Cher as Nolan's Catwoman?
Another Batman casting rumour for you, this time it's Catwoman. The last rumour we heard had Angelina Jolie wanting to play the role. Now rumour has it Christopher Nolan's favourite, if he goes down that road, is Cher.
Surely this isn't true. Cher?
Since The Dark Knight (Filmstalker review) was released there has been a lot of discussion about the next film in the series. Will Christopher Nolan be back? What villains should be in it? And which villains would transfer best into Nolan's darker version of Batman.
Not so long ago Angelina Jolie threw her hat in the ring and said she'd like to play Catwoman in the next film. Now The Daily Telegraph, through Cinema Blend, say that Nolan's favourite for the role of Catwoman is singer/actress Cher.
Cher is Nolan's first choice to play Catwoman. He wants to her to portray her like a vamp in her twilight years. The new Catwoman will be the absolute opposite of Michelle Pfeiffer and Halle Berry's purring creations.
That was the favourite anonymous studio executive speaking there. They also seem to say that filming would begin early next year, strange considering there is no director and no script.
I can't see this coming true. I'm pretty sure Nolan had said he didn't see a return for Catwoman. Maybe he could be persuaded for the likes of Jolie. But Cher? How would that work? I hope they get Nolan or someone else on board soon, and then maybe we can get some concrete news on the next film. My guess for next rumour, Lindsay Lohan as Batgirl.
