Radcliffe, Grint, and Watson Confirmed for Final "Harry Potter" Films

by | March 23, 2007 | Comments

Earlier this week, we reported of possible trouble a-brewing over at Hogwarts: Emma Watson was considering not re-signing her "Harry Potter" contract, desiring to branch out for new roles. But WB has settled the matter, announcing via press release that Watson has signed on to complete the series with "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" and "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows."

"I could never let Hermione go — she is my hero!" states Watson. "I love her too much and love what playing her has meant to me. I am excited and honoured to be finishing what I started and playing her in all seven of the films."

WB’s press release also confirms that Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint will see "Harry Potter" to its conclusion, though there was little speculation the boys were going to jump ship.

Friend opportunity! The trio will finish the series together.

"Playing the role of Harry Potter has been an immense privilege, and I look forward to completing the series," says Radcliffe. "I feel a huge sense of loyalty to the character of Harry and the fans who have supported these films over the years. During filming, I have learnt so much, made lots of friends and met people who have changed my life. I am indebted to J. K. Rowling, Warner Bros. and [producer] David Heyman for giving me this fantastic opportunity."

And mop topped Grint chimes in: "Ron Weasley has become a big part of my life and not just because we’ve both got ginger hair!"

The fifth "HP" movie, "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix," is due for U.S. release on July 13. "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" will hit bookstores a few weeks afterwards on July 21.
