Melbourne (ANI): 'Harry Potter" author JK Rowling's rags to riches
story is to be made into a movie in Canada. The film based on
Rowling's rise from struggling single mum in Edinburgh to
multimillionaire author of the Harry Potter book series is set to
begin shooting next month.
Scotland's The Herald newspaper reported that film producers
initially toured Edinburgh in their search for shooting locations,
but decided to move production to Canada to save money because they
found similar buildings there that could be used as backdrops.
Rowling, 45, has not authorised the television movie, reports
News.com.au. She refused to comment on the film, which has the
working title 'Strange Magic". Australian actor Poppy Montgomery,
who stars as FBI agent Samantha Spade in the hit US television
series Without a Trace, will play Rowling.
