    she was also right in predicting doom (ch.25) for DD in HBP...
    Another hint, I believe, that shows DD knew his death was coming...

    I think it would be great to have her but im not sure they will because they will most likely focus on the main points to make the story come across on the big screen. I know Treylawney should make an appearance but the way directors cut footage that is one i see left on the cutting room floor unfortunately.

    I don't think Emma Thompson is essential to be cast in the Trelawney role. It can, and likely will, be parsed down to a minor role in the film version of the story. It shouldn't be whittled down but I think it will be...:(

    You know, we should probably move this OOTP discussion over to the OOTP thread.

    Agreed with Boogie. One note though, I misread Emma Thompson to mean Emma Watson. 8-}

    I was so confused trying to figure out why you guys were talking about having Hermione play Trelawney.

    I am wondering as to why though, this is the GENERAL thread for HP right? and it has Spoilers already in the title. Granted we do have a specific thread for OOTP, btu a little banter about it in here I wouldn't thnk would be out of order

    No one is banning OotP discussion in here. I was just stating that if it gets too terribly specific then it needs to be moved over to it's dedicated thread. Sorry if I conveyed something different.

    The Leaky Cauldron just posted that Terry Gilliam, of Monty Python and subsequent sci-fi fame, has been listed by IMDB as directing Half-Blood Prince.

    I'd love this to be true, but I doubt it. IMDB is about as reliable as ? something very unreliable (my metaphors are lacking, alright?)

    Does anyone have any thoughts on who they think will or should play Horace Slughorn?
    Im trying to think of some British actors who would fit the part...?
