I would love it if Cuaron signed on to direct Half-Blood Prince and Book 7. IMO, he got the Harry Potter universe exactly right in PoA.

As a few people have already said, I think Tim Burton would be a good pick because of the dark and magical touch he could bring to the movies.

Also, I admire Peter Jackson's work with LoTR, and I think he would de an awesome job with HP, but really since both HP and LoTR and big fantasy series, there would be too much comparison between the two, and we don't need more.

i would definitely pick chris columbus. he did such a good job with the first and second movie. i personally thought the third movie was badly done and i didn't like that directer. chris columbus stuck by the book and i thought he did a better job of making it look like a magical world.

I personally hope they don't get Chris Columbus back. I thought the 1st and 2nd movies were pretty awful, though I think that may have just been down the lack of experience that the young actors had. I loved what was done with the 3rd movie - though it felt a little sparse, you could tell that it was just the bare bones of the story, and even then some things were left out. However, I adored the darkness that was brought to it, which is good because that's the same feel that I get from the book itself.

I certainly hope they get Tim Burton on one of them (alongside composer-wonder Danny Elfman, whose music makes almost half of the brilliance of Tim Burton's works....) There's someone else I've got in my head but I can't for life of me remember his name or what films he's done.

Peter Jackson did great with LotR, so I think he would do a great job with HP

I thought the first 3 movies were pretty bad, so I'm just hoping that someone who is actually talented at the film-making will do it.

I'd love to see Peter Jackson take a crack at Harry Potter films. Both writing and directing. He'd be brilliant.

My top pick would be Steven Spielburg. He's a great director and I think he'd do a great job with the movies.

I think it would be either Joss Whedon (because he did such a great job with Buffy in portraying all the teenage angst, etc) or Peter Jackson (because he did a wonderful job trimming down LOTR without loosing too much of the story).

I kinda like the different directors approaches to the different films, it's kind of a way for different people to share their vision of the HP universe. JKR is very involved with every aspect of the movies, so she isn't going to let Warner Bros. release a horrible movie. Personally, I'd like to see Bryan Singer give it a shot. I thought he did great on x-men and x2.

I really don't know much about directors, except for watching them give out the Oscars!

I think Steven Spielberg would do a wonderful job, though. He has done drama, sci-fi, everything. This means he wouldn't pigeon-hole it into a particular genre, but make a universally-appealing story.

Tarantino might be a big change --- kinda like Pulp Fiction without the profanity, drug use and gratuitous violence.

Terry Gilliam or Peter Weir.

I would have to say Peter Jackson.
Runner ups would be: Jerry Bruckheimer, Steven Spielberg, Tim Burton, and Alfred Hitchcock.

I really truly admired the work and effort Peter Jackson put in the Lord Of The Rings Trilogy.
I'm sure he would do an amazing job.
