JK Rowling to write Harry Potter spin-off film - Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Sep 12 2013

JK Rowling is to make her screenwriting debut in a new Harry Potter-themed film series, Warner Bros has announced.

The first film of the series will be titled Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. It, and the later films, will be adapted from the book of the same name that J.K. Rowling wrote in 2001 to support the charity Comic Relief.

Warner Bros said the film series was part of an "expanded creative partnership" with the best-selling author.

The eight Harry Potter films are the largest-grossing film franchise in history.
