). After a hard night of drinking, Ig awakens, hungover, to find horns growing out of his head; they have the ability to drive people to confess sins and give in to selfish impulses. Ig decides to use this effective tool to discover the circumstances of his girlfriend's death and to seek revenge by finding the true murderer.

Daniel and Juno lead an all-star cast with strong support from David Morse (The Green Mile, The Hurt Locker) and Heather Graham (The Hangover I&II, Boogie Nights).

HORNS is based on the dark fantasy novel of the same name from New York Times best-selling author Joe Hill (Heart Shaped Box) with a screenplay by Keith Burnin. Alexandre Aja, Riza Aziz, Joey McFarland and Cathy Schulman produce.

Director: Alexandre Aja
Cast: Daniel Radcliffe, Juno Temple, Max Minghella with Heather Graham and David Morse
Producers: Alexandre Aja, Riza Aziz, Joey McFarland and Cathy Schulman

Lionsgate releases HORNS on Friday 31 October 2014.

   Trailer "What If"0 Comments

Entertainment One has released a new trailer for Daniel Radcliffe's upcoming What If movie.

Due for release on August 20, 2014, the movie:

Accio Quote:
Follows Wallace and Chantry, who meet by chance at a party and feel the chemistry, but Wallace is recovering from a failed relationship and Chantry has a long-term boyfriend. Acting with the best of intentions and a touch of denial, Wallace and Chantry take on the challenge of being just friends. The adventure is both rocky and very funny as our protagonists navigate the perils of unintended nude camping, risqué wardrobe malfunctions, badly timed international air travel and generally terrible advice from their friends.

With a raucously funny script and standout performances from Daniel Radcliffe, Zoe Kazan and Adam Driver, What If is a charming original comedy about the tried and tested question of whether men and women can ever really be just friends.

   Attend the Shaune Harrison Academy0 Comments

Shaune Harrison, the man responsible for make-up of Lord Voldemort, has set up his own make-up academy.

After 25 years in the business, he states that it is time to share his craft with others.

Accio Quote:
For me personally it’s more of a younger person’s job, doing prosthetics. I could carry on and carry on until I hit my 50s, but this felt like the right time to take a break.

Groupon UK is currently selling tickets to the Warner Bros. Studio Tour for £49.

Dated for September 26th, the special event will allow Potter fans to:

Accio Quote:
Guests will walk the flagstones of the iconic Hogwarts Great Hall before viewing many of the famous sets – including the Ministry of Magic, Dumbledore’s office, and the Gryffindor common room. While exploring the attraction, guests will also be able to enjoy experiences that have been specifically added for Groupon members, like watching prop-makers (who worked on the films with Head Prop-Maker Pierre Bohanna) create wands just as they did during filming, meeting the real feathered and furry animal actors who starred in the film series, and enjoying a special demonstration courtesy of the Special Effects Supervisor from the films.

Guests will get the chance to learn wand moves and will be given the chance to ‘fly’ a broomstick like a member of the cast in the Studio Tour’s green screen experience. During a short break in the attraction’s backlot, guests will be able to enjoy a hotdog, drink, and, of course, Butterbeer before duelling Death Eaters on the Diagon Alley set with their newly learnt wand skills. Finally, guests will depart with a souvenir from the studio shop.

How exciting!

   Rowling to write more crime novels than Potter!!0 Comments

Robert Galbraith recently attended the Theakstons Old Peculiar Crime Writing Festival in Harrogate, North Yorkshire.

During this Festival, Rowling/Galbraith stated to The Herald Scotland that she intends to write many more novels, due to there not being a single storyline to follow, as was with the Potter novels.

Accio Quote:
Speaking at the Theakstons Old Peculiar Crime Writing Festival in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, the multi-millionaire author said she hoped to write "more than" seven books about the detective.

She said: "It's pretty open ended. I really love writing, so I don't know that I've got an end point in mind.

"One of the things I love about this genre is unlike Harry Potter, where there was a through line, where there was an overarching story, a beginning and end, you are talking about discreet stories. So while a detective lives, you can keep giving him cases."

   Radcliffe's farewell to "Cripple"0 Comments

Theatre Mania recently conducted an interview with Daniel Radcliffe in which he bids The Cripple of Inishmaan a farewell.

Accio Quote:
9. Sarah Greene told us she can no longer eat eggs because she has to toss them onstage so often. Are you still able to eat eggs?

Oh, I'm fine, 'cause I'm not really near those things. I'm really glad about it. I don't know what I'd be able to do without eating eggs.

10. If you could talk Rupert Grint and Emma Watson into starring with you in a play or musical, which one would it be?

I'm thinking of things that have one girl and two guys, and the first one was Merrily We Roll Along. Let's go with that.
