(Newser) – As JK Rowling makes the rounds publicizing her new book for grown-ups, she offers this tidbit on the Harry Potter books: She might re-issue some or all as "director's cut" versions. Don't expect any plot changes, though. She apparently feels she was too rushed in writing and wants to smooth over some sections. "I had to write on the run and there were times when it was really tough," she tells the BBC. "And I read them, and I think, 'Oh God, maybe I'll go back and do a director's cut', I don't know." For the record, Emma Watson thinks the books are just fine the way they are. See that interview here.
