"Harry Potter" fans will need a strong stomach to sit through the next installment of the wizard franchise - the film has been described as "bloody", "gory" and "harrowing" by actor Matthew Lewis. The seventh installment in the series, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows", has been split into two films, with "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I" slated for release in November this year and "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II" set to hit cinemas eight months later, July 2011.
Matthew Lewis, who plays Neville Longbottom in the movies, has revealed the final two films will remain true to J.K. Rowling's final book - even including more adult scenes of death and violence. He tells SnitchSeeker.com, "David (Yates, director) as well as (screenwriter) Steve Kloves haven't shied away from the more severe stuff in it that was in the book. It's bloody and it's gory and it's very real."
"(They're) trying to keep as much stuff as they can from the book in the film. We're going to stick to the book and we're gonna say, 'Look, some of it is quite harrowing, some of it's quite serious. People do die.' It's not sugar-coated. It's right there, it's quite raw and all the performances have had to step up."
