Harry Potter meets the Never Ending Story…

Oi ‘Arry! I gots me wand in me ‘and and me gold in me pocket for ye!

Proving that you can get enough of a good thing if you market well enough, the final book in the wildly successful Harry Potter series will be made into two films, the Los Angeles Times reported Wednesday.
Producers have announced that J.K. Rowling’s last “Potter” installment, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,” will be split into two parts on the big screen. The first film is slated for release in November 2010, with part two following in May 2011.

“It was born out of purely creative reasons,” producer David Heyman told the L.A. Times. “Unlike every other book, you cannot remove elements of this book.”

Despite the fact that nothing really happens through much of the book and J.K.Rowling has more money than God, the producers are milking the golden teet of Harry Potter for all it’s worth. The two final “Potter” films will be shot concurrently, much like the blockbuster trilogy based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s epic fantasy novel “The Lord of the Rings” and Disney’s crap-tastic “Pirates of the Caribbean” trilogy of shame. Another famous Tolkien tome, “The Hobbit” is also being split into two live-action movies set for back-to-back shooting to begin next year and will pwn mad n00bs upon its release.

Filming on the sixth “Potter” flick, “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince,” began in September.

“It’s been brilliant,” said star Daniel Radcliffe. “It’s also, I think, the funniest of the films so far.”

The “Wizarding World of Harry Potter” at Universal Studios, Florida is set to open to the public in 2009. The “Potter” film franchise has pulled in $4.5 billion at the worldwide box office, making it the third highest-grossing tweenage pasttime behind the Olsen Twins’ multimedia series and Michael Jackson’s crotch.
