Potter 5 Claims a Release Date

by | April 7, 2006 | Comments

Omar at JoBlo’s informs us that the fifth Harry Potter flick, entitled Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, will make its debut on July 13th, 2007 — which should make for one Potter-crazy week, considering that J.K. Rowling‘s 7th and final chapter in the series is scheduled to hit book stores on 7/7/2007. (Book 7 of the Potter saga is as-yet-untitled.)

Regarding Order of the Phoenix … I haven’t read it. The movies come out so quickly that I just don’t have the time, which means I’ll leave it to one of our many Potterphiles to leave a Phoenix plot synopsis in the comments area below.

What I can tell you is that HP5 will be directed by series newcomer David Yates AND that, for the very first time, a new screenwriter has climbed aboard the series. While the first four HP flicks have been written by Steven Kloves, Part 5 will come with a screenplay penned by one Michael Goldenberg, whom you might know from Peter Pan, Contact, or Bed of Roses. Early word indicates that Mr. Kloves will be returning for movie #6.
