Emma Thompson chooses Nanny film over Potter

Thursday April 16, 2009

British character actress Emma Thompson is set to make a second Nanny McPhee film, which she insists will be "a new story not a sequel". 
Starring in the movie about a magical governess means she won't be able to reprise her role as Professor Sybil Trelawney for Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows. But she reveals she isn't as emotionally and creatively attached to the boy wizard franchise as she is to her nanny role.
"(Those films) are more like doing a turn, whereas the Nanny McPhees are something I've written.  "They're very handmade... Those are the ones I really care about," she says
