Anthony Hancock is to be brought back to life for a series of films about the adult Harry Potter. Harry, now forty something & with a persistent cigarette cough, has found his life falling into dysfunction, paranoia & compulsive gambling since he left the sustaining environment of Hogwarts School. The failure of a final magical attempt to return there maroons him in a terraced house in 1970s central Nottingham with a tiny Tinkerbell-like female companion played by Kylie Minogue. He rarely changes his clothes. In the first film of the series we see him stalked in the local minimart by the ageing female alchemist from a lost early Hilary Mantel novel.
