Mike Newell: I'll Bring My Own Touch To Potter

British director MIKE NEWELL is determined to bring his own vision to the fourth HARRY POTTER film, but has vowed to keep the identity of the previous movies.

The FOUR WEDDINGS AND A FUNERAL filmmaker is looking forward to adding his personal touch to the blockbusting franchise when he makes HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE, set for release in 2005.

He follows in the footsteps of American CHRIS COLUMBUS, who made the first two films, and Mexican ALFONSO CUARON, whose HARRY POTTER AND THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN is due out later this year (JUN04).

He says, "Each of the first three films were made by a foreigner with a very particular view of England.

"Chris Columbus saw it as a wonderful kind of NEVER-NEVER land. Alfonso Cuaron thinks of it as somewhere dark with a lot of stress, and rain, in it.

"But there is a progression there which I am going to follow."
