This is her debut project as a scriptwriter.She turns to this project after her first adult novel 'The Casual Vacancy'.
She says, "As I considered Warners' proposal, an idea took shape that I couldn't dislodge. That is how I ended up pitching my own idea for a film to Warner Bros".She continues,"This film is neither a prequel nor a sequel to the Harry Potter series, but an extension of the wizarding world".The story is to be set 70 years before HP comes underway.
