Spoof account @VarietyFilm posted that Joss Whedon had been hired to write and direct a movie adaptation of the hit play, with the original cast to reprise their roles and linking to the supposed full story.
However, it just turned out to be an epic Rickrolling as the link just went to the music video for Rick Astley's huge earworm.
And despite the prospect of a new Harry Potter movie after all these years, fans were absolutely DELIGHTED to have been Rickrolled as they really didn't want Joss to be anywhere near it.
