Michael Moore Won't Be Directing Harry

Various film websites are reporting that documentary
writer/producer/director Michael Moore has been invited to direct the film
version of book VI.
It appears to us that this rumor got started when satirical news site the
Spoof "reported" the "news". Chinese news site Xinhuanet.com apparently
then picked up the story and reported it as fact. It has since spread to
film and news sites too numerous to mention.

We could post a lengthy discussion as to the many reasons this report must
surely be a baseless rumor, but it's pointless in light of the note posted
at the Spoof:

The story as represented above is written as a satire or parody. It is
fictitious.

Thanks to the many TLC readers who (quite disbelievingly) sent us links.
