Rumor: Warner Bros. thinking of firing Daniel Radcliffe

According to The Daily Mail in the UK, executives at Warner Bros, producers of the Harry Potter movies, are said to have been "utterly dismayed" by publicity shots of Radcliffe for his appearance in Equus, which starts preview performances tonight, as well as the fact that he spends a full 10 minutes on stage without his clothes.

The article in The Daily Mail says studio chiefs are worried that the scenes could damage their multi-million-dollar film franchise and could even lead to Daniel Radcliffe being replaced as Harry Potter in the films.

One of the executives was quoted as saying, "Warner Bros have been building up their publicity machine for Harry's first - chaste - screen kiss when the next Potter film comes out in the summer.

"Now our star is out there. We've been blown completely out of the water by this."

Equus officially opens at the Gielgud Theatre on 27 February. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix premieres in theaters this summer on July 13, and the final Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, will be published one week later, on July 21.
