Fear not, “Potter” fans! Though the film franchise comes to a close in July with the release of “Deathly Hallows, Part 2,” there will be plenty more opportunities to revisit the work of Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and their cohorts.
Producers David Heyman and David Barron revealed to MTV News that Morgan Matthews, an award-winning British filmmaker, shot a documentary on the set of “Deathly Hallows” that will be coming out after the final installment of the franchise itself.
“He went behind the scenes and had incredible access to talent and crew and has made a documentary that is not yet complete, which shows the challenges of making the film — the tolls it takes on actors and crew,” Heyman said. “It’s not just pure gloss and everybody’s happy. It’s real. … At the same time, it’s really, really funny.”
Heyman went on to describe one such scene in the unfinished doc. “Morgan comes in to interview Dan in his dressing room, and Dan says, ’Will you wait one second? I want to watch the 2:50 at Doncaster,’ which is a horse race. He says, ’Yeah, I bet on it.’ ’How much?’ ’Ten quid.’ And the horse, of course, comes in way behind the pack.”
In addition to the documentary, Heyman and Barron said fans can also expect, down the line, to check out behind-the-scenes footage stretching back to 2001’s “Sorcerer’s Stone.”
“It was a very well-documented production. We had a crew filming behind the scenes for the entire production, which is unheard of — and that’s been for all the films,” Heyman explained. “There is material, and we’ll see how it’s used. I’m sure Warner Bros. will package it in some form or another.”
