Well, it’s been a little while since I’ve done a Potter Bolt, but I think the news coming out today about some of our favorite Harry Potter stars deems a Bolt necessary.
First off, Dan Radcliffe (Harry Potter) is in final negotiations for the role of Igor in a new rendition of Frankenstein, says Variety. The film is expected to start filming this fall, after his run on the West End in London with the play Cripple of Irishmaan.
Gary Oldman (Sirius Black) will have the lead role in the new film Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. The film, where Oldman will be the leader of the human colony, is set 15 years after Rise of the Planet of the Apes, in which Harry Potter co-star Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) starred in.
Speaking of Felton… he’s signed on for the Wizard World St. Louis Comic Con. This con takes place March 22-24. Get more info here.
UPDATE: It is being reported that Emma Watson is looking at signing on for the title role in Dinsey’s live action film of Cinderella! Cate Blanchett is already signed on to play the role of the evil step-mother. Production is set to start this fall in London.
