Anne Hathaway on a possible Catwoman movie
Anne Hathaway remains keen to reprise the role of Selina Kyle. But will she get the chance?
Anne Hathaway has had quite a year. Awards attention is following her performance in Les Miserables, which is turning into a major box office smash. And, of course, there was the small matter of her turn as Selina Kyle in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises. That made a few quid too.
It's while she's been doing promotional work for the former that she's ended up chatting about the latter again, as Simon Mayo on Radio Five Live questioned her as to the possibilities of a Catwoman spin-off film. "There would always be interest in the wonderful character who I love so much that in a recent Q&A where I had to get up and talk about it, somebody asked me what it was like to say goodbye to her and I burst into tears", Hathaway said. "Which is just about the most un-Selina Kyle thing you can do".
While Hathaway would be keen to reprise the role, though, she knows nothing of any substance about it happening. "Nobody's talked to me about it", she said. "I'm a big fan of the idea, but there's nothing happening. It just kind of exists in my imagination".
Should Hathaway, as is a strong possibility, take home an Oscar for her performance in Les Miserables, then she may end up following the path trodden by Halle Berry should Catwoman happen. After all, Berry won an Oscar, and then took on a Catwoman movie a couple of years later. Here's hoping it'd turn out a lot better for Hathaway though...
