More Hogwarts Grads

Yesterday, we reported on the next moves by various Harry Potter alums. In addition, Chris Columbus, director of the first two Harry Potter movies, is turning his eyes to creating source material. Entertainment Weekly interviewed him recently, after he signed a deal with HarperCollins to write House of Secrets, a middle-grade fantasy trilogy, with co-author Ned Vizzini (who wrote It’s Kind of a Funny Story, which became a movie starring Zach Galifianakis). No release date has been set.

Why buy the rights to someone else’s books when you can write your own?
