The online community seemed to hold its collective breath this week as J.K. Rowling hinted at what seemed to be the return of Harry Potter with a few tweets, including an anagram.
Very busy at the moment working on a novel, tweaking a screenplay and being involved in @lumos campaigns. Back when I’ve finished something!

While the anagram and tweets weren’t in reference to the Chosen One, they pointed to the screenplay about Newt Scamander, the main character in a coming film trilogy inspired by her book “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.” Rowling is partnering with Warner Bros. Studios for the project, and the first film’s release will be in 2016.
With this week’s job opening, you might be able to promote that film.
Warner Bros. Entertainment is seeking a director of promotions to manage movie hype as well as film partnerships in more than 60 markets. The director will work with both small and large films alongside the executive director and will work with several internal departments on pitches and events.
Candidates should have at least five years experience in marketing and promoting, and international experience is preferred.
Candidates will be managing several products and vendor projects, so they should be able to travel, communicate effectively with both actors and producers, and have an understanding of product placement as well as promotional tactics.
While there is no guarantee you’ll get to promote “Fantastic Beasts,” Warner Bros. is known for producing such films as “East of Eden,” “Dirty Harry,” and “A Clockwork Orange,” and will be producing “Magic Mike XXL,” “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” and “The Lego Movie 2” in the next few years.
Interested candidates can apply here.
If you need to be closer to Hogwarts, Universal Orlando Resort is looking for a senior representative in their marketing department.
