"Harry Potter" fans have had it good the last couple of years, with lots of new Potter-centric content to devour from a wealth of sources, including fan site Pottermore, the new prequel flick "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" (and its four upcoming sequels), and the sequel play "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child." But according to "Potter" creator J.K. Rowling, that embarrassment of riches does not include a "Cursed Child" trilogy featuring the original film franchise's actors.
Rowling took to Twitter on Friday to deny reports that Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint were negotiating deals to reprise their roles as Harry, Hermione, and Ron in a "Cursed Child" series that was to have been released around the year 2026, when their ages matched up to those of the characters in the play. The rumor mill started churning when blogs picked up on a recent podcast that alluded to an alleged conversation between film distributor Warner Bros. and the trio of actors about reuniting for a "Force Awakens"-style series that would have them return to the roles that made them famous.
