Harry Potter is about to find himself on the wrong side of the tracks.
In an interview with Empire magazine on his upcoming film, “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince,” the sixth installment in the Potter odyssey, star Daniel Radcliffe compared aspects of the movie to the 1996 heroin drama “Trainspotting.”
“There’s a fair amount of sexual energy and there are some drug parallels,” Radcliffe told Empire. “We have a couple of what David Yates, the director, calls our ‘Trainspotting moments.’ That’s two films I never thought would be mentioned in the same breath.”
The more mature content will build on previous “Potter” films, which each span a year at the magical school of Hogwarts and have seen Radcliffe and the young cast grow up on screen.
“Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince,” due for a holiday 2008 release via Warner Bros, recently finished filming.
