Ever since the lovely and talented Anne Hathaway was announced as Catwoman in the upcoming Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises directed by Christopher Nolan, the Internet has been in a frenzy between those who doubt his choice, and those who are thrilled.
Personally, I believe Hathaway can do it. Firstly, she’s sexy as hell. Secondly, she has IMMENSE range as an actress, and can definitely handle the job put in front of her.
According GeekTyrant, Nolan’s cinematographer Wall Pfister answered a few questions regarding Hathaway’s part in the movie. And it appears that we will INDEED see Catwoman, not just Selina Kyle (Catwoman‘s alter-ego) in the movie.
“Yeah.. She’s phenomenal. This is something she wanted and wanted to show Chris, ‘I’m the one for this job’ and she did an incredible job… and she looked phenomenal in the wardrobe. It’s going to be amazing with her.”
“I’ll get fired and I won’t even get to shoot the picture!” Pfister laughed, “I can’t really [say], but I definitely want to be around next year.”
Pfister discussed a number of various rumors that have been circulating the web lately. He dismissed the idea that any the production would take place in New Orleans and also commented on the recent internet rumor that Robin Williams would be joining the cast in the part of Hugo Strange.
“I haven’t even heard that,” he said, genuinely surprise, “Look, they have to keep a lot of secrets from me anyway… I don’t really know. They can turn around and surprise me, too. When I saw the list of girls that we were going to be screen-testing before they cast Anne, I didn’t know myself who was real and who wasn’t until about two days before the test…”
Are you excited for the movie? And what do you think of Nolan’s casting so far?
