It could be due to lack of finance, it could be nostalgia, but something is egging the former Ronald of Harry Potter to make public remarks that a Harry Potter reboot / television series could be what the world needs. I believe that Amazon likewise believed to know that the world needed a Lord of the Rings reboot / television series. Not so sure how that’s working out. But I digress. Let’s hear what the now approaching 40 year old Grint has to say.
As per Variety, Rupert Grint said in a new interview with GQ Magazine UK that a “Harry Potter” reboot is almost inevitible, therefore he’d love if Warner Bros. did it as a television series instead of a movie.
Grint, who played Ron, rose to international fame playing Ron Weasley opposite Daniel Radcliffe as Harry and Emma Watson as Hermione in the original “Harry Potter” film franchise, which spanned eight movies from 2001 to 2011.
“I’d love to see ‘Harry Potter’ be adapted into a TV show,” Grint said. “I think it would really work. I’m sure the films will get remade, anyway.”
Grint said that he feels “proud” to have co-led the “Harry Potter” film franchise, but he added, “I think there’d be a feeling of passing the baton, letting someone else play Ron. It’s weird because I’m protective over him, I could relate to him so much, and then I was picked to bring him to life. That’s hard to let go. But it would be nice to, as well.”
