Emma Watson, Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint reuniting for 'Harry Potter and the Cursed Child'?

[Version fran├žaise]

No. With the amount of sites reporting on this, you might have read or heard that the trio is set to reunite for Cursed Child but, as you can read below, that's not even what the original article was saying.

It all started with The Sun releasing an article about some "source" telling them:

"Warner Bros are currently looking at how to bring The Cursed Child to the big screen. It has been in their sights since the play proved to be so popular in the West End. It went onto the backburner for a while because there was so much work going on with the Fantastic Beasts franchise. A line has been temporarily drawn on that for now, especially given its lacklustre performance, so it’s full steam ahead when it comes to developing The Cursed Child. At the moment it is in very formative stages and they are discussing the next steps to move it forward. The dream would be to have major stars returning, including Daniel Radcliffe, but that is still incredibly far off. Everyone who works within the Harry world wants Daniel to be back, but first they have to iron out the plan for how many films it will be, a reworked script and budgets. The hope at the moment is that The Cursed Child could be made into two films – both which would pack as much punch, if not more, than the stage show."

It wasn't saying that any of the actor was "set" to return. The reason to lie? I'm guessing because this is a 6 year old rumour!!! They know it's old and that there's nothing to it so they have to make stuff up for people to click. 

Also, The Mirror, instead of spreading this false rumour, talked to Warner Bros. Discovery who confirmed "the report is false."

The Daily Express changed their article headline three times from, 'WB wants to make a Cursed Child movie' to 'Cursed Child movie in production' to 'Original trio signed up for Cursed Child movie'. I'm paraphrasing but that was the jist of them.

6 year old rumour? Wow, I didn't know it was that old, lol. I remember seeing this type of reports/articles three years ago.

"6 year old rumour? Wow, I didn't know it was that old, lol."

I was also surprised. I knew I had posted about it already so when I saw the blog post was from 2017, I actually counted on my fingers how many years ago that was because 6 years ago didn't feel right XD

dan as recent as last year said its not something he wants at this time and Emma has not acted for years at this point and moved to direct i find it all very unlikely

The sun is regarded as one of the worst red tops in the UK and about as credible as Reddit threads lmao

journalists need to actually read what the actors themselves are saying

I think it is inevitable that it will happen at some point as WB isn’t doing very well, and it’ll be like Star Wars where the 3 of them do eventually say yes but I can’t see that happening for another 8/10 years or so when Dan and Emma in particular are ready to come back to it.
