★ More from J.K. Rowling on the horizon! It has been little over two years since J.K. Rowling published The Tales of Beedle the Bard, but fans of the Harry Potter author have been eagerly anticipating her next move in the publishing world, and now news, though minute, has surfaced about it. “I don’t know when you’ll be able to read it. I’ve got several things on the go at once, so it’s hard to know which will be the first that appears in print,’ Jo told BBC News on the BAFTA red carpet. ‘But yeah, I’m writing hard.” The question is, what, exactly, is Rowling working on? Hollywood Crush has come up with a few theories – check them out here. Hollywood Crush.

★ Brittany Robertson selected to star in L.J. Smith’s ‘The Secret Circle’ adaptation Just a few weeks ago we announced that Kevin Williamson, The Vampire Diaries executive producer, was hard at work at creating a pilot script for a planned small screen adaptation of L.J. Smith’s The Secret Circle series. Now, further reports have been released, stating that Brittany Robertson, the star of Life Unexpected and the Avalon High made-for-TV movie based on Meg Cabot’s novel of the same title, has been offered, and accepted, the lead role of Cassie in The CW pilot. “‘Secret Circle’ is based on a series of books by author L.J. Smith about a young woman who moves to a new town and discovers that not only is she a witch and part of a secret coven, but she’s also the key that will unlock a centuries-old battle of good versus evil. It’s from Alloy Entertainment, Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios.” Entertainment Weekly.
