According to my friend Clint over at MOVIEHOLE.COM
, Chris Nolan (and Iím sure producers Emma Thomas and Charles Roven) has started meeting with their prospective female lead. Allegedly, Nolan and co. are looking for someone in their late 20s to early 30s and they may not necessarily be a ďname actress.Ē The siteís sources don't know what the role is (even the actresses don't know specifics of the role), but speculation has it that itís Selina Kyle, AKA Catwoman. Clint also claims to know several of the actresses who have met/will meet with Nolan, but declined naming them out of respect for those folks.
BOF has heard for quite some time that Selina/Catwoman might be in B3 (you can here our podcast on the topic HERE). Admittedly, Iíve lobbied quite a bit for the inclusion of the character in this film. However, that has nothing to do with what BOF has reported previously in regards to Catwoman possibly being in B3. With that said, oneís gotta think that the odds are fairly good that Catwoman/Selina will be included in B3.
Stay tuned to BOF for more on this story. Iím expecting an official announcement SOON. (Thanks to "Dave" for the heads up!)
