Veteran singer CHER has become the latest star tipped to take on the role of CATWOMAN in a forthcoming BATMAN movie.
Angelina Jolie is also rumored to be in the running for the part, if The Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan decides to resurrect the legendary comic book character.
And the moviemaker is reportedly now turning his eye to older actresses, including 62-year-old Cher – in a bid to portray Catwoman as an aging femme fatale.
A source tells British newspaper the Sunday Mirror, “Cher is Nolan’s first choice to play Catwoman. He wants to portray her like a vamp in her twilight
years. The new Catwoman will be the absolute opposite of Michelle Pfeiffer
and Halle Berry’s creations.”
Julie Newmar was the first actress to take on the role in the 1960s Batman television series. The supervillainess has also been played by Eartha Kitt, Lee Meriwether, Michelle Pfeiffer and Halle Berry.
