Rita Returns? Rumor Alert on Miranda Richardson Back for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Rumor Alert: Credible word has reached TLC that actress Miranda Richardson is in negotiations to reprise her role as scandal monger and Life and Lies of Albus Dumbledore author Rita Skeeter in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. TLC spoke directly to reps for Ms. Richardson today, and when asked if they could deny or confirm the report, was told several times "no comment." 

Readers will recall recently producer David Heyman told Empire magazine they are indeed still casting for the final films in the Harry Potter movies. As such, we must keep this new report about Ms. Richardson, who gave such a delightful performance as the nasty Rita in Goblet of Fire, firmly in the rumor category for now, until Warner Bros makes a formal announcement regarding the cast of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

What would Rita do exactly? Just read stuff?
Or would they scrap Aunt Muriel and just have her?

Cool! That would be good if they include the whole Life and Lies subplot.

I can see them doing the bit where she is interviewed about the book in the first person, like watching it on TV… or watching it in the paper in sepia tones (kind of like how they had her voice reading the paper that harry crunched up and threw into the fire in GOF.)

I can’t stand Rita but I do hope she’ll be back. She was just a lil annoying in the books.

It would be cooler if she had had a part in OotP… seems a bit disjointed… but she is an interesting character
