Director and producer Chris Columbus, who worked on the first three “Harry Potter” films, isn’t quite ready to part with the series.
“It's hard to imagine it ending,” he told CNN at “The Help” premiere on Tuesday. (Columbus produced the Emma Stone-starring film, which opened in theaters Wednesday.)
“When I saw the final coda in the last film,” he said, referring to “Deathly Hallows'” final scene, “seeing Harry at like, age 34, it was a little shocking because I said to myself … ‘What happened between the ages of 19 and 30?’”
But before Columbus plans Potter’s future big-screen endeavors, “There's a whole other slew of books that I think could be written if J.K. Rowling can be persuaded," he says. "So we'll see what happens. I hope we see those books.”
Do you think Rowling should continue writing about Harry, Hermione and Ron?
