David Heyman Reveals "Deathly Hallows" Documentary is in the Works

While at CinemaCon in Las Vegas a few weeks ago, "Harry Potter" producer David Heyman spoke with MTV News and revealed that a behind-the-scenes documentary was shot during the production of "Deathly Hallows."

The award-winning British filmmaking Morgan Matthews ("The Fallen") was given complete access to the sets, crew, and actors, and according to Heyman, "it's not just pure gloss."

"He went behind the scenes and had incredible access to talent and crew and has made a documentary that is not yet complete, which shows the challenges of making the film — the tolls it takes on actors and crew," [Heyman] said. "It's not just pure gloss and everybody's happy. It's real. ... At the same time, it's really, really funny."
In addition to this documentary, Heyman and fellow producer David Barron talked about the vast amounts of on-set footage that was taken throughout the past ten years.
"It was a very well-documented production. We had a crew filming behind the scenes for the entire production, which is unheard of — and that's been for all the films," Barron explained. "There is material, and we'll see how it's used. I'm sure Warner Bros. will package it in some form or another."

excellent, I hope this dvd will be available as a stand alone and not packaged with some other edition of the movie after we have all already bought it though. It should be really good, I can’t wait to see it.

maybe they can explain why they choose not to follow some of the book when it came to the story! Ginny & the Weasley’s were short changed!!!!!

I think the documentary would be excellent. I hope they include some of the ways they filmed transformations, etc. The behind the scenes workings and the prop department would be interesting to see too.
