JK Rowling to work on Harry Potter stage play

LONDON — Harry Potter is coming to the stage.

J.K. Rowling says she is working on a play about the boy wizard's life before he attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Rowling said in a statement today that the play will "explore the previously untold story of Harry's early years as an orphan and outcast. "

Rowling will be a co-producer on the show, along with veteran theater producers Sonia Friedman and Colin Callender. The statement said Rowling will collaborate with a writer but will not write the script herself.

Writer and director have yet to be chosen. No opening date has been set for the show.

Rowling's Harry Potter novels have sold more than 450 million copies around the world and were adapted into eight Warner Bros. feature films.
