Details are sketchy but it has been confirmed that characters from the books will be featured in the show. The show is to be developed with two other producers: Sonia Friedman, who has worked on shows for Broadway and is currently involved with a BBC project adapting Hilary Mantel‘s Wolf Hall, and Colin Callender, who has had many successful West End shows.
JK Rowling is NOT writing the script however she is penning her debut film script for Warner Brothers which is Potter-related.
