French newspaper Le Parisien reports that director Jean-Pierre Jeunet (Amelie) has decided not to take on Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.
When asked what future projects he had, he replied “Warner offered me Harry Potter five but I had to decide in two weeks. I’ve told them ‘No, thanks’.”

We’ll confirm when we can, and much thanks to both Alexandra and Basile for the translation.
