“Harry Potter” film series producer David Heyman was asked this week by Empire how the final entry, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part Two” is progressing.
Heyman says “I’ve seen a very, very early cut. it’s very exciting. No visual effects, no music, no sound effects, and it’s really exciting. But it’s early days and the film continues to take shape and will continue to take shape over the next many months. I think it will be a great ending to the series.”
They also went into specifics about two key scenes in the book that may prove problematic to render onscreen – the ‘King’s Cross’ sequence and the major flashbacks in the middle of the action. “In terms of the King’s Cross scene, I think it does work and it’s very moving. We actually did it once, and then re-did it a little bit because we needed to refine something, and I’m pretty glad we did. it’s a very quiet, moving scene, but I think it leaves the series on the right note” said Heyman.
As for the flashbacks, he says “The only flashback really that one thinks about is the Snape flashback, when Harry goes into the Pensieve to see Snape’s story, and that’ll be defined, but it’ll be very moving. In a way this was an easier structure than Part One because it’s quite defined.”
