This is so true. Writing an story is totally different than writing a screenplay. And it is the exact reason why authors do not script adaptations. She will need help and I hope she is aware of it.However, as we know completely, writing books is way different than writing films. Jo will be inexperienced in writing a screenplay, and I bet she will want all the tips she can get. She knows the story she wants to tell, she knows what makes it in the film (from her mind) and what doesn't--all the things that purists would whine about the Potter films, that won't be the case here--it's coming right from her. The thing is, she should get all the help she can get as to how to write it. Like others have said, I'm sure it will be great. But just because it's the Potter writer doesn't mean it's going to be the best script ever.
