With production currently going on in the UK on Half-Blood Prince fans are eagerly waiting to hear who will direct the seventh movie in the franchise, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

Previously, director Guillermo del Toro voiced his desire to direct and today mentions in an interviewopens in new window that he is "definitely interested” in the movie. Now all the fans have to do is wait and see if he will get the job.

Guillermo's thoughts:

I’m definitely interested, now that the movies have grown darker. They have a contrast between the gloomy existence of the kid and the world he’s exposed to. They have evolved into a really nice universe.

I got [Deathly Hallows] for my daughter and she was like ‘When are you going to give it to me?’. I read it and I was very moved by the ending. It ends very much like a Dickens novel.
