(CNN) -- Harry Potter is coming to the stage.
According to a statement on author JK Rowling's official website, a stage play is in the works based on the popular book series.
The play will tell the story of Harry's early life living with his aunt and uncle before heading to the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
Rowling says she will co-produce the play and collaborate with a writer but won't write the script herself.
The project is scheduled to head into development for UK theater next year.
