When it comes to singling out the one person most responsible for the "Harry Potter" films actually getting made, author J.K. Rowling has long credited producer David Heyman for convincing her that the big screen was the right way to go.
Now, with the final movie, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2," just a day from hitting theaters, Rowling can have her pick of projects. But while she has admitted to writing recently, she won't say what specifically, and her Pottermore website is still a mystery. According to Heyman, it's likely she'll try to keep it things top-secret for as long as possible.
"One of the gifts of 'Harry Potter' [success] for her, and I suppose for me in some ways, is it's bought us time. I know that when she was writing the first few 'Harry Potter,' the pressure to deliver the fourth and fifth — but particularly the fourth — on a schedule, was difficult and traumatic in some ways, and it wasn't pleasurable," Heyman told MTV News. "Now, she doesn't have that pressure. She finishes when she is ready to finish. She delivers when she's ready and that's it. She's writing and I'm sure there'll be something and I can't wait to read it."
Though Heyman played coy on whether he already knows what Rowling's next project will be, he said he would support her in whatever she ventures into. In fact, he seemed ready to follow wherever she might lead him.
"For me, I really want to be involved in adapting Jo's fiction," Heyman said. "If she does write another 'Potter' book, I will be there to work on it. It's been a fantastic thing to be a part of, a real privilege. But really, it all begins with Jo, so if it's not Jo, there's no point."
