Anyway, Warner Bros. is planning to finance a new Harry Potter project that the CEO, David Zaslav, believes will make a lot of money. Despite the controversies surrounding author J.K. Rowling, Zaslav continues to support her. In fact, a well-known leaker called WDW Pro disclosed that the studio plans to reboot the franchise with an entirely new set of actors.

In addition to the rumored remake of the original Harry Potter films, there are also plans to turn the play “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” into a movie. This play first premiered in London’s West End in 2016 and tells the story of the adventures of Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy’s sons, Albus and Scorpius.

This could add even more excitement to the project for fans.
According to a report from The Sun, Warner Bros. intends to turn “The Cursed Child” into a movie. The play was a big success and well-liked by fans when it premiered in London’s West End. The movie project was temporarily set aside because the studio was busy working on the “Fantastic Beasts” films.
“A line has been temporarily drawn on that for now, especially given its lacklustre performance, so it’s full steam ahead when it comes to developing The Cursed Child. At the moment, it is in very formative stages and they are discussing the next steps to move it forward.”
The source also said that fans would love to see the original cast return for the game, but it might be very difficult. They said that everyone wants Radcliffe to be a part of the Harry Potter world again. To make it happen, they just needed to make some changes to the script and finalize their plans for the new movie.
“The hope at the moment is that The Cursed Child could be made into two films – both which would pack as much punch, if not more, than the stage show.”
The plans for The Cursed Child seem very hopeful and exciting. However, nothing has been officially confirmed yet. Fans of the franchise can only hope that the project will happen, and that the actors will fulfill their wishes by returning to play their roles again.
