Harry Potter director David Yates is keen to tackle "a small film with a tiny budget" now that the wizard movies have ended, insisting he was "slightly indulged" with the multi-million dollar blockbusters and wants to be "challenged" again.
Yates worked on the last four films of the franchise and has received huge praise for the action-packed pictures.
But now the final installment, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, has wrapped and is nearing release, Yates is planning to scale down his movie projects.
He tells Reuters, "I am going to make a small film next - a very lean, mean, small film with a tiny budget. I don't know what it is yet.
"With big movies, you get slightly indulged because everything is there. And it is not healthy. You need to step away from that and be challenged again."
