Earlier we told you about a story from Ain’t It Cool News on French director Jean-Pierre Jeunet(Amelie) being approached by Warner Brothers to direct the film version of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. Today Variety has this story where Jeunet does confirm the interest from Warner Brothers, but is still undecided about his involvement in the project.

The helmer also is mulling what film project to tackle next. Warners has been sounding him out about the next “Harry Potter” pic, Jeunet said, but it is hard to think clearly with “A Very Long Engagement” still in his system. “Making a film is like a love affair,” said the helmer. “I’m not capable of moving straight on from one to the next.”
