Filming on Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will begin in two weeks, according to a new report by the BBC. Pre-production at Leavesden Studios was recently halted when a stuntman suffered spinal injuries after a fall. The studio has since reopened.
“We have not begun filming yet and will not do so for another two weeks. This has always been the case,” she said.
“Filming will commence mid-February and go through to spring 2009.”
Both Deathly Hallows: Part I and Part II will be shot back-to-back, so we believe the representative meant 2010.

J.K. Rowling received a Legion of Honour award today at an induction ceremony in Paris. She announced that her great-grandfather had received the same honour in 1924 for his courage in World War I, later asking French Harry Potter fans to pardon her for giving the book’s primary antagonist (Lord Voldemort) a French name.
“Thanks to this internationally renowned saga, you have contributed to giving young people the taste for reading again,” Sarkozy said before pinning the Legion of Honor medal on her. “With you, they understand that reading is not punishment, but a source of pleasure.”
