J.K. Rowling is pleased to announce that she is collaborating with the award-winning theatre producers Sonia Friedman and Colin Callender on a new stage play to be based on the Harry Potter stories.
What was it like to be the boy in the cupboard under the stairs? This brand new play, which will be developed for the UK theatre, will explore the previously untold story of Harry’s early years as an orphan and outcast. Featuring some of our favourite characters from the Harry Potter books, this new work will offer a unique insight into the heart and mind of the now legendary young wizard. A seemingly ordinary boy, but one for whom Destiny has plans…
J.K. Rowling will also be a co-producer on the project, but whilst she will collaborate with a writer on the new play, she will not write the script herself.
J.K. Rowling said:
"Over the years I have received countless approaches about turning Harry Potter into a theatrical production, 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. After a year in gestation it is exciting to see this project moving on to the next phase. I’d like to thank Warner Bros. for their continuing support in this project."
Writers and directors are now being considered, and the project will move into development in 2014.
So I guess that’s happening. *faints*

I HAVE WAITED ALL YEAR TO POST THIS
THE ONLY CHRISTMAS MOVIE THAT MATTERS
For me, this is the most terrifying scene on DW.
Look into Wilfred’s eyes. Pain, fear, shame and despair.
Humans are the scariest things in the universe.
this breaks my heart every single goddamn time.
This episode was hands down the most terrifying in the whole series. Fuck the Weeping Angels, they’ve got nothing on humans.
God and the way his expression instantly hardens when he addresses Wilfred
because he can smile and make it seem not so bad for Donna’s sake, but there’s no bullshitting Wilfred because they both know what’s really coming and there’s no dancing around it. So all there’s left to say is the salute.
I haven’t watched this episode in so long and this guy gets about three minutes of screentime but suddenly I’m SO invested in his character goddammit
So today in Design class the teacher asked if I would demonstrate how to cut a piece of wood at a certain angle and a girl in my class said “Zoe’s great at cutting! You should see her wrist” before I could even react the really quiet girl in my class got out of her seat punched the girl in the face without even saying a word.
