Spielberg wasn’t ready to commit to Harry Potter

Spielberg wasn’t ready to commit to Harry PotterWashington, Jan 10 : Steven Spielberg has revealed that he passed on the chance to get behind the camera for the first Harry Potter film as he didn’t feel he was ready to tackle an “all-kids” project.

The 65-year-old filmmaker admits that his own children thought that he was crazy when he turned down the project and allowed Chris Columbus to take over.

“I just felt that I wasn’t ready to make an all-kids movie and my kids thought I was crazy. And the books were by that time popular, so when I dropped out, I knew it was going to be a phenomenon,” Contactmusic quoted him as telling Digital Spy.

However, the director is still convinced that he made the right choice.

“But, you know, I don’t make movies because they’re gonna to be phenomenons. I make movies because they have to touch me in a way that really commits me to a year, two years, three years of work,” he added.
