Screenwriter Steve Kloves gained trust of J.K. Rowling with one word
In a new article posted today by MovieLine, J.K. Rowling revealed how apprehensive she was at handing the keyboard over to screenwriter Steve Kloves for the movie adaptation of her magical world.
Rowling recalls how one simple word put her mind at ease and her trust never waivered from that point on. Here is what JK Rowling revealed:
Steve turned to me while food was being ordered and said quietly, “You know who my favorite character is?” I looked at him, red hair included, and thought: You’re going to say Ron. Please, please don’t say Ron – Ron’s so easy to love! And he said: “Hermione.” At which point, under my standoffish, mistrusting exterior, I just melted. Because if he got Hermione, he got the books. He also, to a large extent, got me.
Steve Kloves also revealed in a separate interview in Written By, people are going to be “surprised” with the final film. “It’s pretty amazing.”
