ComingSoon.net was at the Harry Potter press junket in New York this morning and has posted a fabulous article summarizing what cast and crew had to say about parts one and two of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows at the event, as well as what they said in exclusive interviews with ComingSoon.net after the press junket. Do not read the article if you have not read the book or do not want to spoil the movies! Otherwise, you can read it by clicking here. An excerpt with no spoilers:
Director David Yates and the cast are about five months into shooting the two halves of the film, scheduled for November 19, 2010 and July 15, 2011, and he mentioned that they would have very different looks even though he's using the same crew. He told ComingSoon.net in an exclusive interview after the press conference that they've shot roughly 85% of Part 1 and 10% of Part 2, the latter due to the availability of the actors.
