  Potter film should be finished next week

Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets should be finished by Wednesday, 9 October, according to the movie's producer David Heyman.

Speaking exclusively to Newsround's Lizo on the film set of Chamber of Secrets, he said: "I think it's a big step forward in many ways. It's more adventurous, and there's more humour."

More action

The new film has more big action sequences like the giant spiders, the Basilisk and the flying car.

And Heyman says the Quidditch sequences are "a big improvement on the first".

Other plans

Heyman also runs his own film company called Heyday Films. It plans to bring two other children's books to the big screen.

Molly Moon's Incredible Book of Hypnotism, by Georgia Byng, is about a young girl who discovers how to hypnotise people.

And Cirque du Freak, by Darren Shan, is about a young boy who becomes a half-vampire.

Heyman says he's "very excited" about both projects.

Ideas for Azkaban

Before those come to the screen though, he's working on Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.

It'll be directed by Alfonso Cuaron. They've already been to Edinburgh to discuss ideas with JK Rowling.

"We sat down with her and talked through some Alfonso's initial thoughts for the third film, and she was thrilled," Heyman reveals.

In the meantime, the world premiere of Chamber of Secrets will be in London on 3 November.
