Rumors are rife that Daniel Radcliffe could be returning to the big screen again as Harry Potter.
The British actors could be about to be approached by Warner Bros about starring in a film adaptation of the theatre production Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, the New York Daily News reports.
“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,” a source told the publication. “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,” said the insider. “He doesn’t need to go back for money or to reboot his career, so he will need some persuading.”
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child opened to strong reviews on July 31, along with a script of the play that was released in book form.
The plot features an adult Harry, Ron and Hermione but the primary protagonists of the story are Harry’s son Albus and Draco Malfoy’s son Scorpius.
Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson played the roles of Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger for all eight film adaptations of the famous wizarding series.
