In this dark and witty fable, Thompson portrays a person of unsettling appearance and magical powers who enters the household of the recently widowed Mr. Brown (Firth) and attempts to tame his seven exceedingly ill-behaved children. The children, led by the oldest boy Simon ("Love Actually"'s Thomas Sangster), have managed to drive away 17 previous nannies and are certain that they will have no trouble with this one. But as Nanny McPhee takes control, they begin to notice that their vile behavior now leads swiftly and magically to rather startling consequences.
It seems that Hogwarts will be one professor short with its last installment. According to MTV Movies Blog, actress Emma Thompson will not be returning for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and instead will be making a sequel to Nanny McPhee.
Thompson has appeared as Professor Sybil Trelawney in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, filming Nanny McPhee between the two films. She also added some details about the new Nanny McPhee film.Read More

The most veteran of all the kid actors, Thomas Sangster, who plays Simon, talked about having them there. 'They're both experienced actors you can learn from both of them in different ways. Colin was fun but when he wanted to work, we'd get down to it. He'd really try and push himself to the limit and Emma was kind of similar as well. When she needs to act, she will put aside all the jokes and do what she needs to do so, in that way, they're kind of similar but when they say 'cut' it's back to the fun again.' Thomas can also be seen in Tristan and Isolde, as a young Tristan; and he also had worked with Emma before in Love Actually.Read More
