  Potter film 'most expensive ever'
Updated 20 January 2004, 11.18
The new Harry Potter film is going to be really expensive
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is going to be the most expensive film ever made according to its director.

Mike Newell told paper The Sunday Mail: "I think of myself as being really lucky. I'm going to make the most expensive film there has ever been."

That could see the budget for the film at over 110m, which is how much Titanic is reported to have cost.

Waterworld and Terminator 3 are thought to have cost almost 100m, the same as each of the Lord of the Rings movies.

Newell also talked about the casting of the new film, saying that it was proving difficult to find an actor to play Madame Maxime.

He said he was in Paris looking for "giant women" and "French schoolgirls", presumably to play the headmistress and pupils of Beauxbatons.

But it'll be a long wait until fans get to see the film, as it's not expected in cinemas until 2005.
