Harry Potter lives! Sort of!

In an unexpected piece of movie news, J.K. Rowling has announced that she'll make her screenwriting debut by penning a series of films based on the fictional Hogwarts textbook "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them."

In a Facebook post, the author explained how she's "protective" of textbook scribe Newt Scamander and told Warner Bros. that she'd like a crack at turning his work into a movie.

"An idea took shape that I couldn’t dislodge. That is how I ended up pitching my own idea for a film to Warner Bros.," Rowling explained, adding of the project:

Some pro-choice groups are reportedly not happy about a new set of subway advertisements by pro-life groups that they say are misleading to teens.

Several pro-choice advocates are speaking out against the New York City transportation ads from EMC Frontline Pregnancy Centers, a pro-life group.

The ads are simple and offer free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds and counseling, but it’s what they don’t say that is causing some issues and controversy.

Take a look below to see what the issue is:

Critics say the ads are misleading to young women because there is no direct access to health care provided, while opinions are presented as fact.

Andrea Miller, Executive Director of NARAL, told PIX11 that “Regardless of your views on this issue ... there should be truth in advertising here.”

Marianne Keith, 52, went to the hospital with severe abdominal pain earlier this year, and her physician recommended she have a transvaginal ultrasound.

What ensued, Keith says, was nothing she could've predicted - an hour of brutal physical abuse that left her with internal injuries and recurring nightmares.

"It felt like I was being raped," she said in an interview.

"Like somebody was intentionally hurting me."

Probe

Keith has therefore sued the Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville, Ill., where she underwent the procedure, for medical battery.

She claims in the lawsuit that the technician "repeatedly jammed the probe in to various internal portions of [her] vagina, including her cervix," for an hour.

It's a bird... it's a plane... it's a man with a self-image problem.

Meet Herbert Chavez. This 36-year old from Calamba City in the Philippines could give the Human Barbie a run for her troubled money, having undergone 19 surgeries in 16 years to resemble Superman as closely as possible.

As detailed in the following report, these procedures have cost Chavez nearly $7,000 and have included nose jobs, lip liposuction, skin whitening, jaw realignment and pectoral implants.

This devotee also holds Guinness World Record for largest collection of Superman memorabilia, a far safer hobby that has thus far resulted in nearly 5,000 Man of Steel-related items.

A 12-year-old Washington State boy who allegedly robbed a barista coffee stand last week and a store the week before at gunpoint has been arrested.

He has been charged with two counts of first-degree robbery.

Cops say a surveillance video helped them identify one 12-year-old, who is accused of using a gun to hold up a convenience store and coffee stand.

The child brandished a gun at the barista and demanded money, according to Everett, Wash., police, after he had ordered a beverage from the stand.

The barista pointed to her tip jar, which the boy emptied into his backpack, before riding away with his drink in one hand and his weapon in the other.

Give Hornet Signs credit.

The Texas company came under fire this month for promoting its sign business by attaching a decal to the back of a truck... a decal of a woman tied up and seemingly abducted.

Following extreme backlash against the PR stunt, the company has made a public showing of its retraction: as detailed in the following video, Hornet Signs removed the sticker from the back of its vehicle and burned it on camera.

Owner Brad Kolb also says his company has donated $2,500 to the Advocacy Center for Crime Victims and Children in Waco.

You've gotta appreciate the swift and decisive action taken as an apology by Kolb in this case - and you've gotta wonder: When will Miley Cyrus do the same for unleashing the act of Twerking upon society?

We don't know her real name, but we're inspired by her story.

On Saturday, a Reddit user named "michzoozoo" posted a photo of herself on her wedding day, kissing her husband on the lips in front of friends and family members.

But something made this picture and this moment unlike similar ones that take place countless times per year across the globe: the bride was in a wheelchair.

As explained in the above video, the young woman shattered her hip in a horse-riding accident just months prior to her Big Day.

Video of police swarming George Zimmerman after he got into an allegedly violent altercation with his wife this week has been released, and it's insane.

Authorities arrived on the scene, ordered him to get down on his knees before handcuffing and detaining him in what looked like a scene out of Cops.

Lake Mary, Fla., police came to a stop about 50 yards away from Zimmerman's car and parked outside the home he shared with his estranged wife.

Police ordered George to get out of his vehicle, turn around, and get on his knees. He complied and was immediately handcuffed and taken into custody.

According to the 911 call placed by Shellie Zimmerman (below) George threatened her and her father inside their home, gesturing toward his handgun.

We suppose this is better than calling 911 because McDonald's messed up your order. Or because you need a pen.

But not by much.

Alex Billington, a movie critic for the website Firstshowing.net, called the authorities from inside a theater at the Toronto Film Festival this week because a fellow attendee was pointing his cell phone at the screen for over 10 minutes.

"I thought I might be witnessing an act of piracy ... and wished to report it to the proper authorities," Billington told BuzzFeed. "The call made was to report an act of piracy in progress, a major crime that many signs around TIFF remind people is a punishable offense.

"I simply requested that an officer confront and confirm that he was not pirating."
