Empire Magazine was able to catch up with David
Heyman, the producer of Harry Potter, and get him to say a few
words about Goblet
of Fire. The most surprising suggestion is now that the
series has an English director, the Goblet of Fire film will be
the most funny Potter movie to date. What are you trying to say?
Heyman on Goblet of Fire
It is true, even though the Goblet of Fire
book was darker than its predecessors, it still had a good deal of humor.
Heyman also gave a few extra details on the film, mentioned in the snippet
Having an English director for the first time is really interesing. Mike Newell really understands not just the Harry Potter world, but the idea of a British boarding school. He's really brought that out in the humour. I think this will be the funniest of the films so far. Mike was a big fan of what Alfonso did with the series, he has continued with that look, but now we have even greater demands. This one has far more
action and CGI with the epic Tri-Wizard trounament.
For Harry Potter and the Goblet of
Fire, we now have a gang of kids that are more grown up and reaching
sexual maturity. So expect to see some love triangles and jealousy, along
with a couple of dragons.
