Heyman on Casting of GoF
Veritaserum got a hold of producer David Heyman for a few moments after the junket, and was able to grab some info from him.
"With each of our films, we begin working on it before the other one comes out, so we've been working on this one for five months." Heyman also said that "we are in negotiations with Imelda Staunton" for the role of Professor Umbridge in the movie.
Staunton said on ITV last week that she had been chosen for the role, but it now seems as though that announcement was somewhat premature. More updates on that topic as they come.
Heyman also told Veritaserum that Luna Lovegood auditions are going "really well. Early days yet, but we're, you know, we're meeting, and look forward to finding her. We've seen lots of girls - a couple thousand.... We scour." He also said that casting directors will continue searching for Luna Lovegood for "as long as it takes."
