Inside Move: Brit could fit 4th ‘Harry’

Newell may follow Columbus, Cuaron in director's chair

Will Mike Newell become the first Brit to helm a “Harry Potter”?

While the studio has yet to make a deal with Newell, whose next pic is the upcoming Julia Roberts vehicle “Mona Lisa Smile,” Warners is working with Newell’s ICM reps to see if one could be made.

The fourth installment, “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire,” is slated for a 2005 release, and Warner Bros. Pictures is eager to attach a director.

Alfonso Cuaron is directing the third installment, “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban,” which will be released on June 4. Chris Columbus directed the first two “Harry Potter” pics.

Newell’s credits include “Four Weddings and a Funeral” and “Donnie Brasco.”
