Here’s some interesting casting news from the pre-production offices of Christopher Nolan’s upcoming batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises; crowd-pleaser Anne Hathaway, recently seen baring it all across from Jake Gyllenhaal in the sex comedy Love & Other Drugs, has signed on to take on the role of a revamped Catwoman, alongside Inception‘s Tom Hardy as muscly super villain Bane and the Bat himself, Christian Bale.
In the flick to finish off Nolan’s legendary bat-trilogy, Hathaway will don the black leather that sets every geek’s heart aflutter and hopefully perfect a ‘purrrrr’ that brings dignity back to the character. Especially after the murderous ravaging in 2004’s critically-panned feature Catwoman, which at the hands of French director Pitof, will forever be remembered for securing Halle Berry a Golden Raspberry Award for Worst Actress.
So what do you think; will Hathaway portray a hammed-up flirty feline or will she slink amongst shadows to keep the Dark Knight wishing it were he with nine lives?
We can speculate for now, but it won’t be until July 19, 2012 that we’ll know for sure.
