GoF will be Dursley-Free
The film of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire looks like it will be a Dursley-free zone, with none of Harry's family featuring in the fourth movie.
Actor Richard Griffiths' agent told Newsround Online that Richard was "very disappointed" not to be appearing as Uncle Vernon in the film.
Griffiths also told a newspaper that he was hoping for a fans' revolt.
He said he'd even asked JK Rowling to try and get his character re-instated, but the fourth book is very long.
Griffiths is reported as saying "I said to JK Rowling: "Couldn't the Dursleys turn up to an open day at Harry's school or something,' but she said, 'I don't think so'."
The book of The Goblet of Fire is so long that there as no way that the filmmakers could fit everything into the movie.
It now looks as if the action will start at The Burrow or the Quidditch World Cup.
Although he says he won't be in this film, Richard Griffith says he's hoping to be back for Order of the Phoenix.
