Lee’s Web Site Recants
Oct 29, 2002
Thanks Jade, for letting us know that the official Christopher Lee Web site has said that they have no official confirmation that Lee is slated to play Dumbledore. Back to rumor status. As it says:
Sorry to change the content of this news. Mr Lee has not received official confirmation from Warner Bros and until then, we cannot confirm or comment any further.
Obviously it would be wonderful news and Mr Lee is overwhelmed, but for the time being nothing is certain.
We’ll keep you updated, but this all seems very soon after Harris’ passing – I personally wouldn’t expect an official announcement for a while.
