It is official The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resort ( www.universalorlando.com) will open its doors to the public on June 18, 2010. Based, of course, on JK Rowling’s Harry Potter books and the movies, the attraction invites visitors to explore Hogwarts Castle and its many nooks and crannies, including Dumbledore’s office, Defence Against the Dark Arts classroom (where you get to meet Harry, Ron and Hermione), Gryffindor common room, and the Room of Requirement. Fans will also get to fly with Harry over Hogwarts, get into a Quidditch match and more with the three distinct areas within The Wizarding World of Harry Potter: Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey (the central area and the beginning of the visit); Flight of the Hippogriff; and Dragon Channel. The new Potter attraction is described as a “360-degree theme park experience” that combines “live-action, advanced robotic technology and innovative filmmaking,” for the adventure.

Mattel has also partnered with producer Neal Moritz (the Fast and Furious franchise, I Am Legend, among many others), and are now seeking screenwriters for the project.
Paul W.S. Anderson will direct a new 3D feature film version of the classic character Buck Rogers, which became hugely popular in 1950s, from a script by co-writers Art Marcum and Matt Holloway (Iron Man), per Variety. Paradox Entertainment, which is planning a Conan movie as well, will produce the movie. Paradox together with Incognito Entertainment and Randall Emmett/George Furla Productions acquired the rights to the property from the Dille Family Trust.
