There’s never a shortage of Potter-related news, is there? The latest tidbit comes from young actor Rupert Grint, who either dropped a mild surprise — or has no idea what he’s talking about. It seems that Chris Columbus might be coming back to helm his third "Harry Potter" flick.
From a video interview at JewReview.net: "Then, we got to talking about The Order of the Phoenix. He told us about how the Weasley’s are much more involved in this film. And he even mentioned the return of Chris Columbus as director to the series for the 6th and 7th film."

Alfonso Cuaron directed "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban," and Mike Newell helmed "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire." David Yates is the one at the controls for the upcoming "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix," which hits the cinemas on July 13th, 2007.
