The U.K. newsite, The Independent, reports that actress Helena Bonham Carter has been cast for the sixth Harry Potter film:

English rose Bonham Carter has most recently won plaudits for her portrayal of Harry Potter villain Bellatrix Lestrange, the female Death Eater (boo, hiss).

She is cast again for the sixth movie, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, scheduled to begin filming in two months for a November 2008 release. Her publicist said yesterday that Bonham Carter was not due back on the Potter set until the spring.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is scheduled to arrive in theatres in November, 2008.
