JK Rowling biopic creates hype in Hollywood
A screenplay on Harry Potter creator JK Rowling, written by former entertainment journalist at Bustle Anna Klassen, is generating significant hype in Hollywood. The script has already featured on some of the most powerful probable screenplay production lists of Hollywood, including the 2017 Black List and 2017 Hit List. "This script is a story of one woman overcoming unthinkable odds - poverty, domestic abuse, depression - to create something born, miraculously, out of love," Klassen told ComicBook.com in a recent interview. "It's a story of redemption and inspiration. It's a story we desperately need in 2017," she said. The prospect of the film is already creating excitement among the Harry Potter fan community, who will get the opportunity to learn a little about the author behind the iconic series of novels which sparked movies, theme park attractions, and more. The script earned 20 votes on the Black List, earning a sixth place finish, and ranked 17th on the Hit List, in a tie with Pete Barry's “Marian.” The synopsis for the film reads: "The true story of 25-year-old Joanne Rowling, as she weathers first loves, unexpected pregnancies, lost jobs, and depression on her journey to create Harry Potter." Klassen, a graduate from the University of Oregon, took to Twitter to celebrate her placement on the well-respected lists. "I can't stop screaming," she wrote. "I'm on the 2017 Black List!" "When Lightning Strikes" is the first of Klassen's scripts to garner such critical success, though the former entertainment journalist recently won a ScreenCraft contest for her work titled “14 Words.” "When Lightning Strikes" is still in the earliest stages of production but, after the impressive rankings and nods from the Tracking Board, it appears to only be a matter of time until Klassen can bring the story of Joanne Rowling to the silverscreen.
