Filming for Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire was set to start today in Glencoe with second unit director, Peter McDonald. As previously reported, Glencoe is taking a supporting role in the film because of excessive rain.
McDonald will supervise the filming of mountain scenery and greenery in Glencoe as none of the action is due to be close up.
And, in the interests of continuity, the Glencoe Mountains, Glenfinnan Viaduct and the flat fields of Glen Nevis will continue to feature. The part of Glen Nevis where the quidditch match in Chamber Of Secrets took place, will be turned into a maze for The Goblet Of Fire filming. Mike Newell was said to be bowled over by the scenery in Scotland but the rain has forced filmmakers to move.
Most of the on-location shooting will take place in Exmoor, Devon.
