Mike Newell says Goblet of Fire is a really good thriller
[from an article about Mona Lisa Smile in the Sydney Morning Herald]
Director Mike Newell has been entrusted with the fourth Harry Potter instalment, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, due out next year.
Newell will be the third director to tackle a Harry tale. Directors, like actors, usually don't like doing sequels. Does Newell feel there is a stigma?
"Do I feel like a second-class citizen coming in as the third director and on movie number four? I don't actually feel like that.
"I'm very, very keen on this Harry Potter story. For my money, it is the best of all the books. It's a really good thriller because it's clean and sharp and clear. But it is a bit like making a Bollywood movie."
