"Half-Blood Prince" Filming News: Threat of Strike to Affect Harry Potter Six?

There are a couple pieces of news to tell you this morning in relation to filming for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

The Guardian is reporting today that the threat of a looming actors strike due next summer is affecting the production of some big budget films in the UK, and they mention it could affect the filming of HBP. Noting that this strike “looks set to take place in June next year and will in fact manifest itself as a combined strike by the Screen Actors Guild, the Directors Guild of America and the Writers Guild of America (West) against the Producers Guild of America. The predicted strike has already sent Hollywood into a frenzy of planning, with many studios reportedly accelerating production of films to avoid gaps in their release schedules.” On this list of movies possibly to be affected is the sixth Harry Potter film.

At this time we have heard no change in production schedules, as the actors are in rehearsal this week for the movie, and we will update you should any more develop on this front. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is still confirmed to be released in theaters on November 21, 2008.

On a related note, as a followup to the news TLC first told you about a few weeks ago, noted cinematographer Bruno Delbonnel has confirmed in a note written in his native French, that he will begin principal photography on Half-Blood Prince next week on September 24. Thanks to UHP who also let us know that Mr. Delbonnel also confirmed to them that fellow French native Jany Temime is returning yet again as costume designer for the new Harry Potter movie.
