Harry Potter author J. K. Rowling has written for the Writer’s Guild’s Written by magazine about her collaborative relationship with “Potter” Film screenwriter Steve Kloves for their April/May issue. The full piece, which can be read in its entirety via this link, details the 12-year-long “email correspondence” which resulted in seven adapted screenplays of Ms. Rowling’s book series. Rowling and Kloves began their work together following an early film production meeting in Los Angeles, California when the screenwriter shared his knowledge of the books and favorite character (Hermione) with the author. The three-page article revisits a handful of moments throughout the 12-year correspondence which crafted the film’s scripts, as well as details some of the moments in which Kloves was let in on secrets of the stories early, in order to ensure continuity of the story.
