The French Harry Potter site, L’ Univers de Harry Potter , spoke to Jamie’s manager at the Cannes Film Festival. Jamie’s manager confirmed what had long been rumored on Harry Potter sites, that Jamie Campbell Bower would be playing the role of Grindelwald in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows film.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is currently filming on the UK seacoast. The next installment, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince was originally slated to open last November, but Warner Brothers changed their date to July (in fact they recently changed it to open two days earlier than announced) which opened up the opportunity for Twilight to run unchallenged in the teen market this past fall.
Congratulations to Jamie!
