News on J.K. Rowing

I heard news the other day that Rowling is going to continue on with her story of wizards and witches in a new project.  This one will reportedly take place seventy years before Harry Potter and will focus on a character she says she's always loved, Newt Scamander.  According to examiner (dot) com, Rowling is going to be writing her first screenplay.  (that's right, a screenplay and not a book) about this character who grew up to write a textbook called "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them."

Warner Bros says this might just be the first of another series of films featuring the magical world.  It doesn't sound like it's going to take place at Hogwarts, though.  Rowling says the magical laws and such will be the same and will be familiar to readers of the series.

What do you think about this?

Are you eager for another film about Rowling's world or are you sick of them?
