'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them' is a companion book to the Potter series and features explorer Newt Scamander, who is also mentioned in the Potter books as the author of a wizard school textbook.
Rowling is writing her first ever screenplay for the film and although details of the plot have so far remained under wraps, the project - which is expected to be the first instalment in a new trilogy - is to be set in 1920s New York and will feature American and British wizards.
No director or cast announcements have been made as of yet.
