Whilst many in the Harry Potter cast have been busy doing the last bits of filming for "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows", news has nonetheless surfaced about various actors' upcoming and ongoing projects. Firstly, Gary Oldman (Sirius Black) is among those tipped to star as George Smiley in a film adaptation of John Le Carré's cold war thriller Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. British newspaper The Guardian reports that David Thewlis (Remus Lupin) is also rumoured to be in casting negotiations for the film, which will be directed by Tomas Alfredson ("Let the Right One In").

"The Sweet Shop" production blog has been updated once more with a new video of Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom) talking about MWS Media, the video production company behind the film. You can watch the short video right here in our video galleries. Parents please note: the video features one bleeped out swear word and therefore may be unsuitable for young children.

The Hospital Club has opened voting for the top 100 influential people in the creative industries.
