    While talking to People in an interview, Matthew Lewis, the face of Neville Longbottom said, “It’s not something I’m looking at or want to do but would not turn my nose up at.” Lewis is not interested in making a comeback. He added, “I’d be very interested to see if it was Neville as an adult — a whole different vibe. That could be interesting. I would certainly look at that and consider it.” The 34-year-old actor said that he is always looking to do something new. 

    The reason I got into this job in the first place was because I have a very short attention span,” he explained. “I am very, very poor at maintaining anything for any length of time. I’ve had many, many hobbies and passions over the years. Not a single one do I still do. I fall madly in love with things and then almost immediately forget about them.” Lewis continued, “I’ve been a nurse, I’ve been a police officer, I’ve been a soldier, I’ve been a wizard, I’ve been all these different things. I never know what’s up next, and I love that.”

    Warner Bros is looking at a 2026 release for the Harry Potter series adaptation. Apart from Matthew Lewis, the lead of the movies Daniel Radcliffe has also backed out of the project. Radcliffe said in an interview, “I think it’s very much like they’re going for a new series,” he said. 

    There would be somebody else playing Harry. So I think it would be very weird for me to show up,” the Tony Award winner said. “I’m very excited to see what other people do with it. The comparison I’ve made is to a story like Sherlock Holmes.” He continued to say, “I think the Potter series of books was always gonna be bigger than one interpretation or one franchise, so it’ll be cool to see the torch get passed on.” Since the original cast is not going to feature we are in to see some new faces. However, Warner Bros has not revealed anything about the casting or other details.
