JK Rowling has sparked speculation that Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is heading to the big screen after posting a cryptic tweet.

The 54-year-old author hinted that the stage play follow up to her hugely successful franchise is continuing, with further parts to arrive.

Returning to Twitter after a six-month break, Rowling shared a stylised image of villain Lord Voldemort's infamous Dark Mark and added the hashtag #CursedChild.

She captioned the post: "Sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places."

Harry Potter And The Cursed Child is a stage play and award-winning follow-up to the original series of seven books, and some fans are hoping that a movie is in the pipeline.

Pottermore, dashed fans hopes about a film by tweeting: "There is something exciting coming later on from @CursedChildNYC, but it's not a movie…"

Sarah Jessica Parker kicked off the Times Square takeover of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, announcing that the stage show will continue with new chapters.

"Welcome back to Hogwarts," the teaser wrote, with a yellow background and wizard at the ready.

Harry Potter And The Cursed Child premiered in London's West End in July 2016 and proved to be a huge success. 

The play's story picks up 19 years after the events of Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows, and features Harry Potter as a senior figure at the Ministry of Magic while his son Albus Severus Potter is set to start at Hogwarts.

We'd all have absolutely lost the run of ourselves if Daniel Radcliffe had signed our Harry Potter books when we were kids (we'd still die if it happened today, to be honest).

A book believed to contain the actor's first ever autograph on a Harry Potter book has just been sold for €2,900, and one lucky person now has a slice of cultural history.

Radcliffe was just 11-years-old when he allegedly signed the hardback during filming of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone in North Yorkshire in 2000.

The book's owner was an extra in the film, and was the first person to request his signature. Emma Watson and Rupert Grint also signed the book, which was auctioned by Teesside-based Vectis.

Vectis claim the book's owner asked the actor to sign the now-iconic novel as he sat in a marquee on set at Goathland on the first day of filming. The North Yorkshire village appears in the film as Hogsmeade.

He wrote on Verity Collins' novel: "To Verity, best wishes Daniel Radcliffe."

The actor who portrayed Hagrid in the franchise, Robbie Coltrane, also wrote his autograph on the novel while the film's director, Chris Columbus, wrote "Believe in magic".

The novel's owner, Verity Collins, was having chemotherapy to treat leukaemia. Collins' mother, Valerie Rudd, is selling the book on her behalf. 

Rudd, who is selling the book on Verity's behalf, said: "She loved her time there. We would have even paid for her to be an extra. She was a big fan of the books.

“When Verity was 13 she was spending lots of time in the hospital and she’d read the books while she was there. I started reading the first one in the hospital with her."

Her mother continued explaining the story of Verity's part in the movie;

"So when we found out they were advertising for extras for the film we applied straight away, and even though she was having her treatment she was allowed to do it.

“She was about 15 at the time and he would have been about 11. She was with a group of extras, saw Daniel Radcliffe sitting by himself and felt sorry for him so she went and talked to him," Rudd continued.

The book, which has 13 signatures, was the first item Radcliffe had ever been asked to sign; "He said it was the first time anyone had asked him for an autograph."

Verity also received a special invitation from director Chris Columbus to visit the Warner Bros Studio, before it was open to public.

Her mum said: “She had the most marvellous time.

“Although she was going through her treatment, it was just such a wonderful time for her to be an extra in her favourite book and then to be invited down to see the studio."

33-year-old Verity now lives in Somerset, and was given the all-clear from the illness. She opened her own homemade jewellery business and is hoping the book's sale will allow her to move South.

Kathy Taylor, a representative from Vectis, said the book had smashed its "conservative" €500 estimate; "It's such a lovely story. It's always difficult to gauge the price when something is unique."

"The seller, who now lives in the south, has great memories of her time on the film and the way the cast treated her during a difficult time while she was ill but her mum said recently it had been sitting in a drawer," she added.

"It became apparent when we promoted the sale on social media it was likely to have been signed on the first day of filming on what was the first Harry Potter film, with actor Chris Rankin, who played Percy Weasley, confirming he had signed the book as well."

Photos of Verity wearing a Hogwarts uniform, cast documents and her invitation to Warner Bros Studios to tour the sets from the film were also sold.

The buyer will also pay a 25 percent commission on the €2,900, meaning the total earned from the sale is €3,628. Not bad, not bad at all.

We probably would have kept all of these incredible memorabilia, but each to their own.

When it comes to dating, finding someone with similar interests to you can often be hugely important. Especially when those interests include magical worlds, fantastic creatures and beasts, and cruel deaths.

Game of Thrones fans and Harry Potter lovers are often pretty…intense…when it comes to their appreciation of the world-famous novels and franchises. It makes sense that they'd have a lot in common.

A study has taken place at the University of Oklahoma, where researchers analysed over 400 readers (male and female) and measured their exposure to various fiction genres, and the results are vital for your fantasy-fuelled love lives.

The attitudes of the participants towards gender roles and sexual behaviour were also studied, and we are loving this form of science. 

The readers were tested on their exposure to seven different genres- classics, contemporary literary fiction, romance, fantasy, science fiction, thriller, and horror. They were also asked for their views on a series of toxic beliefs about relationships.

These beliefs included quips such as: "disagreement is destructive", "mind-reading is expected", "romantic partners cannot change", "the sexes are different" and "the expectation of sexual perfection".

The respondents were told to explain to which degree they agreed or disagreed with the alternating statements. All in the name of love.

Image: YouTube

The study is called. 'What you read and what you believe: Genre exposure and beliefs about relationships' and was published in the Psychology of Aesthetics, Creativity, and the Arts journal.

The results found that people who had the most exposure to fantasy genres and sci-fi had the healthiest beliefs about how loving relationships should function.

We bet Dumbledore gave some decent wisdom about Tinder swiping.

Interestingly, readers who enjoyed fantasy and science fiction novels were "less likely to support the belief that disagreement is destructive". Fighting can be a healthy way to air grievances, even if it's with a wand or a sword…

Fans of the fantasy genre were also less likely to hold "the belief that partners cannot change, the belief that sexes are different, and the belief that mind-reading is expected in relationships". 

Stephanie C. Stern led the research team at the University of Oklahoma, and wrote of their findings; "Individuals who scored higher for exposure to science fiction and fantasy were less likely to endorse four unrealistic relationship beliefs."

Even Jon Snow realised that having a fling with your aunt is a little too unorthodox for him, but Cersei and Jaime endorse the incest vibe.

Ron and Hermione bickered their way through the HP franchise, but made peace in the end with a big sloppy kiss after destroying a Horcrux. Seems like a good way to find love?

Many of us who grew up with the entire Harry Potter franchise remember waiting in those incredibly long queues for the latest book to be released, eagerly sprinted to the cinema for the flicks and desperately trying to dodge spoilers about character plots.

We also know that once it gets rebooted, we're officially OLD. Daniel Radcliffe will always be our Harry, Emma Watson our Hermione, and Rupert Grint our ginger nut Ron. 

The actor who played the title role has now confirmed his thoughts that the hugely popular franchise will be rebooted, and we're totally in denial. Please don't do this to us.

Radcliffe spoke to IGN about playing the boy wizard in the formative film series, sharing his affirmation that "some other version" of the movies will be created in the future.

"I’m sure there will be some other version of it. I know I’m not the last Harry Potter I’m gonna see in my lifetime – we’ve already got a few more in stage play Cursed Child."

The Fantastic Beasts franchise has kept the wizarding world alive (and is allegedly getting five films), as well as Pottermore and Harry Potter World. Radcliffe didn't rule out the possibility of a Harry Potter TV spin-off.

The actor recently revealed that the spin-off would be intriguing especially if it featured the Marauders- the name given to the group of friends featuring Harry's papa James Potter, Remus Lupin, Peter Pettigrew and Sirius Black.

The Marauders gang aren't alive before the final book or movie, the movie would presumably be a prequel. "I feel like there are other stories from that world that you could absolutely turn into a TV series, 100 percent," Daniel told TV Guide.

"A series with the older generation Marauders, that could be very cool." Amen, Daniel, Amen.

“To a certain extent with things like the play and Fantastic Beasts, I think people are still interested in talking to me about it, but nothing’s been happening in that area,” he told E! News in May of last year.

“At the moment, I’m very much enjoying playing lots of different stuff.” In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter he wouldn’t mind reprising his role.

“I’m never going to close that door, but I think I’ll be happy enough and secure enough to let someone else play it,” he said at the time.

Radcliffe's latest role sees him take on the part of a low-level angel in Miracle Workers who must convince God to let humans survive.

Rupert Grint has spoken about his net worth, and it's fair to say we're more than a bit jealous.

The former Ron Weasley was interviewed by The Radio Timesand his funds happened to come up in the conversation.

Naturally, everyone has something to say about it, seeing as his worth in 2016 was estimated to be a whopping €50 million, less than half of Daniel Radcliffe's estimated worth.

He told the publication that he tries not to pay much attention to his financial needs, but says he is "comfortable". Well for some isn't it?

Figures seem to go way over his head, based on these quotes;

"I actually don't know how much I have. I couldn't even really guess."

"It doesn't really motivate me too much. It makes you comfortable, that's the good thing about it, I think. I'm glad it's there but I'm not really that focused on it."

We'd be running around Brown Thomas spending an absolute fortune on nonsensical items which we totally don't need… but each to their own, I guess?

The actor has taken on roles since Harry Potter wrapped up in 2011, starring in Sick Note on Sky One, and the Snatch reboot.

He will also star in The BBC production of Agatha Christie's The ABC Murders alongside John Malkovich as Hercule Poirot.

Mr Weasley's down-to-earth spending habits appear to parallel with Harry and Hermione's.

Daniel Radcliffe told the Belfast Telegraph back in 2016 that he pretty much leaves his $100 million fortune alone.

"I'm very grateful for it, because having money means you don't have to worry about it, which is a very lovely freedom to have. It also gives me immense freedom, career-wise," he said.

Grint also spoke about his struggle with the Harry Potter phenomenon's fame; "Sometimes you just want to go to B&Q." Do you, though? It's fairly grim.

The first thing he did in 2011 after hanging up his cloak and wand was get his tonsils removed;

"It was too much recovery time and there was the fear that it would change my voice."

Well Rupert, no one can say that you're not a normal lad. Too normal, in fact.

Since Harry Potter and the Cursed Child debuted, nobody can stop talking about it.

From the reveal of new characters, to the storyline and surprises, JK Rowling has certainly taken us on a ride.

But last night, Ron Weasley met Ron Weasley… and it was magic.

Yep, Rupert Grint met the man playing his older self, Paul Thornley and the pictures that came from the night are brilliant:

Rupert Grint and Matthew Lewis are probably two of our all-time fave Harry Potter stars – and we kinda love them even more after hearing about the big prank Rupert has been playing on Matthew.

Matthew (or Neville Longbottom, as we like to still call him) revealed on Twitter last month that his former co-star had been putting food on his tab at his favourite restaurant for a number of months. Cheeky.

And when he was on This Morning today, he was asked to explain the whole incident:

"I saw Rupert for the first time in a few years and we were in Orlando and he told me he had been going to this restaurant, and I said: 'That's one of my favourite restaurants', and he's like, 'I know', and I said, 'How would you know that?' and he said, 'That's because I've been putting all my food on your tab for several months!' .. It could have gone on forever – I would never have known!"

Ah, how we wish Ron and Neville were still up to no good… Those were the days.

If you're a Harry Potter fan (who isn't), then you'll really wish you were at the Universal Orlando Resort right now.

The theme park hosted its third annual Harry Potter weekend celebration, and some of our favourite characters decided to pop by and surprise fans.

And what more could you ask for other than Ron and Ginny Weasley together.

Feeling nostalgic? We're loving this pic.

The actress, Bonnie Wright, shared a snap of the two ginger wizards and captioned it, "Family time."

Earlier in the weekend the HP alum also joined Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom), Katie Leung (Cho Chang) and Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood) for a panel that showed their favourite memories from the movies.

Ah, to be a kid and binge watch Harry Potter again.

Well, the years have gone by fast!

Harry Potter , Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley are all coming back for the next instalment of Harry Potter mania – the new screenplay in London's West End.

But they look quite a bit different from their movie counterparts – let's just say Ron has a receding hairline and they're all a tad bit older than we imagined. 

Yep, Harry will be played by 36-year-old Jamie Parker and Paul Thornley has been honoured the part of Ron Weasley. 

In the play, Ron is married to Hermione, who is played by 45-year-old Noma Dumezweni.

The new dynamic trio will star in Harry Potter and The Cursed Child, which has already sold more than a quarter of a million tickets, despite not debuting until May 2016. 

The play is in hot demand, with our beloved J.K. Rowling devising the story, John Tiffany directing the cast and Sonia Friedman producing the play.

Sonia said that while the show won't be a high-tech production, they will have special effects experts on hand – as well as an illusionist. "There will be magic," she promised.
