According to Harry Potter producer David Heyman, Steve Kloves will not be writing the screenplay for Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. Kloves wants to return to directing by adapting The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon.
Writer Michael Goldenberg, who previously wrote Peter Pan and Contact will join David Heyman in penning the new script with final approval by JK Rowling. The movie is slated to begin filming in January 2006 with a spring or fall 2007 release.
