Benjamin Bratt will play Halle Berry’s love interest in Catwoman, the Warner Bros. adaptation of the DC Comics character. The film begins shooting September 29 with French director Pitof at the helm.
The movie, set in Lake City, is the story of Patience Price (Berry), a veterinary scientist who takes on the identity of Catwoman in her fight against the evil plots of the cosmetics company for which she works. The firm is a front for the criminal exploits of the husband and wife team that run it.
Bratt will play Detective Tom Lone, who falls in love with Price. Also on board are Sharon Stone as Laurel, the villainous cosmetics magnate, and French actor Lambert Wilson (“The Matrix Reloaded”) as Georges, her evil husband.
Bratt most recently starred in last year’s “Abandon.” Other credits include “Pinero,” “Traffic” and “Miss Congeniality.” He also did a four-year stint on the TV series “Law & Order.”
