Harry Potter and the Lawsuit

Harry Potter producers Warner Bros are suing an Indian film company over the title of upcoming film Hari Puttar - A Comedy Of Terrors, according to industry publication The Hollywood Reporter.

Mumbai-based Mirchi Movies will defend the case at Bombay High Court. The film is due to open in India on 12 September.

Hari Puttar is directed by Rajesh Bajaj and Lucky Kohli and stars Zain Khan as young Hari alongside veteran Bollywood actor Jackie Shroff. It tells the story of a 10-year-old boy who moves to England with his parents.

Insiders claim the Indian production has more in common with Home Alone, but Warner Bros remain distinctly unimpressed.

Judge for yourself - here's the website. And here's a trailer on YouTube,
