John Tiffany is in "early talks" to helm Harry Potter play

Once theatre director John Tiffany is in talks to direct a play based on Harry Potter's early years.

The Tony Award winner is said to be in the ''early stages'' of negotiations with the author of the book franchise, J.K Rowling.

Writer Jack Thorne and producers Sonia Friedman and Colin Callender are also linked with the production, according to the Daily Mail.

A Warner Bros representative is quoted as saying: "We will see what we have when it's written, and proceed from there. Remember: it's a play, not a musical; so we may not require a great big theatre."

It was previously reported that while J.K Rowling won't be writing the screenplay, she will be contributing to the overall production.
