David Yates Directing Final Harry Potter Film?

So sayeth Lois Lowry.

It appears as though David Yates will be the one helming the final Harry Potter film — but his decision comes at a price for fans anticipating another literary adaptation.

Lois Lowry, author of the 1993 young-adult favorite The Giver, spilled the Yates/Potter news in her latest blog entry, posted Tuesday. What does Lowry have to do with it, you ask? Well, David Yates is set to direct an adaptation of her book — but he can only be one place at a time, and, well…why don’t we let Lowry tell it?

Bad news from The Giver movie front. David Yates, the director currently working on the next Harry Potter film, was supposed to begin The Giver film next. But he has just decided he wants to do the final Harry Potter first, thereby postponing The Giver by several years. Maybe the opening of this film could be held simultaneously with my celebration-of-life service after I succumb to old age? Or the producers will decide to get a different director. Stand by. But without holding your breath.

Good as this news is for Yates-loving Potter fans, The Giver is actually one novel we wouldn’t mind seeing turned into a film. We won’t spoil any of the plot details for you here; suffice to say the book is cool enough to have been banned by many an uptight school district. Hurry up, Yates!
