Another Confirmation on the Aging Process and Cast for Epilogue of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Several times in the past, we've reported on various cast members, such as Rupert Grint (Ron), discussing the epilogue for the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and the possible aging process to be used on the original cast members. Today, MTV has a new article where film producer David Heyman also weighs in on the epilogue, noting:

“We will shoot it,” producer David Heyman confirmed for MTV News. Rowling wrote a flash-forward ending to “The Deathly Hallows” that shows where the characters end up as they grow older. Heyman also indicated that the original Hogwarts actors would be filling those roles for the sequence, rather than being replaced by older lookalikes.

“Yes,” he acknowledged, nodding that aging done to the characters would use the existing cast.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is currently in production in London, England, with Part One due in theaters November of 2010, and Part Two, July of 2011.

Wouldn’t it be nice if they had a “progressive aging” like through a collage of “Daily Prophet” articles showing how they’d spent the last 19 years?

that’s awesome. After I saw the wonderful work they did with Benjamin Button, I’m sure the cast will really seem older.

I’m so pleased, I love the Epilogue, can’t wait to see Albus Severus and hope that they keep the dialogue exactly as written by Jo.

This is good. Glad to hear. It’s like the perfect end. I wonder if they will cast Rose, Hugo, Albus, James, Lily, Victorie and Teddy? (I hope so!) x

I am happy to hear this even thoug I do believe I’ve heard it before. Leaving out this scene would be bad as it gives the story a proper ending, imo. I wonder who they’ll cast as the nextgeneration/what they will look like. Draco better have that receeding hairline.

This is excellent news — they are definitely doing the right thing, and I’m sure the results will be fantastic. Except I don’t like thinking that it’s really going to be over, ya know? :o( Sigh.

I’m glad they’re keeping the epilogue. I would be upset if they didn’t. Also glad that they’re not trying to get older look-a-likes and just aging the current actors. That will make it much better.
