Warner Brothers trademarks HARRY POTTER Quidditch

What does Warner Bros have planned? It looks like they are setting certain Harry Potter projects aside.

Warner Bros. is cooking up something big for their Harry Potter franchise. They definitely aren’t done with it. On top of the spinoff Potter movie being written by J.K. Rowling, based on her faux textbook, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the studio has locked in some more trademarks that hint at some other films and forms of entertainment we might see for the franchise. One of which might lead to a sports movie that centers on Quidditch, which would be awesome! According to Bleeding Cool the registered trademarks include…

The other spinoff mini-book Quidditch Through The Ages.

The Quidditch teams Wimbourne Wasps, Chudley Cannons, Kenmare Kestrels.

The Quidditch expert Kennilworthy Whisp, and fictitious author of Quidditch Through The Ages.

Newt Scamander, the fictitious author of Fantastic Beasts.

The Potter book-within-a-book Tales Of Beedle The Bard.

Are you intrigued by what some are speculating to be a Quidditch movie?

Daniel Radcliffe in final talks for ‘Frankenstein’ role


Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe previously expressed interest in playing the character Igor in 20th Century Fox’s remake of Frankenstein. It looks like that interest has led him to actually landing the role in the movie! The actor is in final negotiations with the studio. Paul McGuigan is set to direct the film from a script by Max Landis (Chronicle).

The movie is described as being a sci-fi take on the original Mary Shelley story, which focuses on themes of friendship and redemption. In a previous interview, Landis went into a bit more detail revealing that it will be a period piece told from the perspective of the character Igor, and all the interesting misconceptions surrounding the mythology of the story and character. The movie will also explore where Igor came from, and if Victor Frankenstein was actually a doctor or a drop out. It’s also said to be a tale of friendship and redemption.

The hunchback character Igor is described as being pathologically dirty and dressed in old clown’s clothing. I’m actually looking forward to seeing Radciffe as this character, I’m sure he’ll end up giving a great performance!

This is just another peculiar role Daniel’s taken on. What do you think of all his odd choices, and do you think “Frankenstein” will be a hit or miss?
