Geisha Movie to be Released Nationwide; CDC Fears Outbreak of Yellow Fever

HOLLYWOOD, California -- (CNN -- Celluloid News Network) -- The film adaptation of the bestselling novel Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden will be in theaters nationwide on December 23.

While the movie has received mixed reviews from cinema critics, it has now received a negative review from an unexpected source: the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

CDC epidemic expert Penny Cillin explained: "We are afraid that the nationwide release of this film may spark an outbreak of yellow fever. Lead actress Zhang Ziyi could be the Typhoid Mary of our time, and we are completely unprepared for such an outbreak."

Miss Zhang could not be reached for comment, as she was reportedly too busy beating off crowds of white male admirers.
