The "Black Hawk Down" star, 30, is seeking damages and an apology from the Daily Mirror, for allegations that were "defamatory and unsubstantiated" and a "complete fabrication," his lawyer said in a statement.
The Mail reported that library workers witnessed the alleged incident and that the footage was floating around.
Hartnett is especially upset because the story was picked up by news outlets all around the world, including here at PopEater (See: Desperately Seeking a Hartnett Sex Tape).
At the time the story broke, an adult video company announced they were offering $500,000 for the rights to the alleged tape.
Red Light District CEO David Joseph said he would "encourage the owners of the tape to bring it to us," and that "Josh shouldn't be embarrassed. As we've seen with Paris Hilton, these tapes can make a career not hurt it."
