SunstarTV Bureau: Here comes good news for all the Potterheads! After 10 year the world of Harry Potter might be streaming soon, with a live-action series in early development.
Several sources have shared that HBO Max executives are in talks with potential writers and looking at possible plotline ideas to recreate Potter’s world in OTT space.
Sources indicate that ideas are being discussed ‘as part of the early-stage exploratory meetings’. This news has left the Potterheads across the globe gleaming with joy.
Although executives have been holding meetings to zero in on the writer or writers, as well as pitch, at the moment no one is attached to the project, according to hollywoodreporter.com.
Since Warner Bros, along with creator JK Rowling, has rights to the property, the streamer would most probably be backed by WarnerMedia.
However, while the buzz is strong, the streamer is officially in denial mode. They refuted the reports in their statement.
But in a statement, HBO Max and Warner Bros said, “There is no Harry Potter series in development at the studio or on the streaming platform.”
