JK Rowling has not seen Harry Potter
Do not fret… it's not the Harry Potter film you're thinking! The Scotsman is reporting that Jo has not seen the 1986 film Troll, which features two characters named Harry Potter. Even more coincidental, the plot involves a magical ring which can turn a troll back to his human form.
The revelation was made newsworthy because a remake is currently in the works, scheduled for a release in 2009. No word yet on whether or not Dan Radcliffe will be cast as Harry Potter.
