Double the Harry


Harry Potter fans everywhere are jumping for joy. Even though the latest book in the series, Deathly Hallows, is also the last, movie execs have decided to turn the heavy tome into two big-screen bonanzas. They're scheduled to be released in November 2010 and May 2011. Apparently, there's too much material in the book to cover in just one movie. "I think it's the only way you can do it, without cutting out a huge portion of the book," Daniel Radcliffe, aka Harry Potter, says. "There have been compartmentalized subplots in the other books that have made them easier to cut - although those cuts were still to the horror of some fans - but the seventh book doesn't really have any subplots. It's one driving, pounding story from the word go." (There's also too much money to be made not to keep the franchise going!)
