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.
I would also love to see characters from the previous films turn up because this would echo what Jo did. WB has made plenty of money from this series so they can hardly plead inability to pay good actors to do walk-on parts. Certainly no actor was harmed by appearing in HP, lol.
So, “no comment” means ‘yes’?! I sure would love to see her back, she did a great job with the little that was given to her in GOF.
by reading all the other comments i think i mite be the only one that believes this but if Rita Skeeter is included in D, won’t that just fill more time when more important characters and scenes could be taking place? Although i would like to see a lot of the actors/actressess that have appeared in the previous films return, especially for the Battle of Hogwarts
Its such a great thing that they are making 2 films out of DH, this way they dont have to cut as much stuff, its so good!
She was an awesome Rita!!!!! I too think it would be great if everyone from the previous movies came back for this one, like some huge reunion! Even just for the battle, so not huge parts just see them fighting! Awesome!
I hope this is so, after all we will definitely get her book in the film, so even if they just want get a bit of film to serve as her author picture on “the life and lies of Albus Dumbledore” at least we will see her again.
