Harry PotterEven the merest whisper of a rumor that there might be more "Harry Potter" movies is enough to set the Internet on fire. Which is what happened a few days ago when the New York Daily News reported that Warner Bros. executives wanted to turn the "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" play into a trilogy of movies.

Well, sad to say, the rumors are just that. The studio told the Huffington Post in a statement that there are "no plans for there to be a film."

The initial report also noted that Warner Bros. hoped to bring back Daniel Radcliffe as the famed Boy Who Lived (now, the Man Who Lived?). Of course, Radcliffe is only 27 and in "Cursed Child," Harry is near 40. Then again, the actor himself has left room for the possibility of reprising his most famous role.

"The circumstances would have to be pretty extraordinary. But then I am sure Harrison Ford said that with Han Solo, and look what happened there!" he said. "So I am saying no for now, but leaving room to backtrack in the future."

So, never say never, right?
