LOTR/Harry Potter Spoof coming soon.

MGM Making Henry Bates and the Sorcerer's Balls Source: Variety Friday, November 14, 2003

MGM has made bought the rights to Henry Bates and the Sorcerer's Balls - a spoof of the "Harry Potter" and "Lord of the Rings" franchises. The studio is looking to conjure up a fantasy parody in the vein of the "Scary Movie" horror-spoof franchise. The film was scripted by David Morgasen, James R. Stein and Timothy Stack.

"Our good wizard is Gandolfini, who goes against the evil wizard Enron," Morgasen told Variety. "The quest involves Henry Bates, the rightful king of the land of Middlefinger."

MGM bought the script days ago and has already engaged the writers for a two-week polish, indicating the studio plans to move quickly.

This could be quite funny.

However, I think it's far more likely that it'll be the most godawful piece of crap ever to grace the silver screen

You can just see it coming a mile off can't you?

Gandolfini: Greetings, MASTER BATES
Sorry, the title made me laugh...however, dated references to Enron don't look encouraging...

This sounds lame. Scary Movie spoofs movies that are popular/sucessful but eventually lose their appeal and become more entertaining to poke fun at. Lord of The Rings is practically legendary. Both Lord of The Rings and Harry Potter may be movies but were novels first and are held by fans differently than a box office popcorn flick. Also what do Lord of The Rings and Harry Potter have to do with one another?
