Reuters: Potter No. 6 claims Thanksgiving '08---
LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince," the sixth installment of the lucrative franchise, will come out in theaters on November 21, 2008.What exciting news! I am quite looking forward to Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, as it is my favorite of the six novels already out. I hope it is fantastic.
Now, Warner Bros. just needs to hire a director and confirm the cast. The fifth installment, "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix," bows in July.
The "Prince" date will mark a return to the Thanksgiving period for the sorcerer series. Of the four "Potter" films to date, only the third installment, "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban," has been released during the summer.
Movie 6 is just over 2 years away. Is anyone in line yet?
And in related news, E Online has a story on "Harry" Woos Helena , about Helena Bonham Carter, among others, joining the cast of HP5 as the horrid Bellatrix Lestrange. She'll be perfect.
