“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” Script Left in Pub
A copy of the script of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” was recently left in a club in the United Kingdom after several staff members working on the final chapter of the wizard boy’s saga allegedly had one beer too many. According to U.K. tabloid The Sun, one of its reader’s found the script on the floor of a club in Kings Langley, Herts, where “Harry Potter” lead star Daniel Radcliffe is sometimes seen with other “Deathly Hallows” staff.
The crewmembers reportedly went to the Waterside Tavern on Thursday to celebrate their being able to catch up after falling behind schedule. The first part of the film is due for release in November, while the last part of “Deathly Hallows” is scheduled for a July 2011 showing. The Sun, which returned the script to Warner Bros., said that the “private and confidential” document shows that producers are making significant changes to the book version of “Deathly Hallows.”
Warner Bros. said that it is now investigating how the script ended up under a table in the club. However, Potter fans need not worry that Radcliffe might be involved in the incident as the 20-year-old actor was not with the group that left the script, witnesses said.
