Ever since news first broke that Warner Bros. and producers planned to split Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows into two movies so nothing would be left out of the theatrical adaptation, fans have wondered which chapter of J.K Rowling's seventh novel would serve as the climax of the first film. While producer David Heyman and leading star Daniel Radcliffe are not ready to confirm the exact spot in their latest interviews with Empire, the two did talk about spot they chose to end the part of the story and think it's a great place to keep fans in anticipation for the second installment.

"We've played around with a couple of places," said Heyman, "and ultimately settled on a place that we think is very exciting, and I think quite bold, in that it's not necessarily where one might expect. You want to give a sense of completion, on one hand, but a sense that there's another piece, more to come. We tried one and then Steve (Kloves, screenwriter) came up with the idea to try it another way and when we tried that, it felt just right."

Daniel Radcliffe also talked about the final chapter of the final novel. Obvious spoiler warning here for fans who haven't read the novels. Click here to see his thoughts on adapting those final moments.

There will be more on the interviews in the next issue of Empire Magazine, which hits stands on April 23, 2009.

I remember watching Lord of the rings Fellowship and hearing people say, what a strange ending for a movie.  I laughed knowing they didn't understand that there were two more to go.  Now where will they split up the Hobbit?  That's my question.

I heard Steve Kloves decided to end the first Deathly Hallows with Dumbledore's coming out party.

something tells me that coming out party would include that Wolf Pack Jarrod's going on about in another article...


for me, a good ending of Part 1 would take place in Godric's Hollow after....well....the snake bit.....I just don't want to spoil the surprise....

Hey almost, my mother-in-law was one of those people who didn't know it was a trilogy.  According to Mrs. fft, when the credits came up, her mom stood up and said out loud, "Whaaat?? That can't be the end of the movie!"
