Daniel Radcliffe Fears 'Harry Potter' Will Get Remakes in 30 Years

Daniel Radcliffe

The depicter of the title character worries that filmmakers cannot hold to make new versions of the films since J.K. Rowling's books continue becoming bestsellers.

"Harry Potter" star Daniel Radcliffe fears he won't be the last kid to play the boy wizard. He has a sneaking suspicion the franchise will be re-imagined for a new generation when he's in his 50s. The young Brit worries that movie executives won't be able to resist remaking the Potter films as J.K. Rowling's hit books continue to top bestseller lists around the world.

He tells Entertainment Weekly magazine, "The books will be around for decades to come which makes me wonder if, in 30 years time, we will be seeing remakes of all these movies. I have a very dark suspicion that that will happen, although I don't particularly want it to."

"Harry Potter" film franchise recently got Special Recognition Award at 2010 National Movie Awards. The young wizards movie series will end with "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" which is split into two parts; "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I" which is due for November 19 release both in U.S. and U.K., and "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II" which is scheduled for July 15, 2011 premiere.

    If not new movies, why not a series to really get all the details right. Say 7 seasons (one for each book) with 10-20 episodes :)

    He's right... they WILL remake all the Harry Potter films- only they won't wait 30 years. I give it 10 years tops.
