Following the success of the stage play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, it has been reported that Warner Bros are keen to make a film trilogy based on the story, and have already approached Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint about returning to the incredibly popular franchise in their roles as Harry, Ron and Hermione.

According to historian and journalist Jim Hill, the trio who starred in the original eight films have already spoken to Warners Bros about eventually returning to the franchise. Chatting to the Unofficial Universal Orlando podcast, he said: "I have heard that Warner Bros has actually had conversations with [Emma], with Rupert, and, of course, Daniel about Cursed Child, because they want this to be, for lack of a better term, Harry Potter: The Force Awakens. They want this trilogy of movies to have the actors that we know and love from the original films, that we watched grow up, as adults and, of course, they're hiring a bunch of new, younger actors to play their children with the hope that, if we can lean on JK [Rowling], maybe there'll be The Cursed Adolescent."

Daniel has previously spoken about potentially returning as Harry Potter for films in the future, telling Hollywood Reporter: "I'm never going to close the door; that would be a stupid thing to do. But I think I'll be happy enough and secure enough to let someone else play it." He even spoke about playing an older Harry for a potential Cursed Child film, saying: "At the moment it's not even a concern because I'm too young to play the character, but even in 10 years' time I would still feel strange about going back to it. There's a part of me that's like, some things are better left untouched."
