Hot news on the Batman 3 flick. Christopher Nolan is looking for the female lead:
Warner Bros’ new “Batman” film has switched to a higher gear (so much so the production’s leaving fire trails), concurrently hitting the gas, with an insider telling Moviehole that a ”revolving door will be in operation for the better part of this week” as director Christopher Nolan and producers meet with their prospective female lead.
Nolan began meeting with actors a few weeks back, one of whom was Tom Hardy who was recently reported to be playing an unspecified role in the big-budget blockbuster.
The hunt is now on for the film’s Bat babe.
Several young (“Late 20′s, early 30′s”) ladies are meeting with the Caped Crusader’s resuscitator this week to talk about the new film. Interestingly enough, quite a few of the ladies don’t actually know what role they’re being asked to read for/meet Nolan about (yep, security is tighter on this thing than the department store Jonathan Switcher worked at in “Mannequin” – Okay, maybe a bit tighter than that) they’ve just accepted an offer to “meet” with the filmmaker. Presumably, they’ll leave the meeting knowing quite a bit more.
I’ve the names of a couple of the young ladies meeting with Nolan, but I’ve checked in with them and they’ve kindly asked me not to name them – at least until they’re convinced they haven’t got the job (fair enough, don’t want to jinx it for anyone).
What I can say is that Nolan is open to casting a fresh face as the female lead; he’s not necessarily bringing in the big guns.
My question is, which lovely Bat-universe lady will it be?
