Rumor Alert: Castle Set in Surrey to be used for Location Filming of Battle of Hogwarts This Fall?

Rumor Alert! There is a new report online today regarding a set built near Farham in Surrey, England for use in the new Robin Hood film that includes a castle. This report, complete with photos, says that after the crews finish production on RH, it will then be used for filming of Harry Potter 7. You can also see video of the facade of a castle which could very conceivably be useful as a set for the dramatic events of the battle of Hogwarts Castle at the end of the film. As exciting and frankly cool as this all sounds, this is very much unconfirmed so please keep this in the rumor category for now.

Thanks Matt and Heyguys.co.uk!

very cool, but I agree it doesn’t look very Potterish… more RH-ish. But am sure they will work their digital magic and transform it into the perfect castle.

Yeah it doesn’t really look like Hogwarts. But if they do use it, at least they’re making an effort :)

I doubt this is true. Isn’t Robin Hood a Universal Picture? Do film companies often share sets? Something tells me Stewart Craig would want to be in charge of building every set piece.

These photos are not from the Harry Potter movie, they are from Russell Crowe’s Robin Hood. I have been following that production as well.

i was walking my dog over swinley forest today in bracknell – I saw warner brother sets “forest” scenes…the security guard said they have now finished filming there. he wouldn’t confirm the film but when i asked if it was HP he winked and smiled and said “all I can say it is a film that there has been quite a few of….” I’m hoping it might be the voldemort/harry scenes

They could possible use it in one of the scenes where the giants smash down the walls.

The castle doesn’t look like Hogwarts; but I think they can fix it. They know what they are doing.
