Could Daniel Radcliffe possibly be about to reprise his famous role as Harry Potter? Sources claim it’s possible, with Warner Bros. studios reportedly in talks to acquire movie rights for JK Rowling’s recent play ‘The Cursed Child’ – and there’s only one person they want to play the lead!

On Wednesday (August 31st), the New York Daily News reported that Warners is looking to nail down the rights to a ‘Cursed Child’ movie, which could be ready as soon as 2020. Radcliffe played the boy wizard in eight feature films from 2001 to 2011, with actor Jamie Parker taking on the role of the adult Harry in the current stage show.

“Warners is secretly working on getting the movie rights... and of course in their minds only one man should be Harry,” said a source that the NYDN said was a ‘well-placed’ Hollywood insider.

“However he has made it clear that his mind is certainly not focused on returning to the role anytime soon — and that could be until he hits 40. He doesn't need to go back for money or to reboot his career, so he will need some persuading,” the insider continued.

A screenplay for the theoretical project has also been “settled”, according to the report, although Warner Bros. moved to deny the story later on Wednesday.

Speaking recently about whether he would open to a return to the role that launched him to worldwide fame, 27 year old Radcliffe told the Radio Times that he would never rule it out.

“It would depend on the script. The circumstances would have to be pretty extraordinary. But then I am sure Harrison Ford said that with Han Solo and look what happened there! So I am saying 'No' for now, but leaving room to backtrack in the future,” he said.
