Someone needs to give David Zaslav another math lesson or two. The Warner Bros CEO announced recently that he wants to bring the Harry Potter franchise back to the big screen. Unfortunately, the CEO got his numbers all mixed up after he claimed that it’s been “15 years” since we visited the Wizarding World.
According to Deadline, Zaslav spoke during Warner Bros Discovery’s Q3 earnings call. He announced that the company is going to focus on existing franchises and wanted to bring back big names such as Superman and Harry Potter. The CEO praised DC and Harry Potter for providing profits to Warner Bros in the past and hopes to find similar successes with them in the future. However, the CEO got his numbers wrong when he shared how long it’s been since Warner Bros worked those titles.
