JK Rowling Is Working On A “Harry Potter” Prequel — For The Stage!

Exciting news, Potterheads! JK Rowling has announced that she has teamed up with British theater producers Sonia Friedman and Colin Callender to create a stage version of “Harry Potter.” The upcoming play will focus on an as-yet-unexplored time in Harry’s life: his early childhood years “as an orphan and outcast” before he received that fateful letter from Hogwarts. “Over the years I have received countless approaches about turning Harry Potter into a theatrical production,” Rowling said in a statement, “but Sonia and Colin’s vision was the only one that really made sense to me, and which had the sensitivity, intensity and intimacy I thought appropriate for bringing Harry’s story to the stage.” Rowling won’t be writing the script, but she will work closely with producers to ensure it matches her vision. I’ll raise my butterbeer to that! [People]

“Love Actually 2″ Has Less Romance, More Wizards And Zombies

Love Actually 2 Trailer
"To me, you are perfect. As long as you're not a zombie."

Can you guys believe it’s been 10 years since “Love Actually” came out? It’s about time this Christmas classic got a sequel, don’t you think? Well, you’re in luck: the whole gang is back together in this hilarious and disturbing parody trailer for “Love Actually 2,” which catches up with the ensemble cast as they’ve whiled away the past decade killing zombies, teaching at Hogwarts, bounty hunting, threatening kidnappers, taking speech classes, and going on unexpected journeys. For the record, I would totally watch this movie if it were real. [YouTube]

Harry Potter And The Chamber of Love Lessons

harry potter love

Merlin’s beard, we’re old! It is the 12th anniversary of the Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone premiere, but Potterdom is as alive today as ever. One of my favorite things (of many) about the Harry Potter book and film series is that it’s not a cheesy romantic story on the outside — hello mystery, adventure, and strong female heroines — but at the heart of it, it is a love story. There are various romantic pairings that slowly develop over the course of the series, and there is, of course, the love of Harry’s mother that steers the entire plot. So using GIFs and quotes from the movies and books, I’m sharing some of the best love lessons J.K.’s series has taught us about the magic of love. Read all 27 love lessons on Tres Sugar…

Warner Bros. Announces Another Harry Potter Movie (Sort Of)

Thanks to Hollywood’s crippling inability to let any wildly profitable franchise end gracefully (see: “Pirates of the Caribbean 5″), Warner Bros. and J.K. Rowling have teamed up once again for another movie to take place in the Harry Potter universe.

The movie will be based on the Hogwarts textbook “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”, which Rowling published IRL in 2001. The film will follow the exploits of author Newt Scamander; Rowling herself is set to write the screenplay. A Warner Bros. statement announcing the film threatens the film “is planned as the first picture in a new film series.” Read more at Celebuzz…

Hey! That's Ron Weasley's Bum!

Legendary NYC punk venue CBGB shuttered in 2006 after 36 years of business, but its legacy lives on — in stories, in memories, in music, and in the form of Ron Weasley’s bare exposed ass. That’s right: Rupert Grint plays Cheetah Chrome, one fifth of the first-wave punk band the Dead Boys, in the upcoming “CBGB” film, which hits theaters October 11. The general consensus around the Frisky office at the moment is that Rupert is one of the few gingers we are not hot for, but I kind of disagree. I always had a thing for Ron, you know? If you, like me, have been waiting years to get a glimpse of the old Weasley backside, now’s your chance! [MTV]
