Rumors about Cher Playing the Next Catwoman

If I had a dollar for every film role Cher was rumored to be in the running for...I go get me some Shakeys pizza.

One news report says “Veteran singer Cher” -- veteran: that's a new one -- is first in line to play Catwoman in the next Batman movie.  This we hear is according to the franchise’s director Christopher Nolan. However, Angelina Jolie is also rumored to be up for the part.

According to 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.

This doesn’t mean Cher has agreed, responded or even been approached officially yet for this part. So don’t go updating your Cher-filmographies, batkids. In fact, many entertainment news site are expressing their deep skepticism about this particular rumor.

I read yesterday that the rumor was exactly that - a rumor. HOWEVER - it would be amazing, that's for sure. Catwoman was always more of a "woman" in the early days of Batman - having a sexy slut like Angelina is much too predictable.

I believe she could really stretch her creative legs if she has/takes the opportunity to play Catwoman. I mean, after all, look at the critical acclaim of both Dark Knight and Batman Begins. They're actually character analysis films instead of silly running-through-the-motion-pictures.

And Cher Scholar, if Cher indeed does play Catwoman, what do you think kind of impact this will have on her career? Will it be yet another comeback or yet another bomb?

Mike

And completely unrelated (since I'm in LOVE with your essay on "Stars"), do you believe "Stars" would possess its cult fan following it has if it were a bigger success commercially when it was originally released?
