New Harry Potter is about sex, drugs

LONDON: “It’s all about sex, drugs and rock n’ roll. Okay, maybe we should take the ''drugs’ out. Really, this film is more sex, potions and rock n’ roll; but there are all these wonderful things in our story," the Telegraph quoted him as saying.

The sixth film from the wizard franchise and the second under David’s direction will also see several of the young characters caught in a tangled web of love interests.

Daniel Radcliffe who plays Harry Potter will find himself drawn to Ginny, while Emma Watson as Hermione Granger will be jealous of Lavender Brown who casts her spell on Ron Weasley, played by Rupert Grint.

The new installment is also expected to be action packed; the movie is expected to open with a set piece that brings a major London landmark crashing down.

Many new villainous characters will also be introduced for the first time such as the werewolf Fenrir Greyback, and the zombie-like Inferi.

The helmer is happy about how adaptation of JK Rowling's book offers the opportunity to explore more as a filmmaker


He said: "Because it’s Harry Potter and because of the fan base, I think there’s a higher tolerance for what we can present to the audience.

"The viewers know the world and they’ve read about these things and they’ve experienced it on the page. Hence, we are able to do a little bit more than maybe other films can.”

The film will release on July 15th but Yates has already started filming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Parts 1 and 2, the final chapters in the series.
