Filming on Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will begin in two weeks, according to a new report by the BBC. Pre-production at Leavesden Studios was recently halted when a stuntman suffered spinal injuries after a fall. The studio has since reopened.
“We have not begun filming yet and will not do so for another two weeks. This has always been the case,” she said.
“Filming will commence mid-February and go through to spring 2009.”
Both Deathly Hallows: Part I and Part II will be shot back-to-back, so we believe the representative meant 2010.
