Children of Dune recasting?

The MSN board The Landsraad has a notice (picked up on by AICN) that James Watson, who played Duncan Idaho in the Dune miniseries, is being recast…but I have my doubts as to the authenticity. In a letter claiming to be from Mr. Watson himself, it states that “The new head of the Scifi Channel has decided that he wants an American actor to continue in the role.” As far as I know, Bonnie Hammer is still in charge, and still female. Doesn’t mean it didn’t happen, or she didn’t order it. At least James got more screen time Richard Jordan’s “cameo” appearance in the David Lynch/”Alan Smithee” 1984 production.
