Where's Peeves?

I was just wondering if anyone knew any reason as to why Peeves was cut from both films?

On mugglenet.com (http://www.mugglenet.com/cast-nonhuman.shtml), it shows Peeves down in the cast list for both films (played by Rik Mayall) and yet he did not appear in either of them

Chris Columbus decided to cut all of Peeve's scenes in the first movie due to the long running time of the movie. He didn't even bother to shoot Peeve's scenes for the second one.

Well so far Peeves hasn't been an essential character in any of the books so far, if he does become one in the next 3 not sure what they will do.

The guy who wrote the scripts for the two movies is supposed to have been told by JK what is going to happen in the next 3 books. If he didn't felt useful to introduce Peeves, my guess is that he won't be a major character in any of the books to come.

But was Peeves in the screenplay? It was my impression he was, but Columbus cut him...

Im sure he was in the script, he would've had one or two scenes. They casted an actor but then Columbus decided not to include him. But I don't think he actually shot his scenes.

Hmmm I dont know a lot about this but i think that they didnt ut him because he is not really important. I would have liked him in the movies though...

According to varying sources and information posted in this thread and this thread, Chris Columbus had his own personal reasons for cutting Peeves from the film. Apparently he doesn't like Peeves, as a character, much.

I don't really like that sort of logic, but I guess we have to put up with it.

Chris Rankin (Percival Weasley) said he shot the scenes with Rik Mayall (Peeves) but they got cut out in the end.

Poor Rik Mayall! Imagine having all of your scenes cut! They aren't even on the DVD! LOL

It's strange that those scenes aren't at the dvd, thats why I supposed Columbus wouldn't have shot them. Poor Mayal...

This maybe a off topic but I don't think Chris Columbus made a excellent director. There are couple of messy scenes like the earmuffs part, and have you people noticed that in every class there's Gryffindor, Slythin and Hufflepuff? And first one, I believe Hermione is always talking to Susan Bones which is Chris's daughter. He just wanted to put her in the screen more. Susan Bone is always right next to Hermione in all the classes. I don't know, I'm in irritatible mood.

i would of liked having Peeves, but i guess he wasn't AS important, but i hope they'll eventually introduce him at some point.

I doubt very hard that they will introduce him in one of the forthcomming movies because then people would be like: Where did he comes from? If he is such a trouble maker, we would have heard of him (or heard him) before! And then they would cry outrage, get up form their seat, ask for a refund and do book burning sessions outside the movie theaters... No, bad idea to introduce Peeves so late in the serie...

Sorry, my brain is working funny tonight... :sorry:

Me too. I guess he's not going to be in any of the movies then, unless the new director adds him into the movie! *hope springs eternal*

Maybe Cuaron likes Peeves. Who knows?
In PoA, however, he doesn't play an important role. He just sees Sirius Black attacking the Fat Lady and informs the others. He could be perfectly replaced by Sir Nick.

Is it just weird me or has anyone else heard Percy saying "Hallo, Peeves" in one of the scenes although they did not show Peeves there? I'm not very sure, but at least it seemed to me so. I'm probably hallucinating.
