Winslet For Fourth Potter Movie

English rose KATE WINSLET is in talks to star in the fourth HARRY POTTER movie - as a French wizard.

The TITANIC star, 29, has been asked to play FLEUR DELACOUR in the film adaptation of JK ROWLING's HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE, by director MIKE NEWELL.

Filming is set to begin next month (APR04) and Winslet's director husband SAM MENDES has been encouraging his stunning wife to accept, for the sake of their son JOE and her daughter MIA.

Mendes says, "Some weeks ago Kate had a meeting with the director and some producers of the Harry Potter movies.

"She was asked to have an important role as a young French wizard or something like that in the fourth film.

"She is still thinking about it. I told her to do it just for the kids. Mia and Joe will thank her in the future."

Winslet wouldn't be the first actress to star in the boy wizard films for her offspring - EMMA THOMPSON signed to play PROFESSOR SYBILL TRELAWNEY in HARRY POTTER AND THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN to impress her four-year-old daughter GAIA.
