I think it's great that they are splitting it into two movies in order to NOT have to cut things from the book. My interest in Harry re-kindled (and this a day after I got rid of my Harry Potter icon from my user pics!), I went looking up the movies on IMDB for more info. Apparently David Yates (dir. of the chop fest that was Order of the Phoenix) is not only doing Half Blood Prince, but now the 2 final installments. I am not sure how I feel about this. I'm leaning towards skeptical.
And I was so hoping the chance would be given to Joss Wheadon.
Any thoughts on all this?
