New Harry Potter Deathly Hallows pic; Mark Millar says Kick-Ass2 is now official; The Walking Dead season two; Rise Of The Apes pics

New Deathly Hallows Pic
A picture says a thousand words. Which is lucky, because we can’t think of many to say about this, except, um, it’s Harry Potter going upstairs at Grimmauld Place…

Kick-Ass 2 Gets The Official Green Light
According to Ain’t It Cool , Mark Millar announced on Radio 5 yesterday that Kick-Ass 2 has now been given the official green light, partly thanks to its success on DVD. Meanwhile, Comic Book Movies reports Millar as saying, “We’re probably about nine months away from production starting, at the earliest, because Matthew Vaughn’s got to do X-Men: First Class . Matthew just wants to get X-Men done next year then hopefully we’ll just go straight into Kick-Ass 2 , that’s the plan. That’s a massive pressure because Chloe in particular is going to change physically quite dramatically over the next few years, so we have to do the sequel while everyone still looks like they’re in high school.”

The Walking Dead Season Two Already Being Planned
A second season of The Walking Dead could start shooting as early as next February, if Fangoria is to be believed… and that’s before the first season has even begun airing. AMC must be pretty sure it has a hit on its hands. Apparently in the magazine version of Fangoria , producer Gale Ann Hurd also reveals that season two could be 13 episodes long (the first is a mere six).

Rise Of The Apes Pics
BlastR has posted four pics of behind-the-scenes shenanigans from Rise Of The Apes , the Planet Of the Apes prequel/sequel/reboot/reimagining/whatever. Dunno why, but we think the guy in the motion capture suit could be playing Caesar.
