Various media and websites have been claiming that actress Naomi Watts has been cast as Narcissa Malfoy in the upcoming film of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. TLC has confirmed these reports are FALSE, as are similar rumors claiming that actors Joseph Fiennes and Stuart Townsend have also been cast in the sixth Harry Potter movie. While we are still awaiting official casting announcements, the Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince movie pre-production does continue, as they are set to begin filming in September, with a release date set for November, 2008.
