  Swinton will not play Trelawney in Potter 3
Updated 03 July 2003, 16.57

With several weeks of filming still to go on Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, the biggest question is who will play Professor Trelawney.

There have been reports on the internet that actress Tilda Swinton is set to play the part of the Divination Teacher.

Although many think she would be perfect for the role, studio insiders have told CBBC Newsround she won't be in the movie.

And it's not because they didn't want her.

It's because it's believed while she was approached at an early stage, film scheduling difficulties meant she couldn't take part in the movie.

Who's for Ludo?

Book four: The Goblet of Fire
No casting yet for Goblet

Meanwhile there have also been reports that an Australian called Martin Landham has been cast as Ludo Bagman in the fourth movie.

But with the script for Goblet of Fire still being written, and a director for the film still to be confirmed it seems very unlikely any casting for the movie will be decided until filming finishes on Prisoner of Azkaban.

But we'll keep our crystal balls out to make sure you know asap!
