More Batman Casting Rumors

Dark Horizons received the following news from Shepperton Studios. Is it true? Only time will tell…

It’s expected to begin production in Feb 2004 with either Christian Bale, Josh Hartnett or Cillian Murphy from ’28 Days Later’. Murphy seems the most likely to get it as Hartnett doesn’t seem to be interested and Bale is stalling because if he takes on Batman he knows he can kiss goodbye to a future chance at the Bond role. Whilst all this talk is running rampant about the hero, a piece out of left field came today about the villain – ‘Kate’ went to see Russell Crowe’s band ’30 Odd Foot of Grunts’ when they were recently on tour and Crowe apparently mentioned he’s been offered a “damn bad guy role thing that the guy from Memento’s doing”.
