Is a 'Harry Potter and the Cursed Child' Movie Already in the Works?


If you've been living under a rock, you might not have noticed that Harry Potter mania is officially back. The Harry Potter and the Cursed Child play and book have been selling out worldwide, so it's not too much of a surprise that a movie may be the next follow-up.

According to the New York Daily News, Warner Bros. has plans to adapt J.K. Rowling's book for the big screen as early as 2020. Its producers are also targeting Daniel Radcliffe to reprise his role as the iconic boy who lived.

There is no confirmation from Warner Bros. about these reports, but Radcliffe did say that he's up for playing the character again. “The circumstances would have to be pretty extraordinary. But then I am sure Harrison Ford said that with Han Solo and look what happened there!" he told the U.K.'s Radio Times in June. "So I am saying, ‘No,’ for now but leaving room to backtrack in the future."

Earlier this month, Scholastic announced the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child script book sold more than 2 million copies in North America in its first two days alone, and was the fastest-selling book in the U.K. since Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
