Emma Watson and Jason Isaacs on "Potter"

by | March 15, 2005 | Comments

Contrary to early press reports, work has not yet begun on casting the fifth Harry Potter film, "The Order of the Phoenix," as FilmFocus learned when it talked to two of its potential stars, Emma Watson (Hermione) and Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy), recently.

"To be honest," Watson told the site, "One film at a time! ‘Goblet of Fire‘ has taken eleven months to shoot and I think everyone’s just focussing on getting this one to the end and then we’ll start thinking about the future."

There had been reports that Jason Isaacs was signed up for the fifth film already. "Would that that were true," he explained, "it’s utter b*****ks unfortunately. No-one’s confirmed, they haven’t even got a script yet. I said I hoped I was going to be in it and I had to go to the producers and say, ‘look I’m sorry you’ve seen it in the press everywhere, when you haven’t even decided what the script is,’ but, yeah, I hope they ask me. It’s a riot."

The pair also talked of their time spent on the set of the fourth set, with Isaacs saying, "It was lovely to do scenes with Robert Hardy [Minister for Magic, Cornelius Fudge] again, but mostly all of my stuff is with Ralph Fiennes who plays Lord Voldemort. It’s a tour de force; a real performance and joy to sit back and watch."

Watson also told the site that she didn’t feel like she was to be replaced on the films, hinting for the first time that the trio, Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and herself, are likely to remain for all seven films, "I think I’m growing up with the character," she said, playing down rumours that ‘Goblet of Fire’ might be her last, "People have been talking about outgrowing the character, but that’s not really possible."
