Daniel Radcliffe has admitted that if ‘Harry Potter And The Cursed Child’ is eventually adapted into a movie then he would “think about” returning to the wizarding role that made him a household name.

It has been heavily speculated that ‘Harry Potter And The Cursed Child’ will be adapted for the big-screen sooner rather than later, especially after ‘Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them’s’ $810 million box office haul.

During his chat on Good Morning Britain, via Metro, on Wednesday morning Daniel Radcliffe admitted that he really doesn’t know if the speculation regarding a cinematic version of the play are true, but he did confirm he’d be interested in returning if they were.

“I really don’t know,” Radcliffe remarked. “I think that’s all highly theoretical talk. If it was ever to become more than theoretical, I would of course think about it!”

Daniel Radcliffe has never ruled out returning as Harry Potter. After being asked by the Radio Times in the summer about possibly reprising the part for a hypothetical ‘Cursed Child’ film, Radcliffe revealed that he’d “never say never.”

However, J.K Rowling has been quick to play down rumours of an imminent ‘Cursed Child’ film. She even took to Twitter in January to deny speculation that a trilogy was already in development.

Which is understandable, as she’s currently working on the sequel to ‘Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them’, which is due out in 2018, and she’s already confirmed that the franchise will eventually expand to five films.
