‘Potter’ conjures new scribe

Goldenberg in, Kloves out on 'Phoenix'

Michael Goldenberg is entering the world of make-believe once again.

Scribe has come onboard to pen the next installment in the Harry Potter pic series, “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix,” for Warner Bros Pictures.

Pic is being produced by David Heyman for a production start of late 2005 or early 2006, with a 2007 summer release skedded.

“HP5” will be the first in the series not to be penned by writer/director Steve Kloves.

Kloves has stepped away to adapt and direct another pic for WB — the previously announced “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time,” based on the bestselling novel by Mark Haddon to be produced by Plan B and Heyman.

Goldenberg previously adapted “Where the Wild Things Are” for Universal and also wrote “Peter Pan” and “Contact.”
