Warner Bros. says it's bumping "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" from its planned November release into next summer.

The sixth installment in the blockbuster franchise about boy wizard Harry now will open July 17 rather than Nov. 21, the studio said Thursday.

Studio President and Chief Operating Officer Alan Horn says the studio has had success with past summer "Harry Potter" releases, including the fifth movie. Horn also says the Writers Guild of America strike had "impacted the readiness of scripts for other films — changing the competitive landscape for 2009 and offering new windows of opportunity that we wanted to take advantage of."
