Harry Potter could be set to bring magic to Eastbourne
Eastbourne could be the setting for the Quidditch World Cup in the next Harry Potter film.

A newspaper report says a cliff top site, near Beachy Head, is the first choice for Warner Brothers - location managers for The Goblet of Fire.

Eastbourne council denied the report, but said the company scouted the area and also three West Country locations.

A spokesman for the film company said locations were never confirmed until definite arrangements had been made.

Harry Potter's arch-enemy Lord Voldemort will be played by actor Ralph Fiennes and Miranda Richardson is to play journalist Rita Skeeter.

In the first three films, only Voldemort's spirit has been visible, but he returns in the flesh for the first time in the fourth movie.

Filming on the fourth Potter movie started on 25 June and is scheduled to be in cinemas in November 2005.

Author JK Rowling has revealed the title of the sixth book in the Harry Potter series - Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince.
