Sure, the actors might talk about the different style to directing, but that doesn't mean we'll see a vast difference on the screen after Columbus and Rowling have their say about the final cut.I do. Rowling (while having final cut rights) has thus far only interfered with the script stage. Once it went to filming, she pretty much left the hell alone. And while Columbus has an influence, it's not like he's on the set from day-to-day. If he was there'd be no reason for him not to direct. I very much doubt this is on auto-pilot any more than Lord of the Rings is. No matter how you cut it, Cuaron doesn't have studio hack record. (And if you don't believe he stirring things up quite a bit, check out here for proof to the contrary) Just the Newsweek pictures alone point to a radically different voice behind the camera. The only way it could be less "auto pilot" would be to abandon Kloves' script and Rowling's source and go off on a tangent. And I don't know why anyone who's a fan of the book would want that.
