How we'd love to use the Polyjuice Potion and sneak into Warner Brothers to find more about the upcoming Harry Potter spinoff!
In a recent interview, Warner Bros. President of Creative Development and Worldwide Production Greg Silverman revealed that J.K. Rowling has no deadline to submit her script for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them:
"We have decided as a company that we are going to support J.K. Rowling in her artistic endeavors. She’s been a huge part of our success and (our CEO Kevin Tsujihara) and her really have a great relationship…Every writer at Warner Bros. has a deadline, unless you’ve been involved in a multi-billion-dollar franchise.”
Alas, this gives us mixed feelings, like getting an ear wax flavored Bertie Botts jelly bean!
Pro: Giving J.K. complete creative control is a must! Apparently, she felt very rushed writing The Goblet of Fire, and while we think it's perfection, she thought the book could have turned out better.
Con: This script could take many years to write! By the time the movie comes out, we might feel like we've already served a life sentence in Azkaban!
In the end, J.K. has complete control over the script, which is exactly how we want it to be! She's more of a perfectionist than Hermione!
In the meantime, in the wise words of Dumbledore, it does not do to dwell on dreams, and forget to live, although dreaming about what the movie will be like IS a lot of fun!
All in all, we unbreakable vow that this movie is going to be AHmazing!
