‘Harry Potter’ author JK Rowling’s story to be made into a movie in CanadaFebruary 17th, 2011 - 6:43 pm ICT by ANI
Melbourne, Feb 17 (ANI): ‘Harry Potter’ author JK Rowling’s rags to riches story is to be made into a movie in Canada.
The film based on Rowling’s rise from struggling single mum in Edinburgh to multimillionaire author of the Harry Potter book series is set to begin shooting next month.
Scotland’s The Herald newspaper reported that film producers initially toured Edinburgh in their search for shooting locations, but decided to move production to Canada to save money because they found similar buildings there that could be used as backdrops.
Rowling, 45, has not authorised the television movie, reports News.com.au.
She refused to comment on the film, which has the working title ‘Strange Magic’.
Australian actor Poppy Montgomery, who stars as FBI agent Samantha Spade in the hit US television series Without a Trace, will play Rowling. (ANI)
