My lesbo-senses are tingling…Michelle Pfeiffer speaks!
While some of you may be wondering what the hell I’m talking about, let’s just clarify that I have a hard core girly crush on Michelle Pfeiffer, she had me at “Meooow” Anyways back to the news at hand, Michelle Pfeiffer, while being interviewed by Empire Magazine, discussed highlights from her role as Tim Burton’s iconic Catwoman.
I was halfway through the script when I said yes. Someone else was cast in the part and I remember being absolutely devastated and calling my agent and saying, ‘How have I not had a meeting about this? Why have I not heard about it?’ It was one of those things where Tim had someone in mind and went directly to them. So I was really bummed, but it was okay. When she [Annette Bening] fell out of it I was just leaving the country and got a call to say Tim wanted to meet me. So I went and he gave me the script and I got halfway through and said yes. But you know, honestly, I would have done it anyway, even without reading the script. But I was very happy that she was actually very well written.”
Now of course being the Queen of All Pussycat’s, Michelle Pfeiffer has claim to express her opinions on Christopher Nolan’s rendition of the character. She had this to say about Anne Hathaway’s rendition of Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises:
“Oh, I think she’s great. I’m actually very much looking forward to seeing her in the role. I’m a big fan of hers and I think she has everything you need for that role. She has the humour, she can go to dark places, she’s obviously very talented. I think she’s going to be really good.”
Sooo for all those like me who were thinking it,would she have played Catwoman for Christopher Nolan if given the chance? She said, “Oh sure. I definitely would have done it.” Catwoman is a dark and sensual character, and so far it seems that Anne Hathaway is getting thumbs up all around for her upcoming role. If you can’t tell I’m excited you are sillier than coconut milk trying to be orange juice. The Dark Knight Rises is set to release July 20th, 2012.
Batman : The Dark Knigh Rises is pushing pretty hard on the PR leaks. This is no mistake, they want to build up the hype for the last movie of the Nolan Batman series. So, let’s get started with the character that has been getting the most buzz recently, Catwoman.
After an interestingly confrontational interview with MTV on the negative/positive feedback from the outfit reveal, a source gives the Daily Mail a positive appeal to fans that this new Catwoman’s will be the sexiest we’ve ever seen. Here an excerpt of their report:
“…Meanwhile, Anne, who changed into a pale yellow dress for the film’s[One Day] after-party, is taking the transformation into Catwoman pretty seriously. The actress, who follows both Halle Berry and Michelle Pfeiffer as Catwoman, is said to have been putting in some intense preparation for the role. A source told the Mail: ‘Anne is working out five days a week. She’s taking it very seriously and wants her body in tip-top condition. ‘Secretly she hopes to upstage Halle Berry, who last played Catwoman. She’s doing dance classes, weight-training and cardio – she wants to be the sexiest Catwoman ever.”
To just put in my two cents, I think that with the current footage released of the stunt double in action, it won’t be hard for Hathaway to beat Halle Berry , ‘cause no offense, but Halle Berry was just a woman in a bondage outfit. I always call that Catwoman rendition, “She who shall not be named.” Secondly, if you notice they do not mention her outshining Michelle Pheifer. (hehe ‘cause she can’t) Anyways, below is some youtube footage of the stunt double in action, along with some clearer shots of the outfit. No offense Hathaway, but it’s just a rip off of Marvel’s Black Widow outfit…you can’t see any surprise hiding in that material.
Wow, casting news for the new Tim Burton/ Johnny Depp movie adaptation of the TV show Dark Shadows is really heating up! Two new female lead roles have just been mentioned (one more surprising than the other) for the upcoming flick about vampire Barnabus Collins (Depp).
It was announced that Helena Bonham Carter will be added to the cast as Hoffman; a specialist in rare blood disorders. Later, she aligns herself with Depp’s characters in an attempt to cure him of his thirst for blood (mmm…sounds sexy).
Also, mentioned to be joining the cast is someone whose work dates back a while with Burton (an oldie but a goodie). We’re talking Michelle Pheifer from what many refer to as epic, Batman Returns. Pheifer’s role as Catwoman mesmerized many… (or maybe just Michelle Pheifer in a tight suit mesmerized many). Either way, hopefully she can bring that magic back to the big screen again as Elizabeth Collins Stoddard who is the owner of the Collins Mansion where all the supernatural shizzle goes down!
In the past few weeks a slew of names have been released that are joining this endearingly creepy/quirky Burton film. According to Deadline,
“Eva Green is set to play the witch Angelique, Jackie Earle Haley is playing the conman Willie Loomis, while Bella Heathcoate will play Victoria Winters, the young governess of the Collins estate.”
Finally, for those of you expecting Johnny Dep to dig deep in order to find new ways to be strange you may be disappointed this time around. Depp commented,
“There’s something about the idea of this vampire coming back after 200 years into this modern world. With a touch of the poetic, with the tendency to wax a little poetic now and again. I have a good feeling about it. But Jonathan Frid’s Barnabas was so special.”
So how are you guys feeling about Dark Shadows now that the majority of the cast has been released??
