Post Warner Bros. rumored to make 'Cursed Child' a film trilogy, starring Daniel Radcliffe

As it should be of no surprise, there are already rumors abound that Warner Bros. is seeking to bring Harry Potter and the Cursed Child to the big screen, and a new report is saying that the studio is eyeing a release for the first part as early as 2020 - the same year the final Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them movie will hit theaters.

Part of the story, with quotes from 'Hollywood insiders' states that Warner Bros. naturally wants Daniel Radcliffe to come back and play Harry once again the the rumored Cursed Child movies - of which, the report says, could be split in as many as three films, and create yet another trilogy. Do note that Cursed Child is currently playing in two 2:35-hour-part stage productions in London.

“Warners is secretly working on getting the movie rights and a screenplay settled, and of course in their minds only one man should be Harry,” according to a well-placed Hollywood source. “However he has made it clear that his mind is certainly not focused on returning to the role anytime soon — and that could be until he hits 40.”

“Daniel had that job for over a decade with huge success and critical acclaim, but since then he has really established himself as a very strong actor with films like ‘The Woman in Black’ and his Broadway work,” according to our insider. “He doesn't need to go back for money or to reboot his career, so he will need some persuading.”
The report notes that money is essentially no object in getting Dan back to play Harry; he was reportedly paid $50 million for the two-part Deathly Hallows finale over six years ago.

Speaking of the actor, Dan said once again recently that his potential return to Harry Potter would depend on the film's script, and that he has definitely not said no to portraying his famous counterpart on the big screen one more time.

Daniel Radcliffe: “I don’t know — it would really depend on what the script was. I will never close the door on it, obviously, but I definitely wouldn't say that I’m racing to it either.”
Do, of course, take the Cursed Child film rumors with a grain of salt. A recent report in The Hollywood Reporter noted that Warner Bros. is eyeing a film adaptation, but they would begin it after the completion of the Fantastic Beasts series in 2020.

Exciting but almost impossible without making huge changes to the script. I loved the script. But how are you going to turn that into a trilogy? Where is the climax for each part? The villain only reveals herself in the final act.

i knew it, just cant stay away from the Potter galleons can you WB?

well look, Dan-- make him grow a beard, do some clever makeup / CG effect on his face (i mean if they can make Hayley Atwell look 90 as Peggy Carter why cant they add about a decade onto Dan its easy peasy) and he'll look convincingly haggard Harry at 40. same goes with the Emma and Rupert and Bonnie and Tom. VFX wise, no problemo. We have the Hulk. we can do anything now

im guessing theyre gonna roughly follow how the play cuts off as well, its a good place to cut off. they might merge a few things and im sure theyre gonna move things around, add a few things, extend dramaz but adapting a screenplay from a script should be so easy comparing to trying to adapt from a novel. pretty much half their work is already done tbh they can start shooting as soon as tomorrow if they wanna if WB locks all the contracts down tonight

(no of course they cant, that takes time, but just goes to show that script wise, its pretty much a done job)

Yeah thats what crazy is, when its broken you say theres nothing to fix++++++++++++++++++++

I so very much wanted to love the script; I only liked it. How Dumbledore was portrayed - rather weak and whiny - was where I started to shut down. And Ron being drunk at his wedding? REALLY??? If this became a movie, of course I would look forward to it, but not as much as I would have IF the script had been brilliant.

At this point, I am dying for the new film and hope it will fulfill expectations.

How would you manage to stretch it into a TRILOGY??? Talk about 'I'll stop beating this horse when it stops making us money' I feel like WB would struggle to pad out even two whole movies w/ the CC.
