Hathaway, Knightley and Biel compete for Batman roles


Anne Hathaway, Keira Knightley and Jessica Biel will fight it out to star as Christian Bale’s leading ladies in Christopher Nolan’s forthcoming Batman film.

The three Hollywood beauties are expected to complete screen tests for The Dark Knight Rises by the end of the month.

It is not clear which roles the actresses will audition for, although Nolan is looking to cast a female villain and a love interest, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Acting newcomers Kate Mara and Charlotte Riley are also in consideration, while Bond girl Gemma Arterton has also been linked to the project.

Production is due to begin on The Dark Knight Rises in May in London and Los Angeles.

It will be Nolan and Bale’s third collaboration in the Batman franchise.

    I really hope that Biel gets the part, she needs to be in more movies what with her being talented and very gorgeous (as is the lovely Anne Hathaway but I have my favourite). Knightley wouldn’t interest me and Gemma Arterton’s career needs to stop before it gains any more momentum. The Disappearance of Alice Creed was decent despite her but all of her other roles have amounted to nothing more than a reactive shrug from me.

    Of course, by now you have seen that Hathaway got the part. I loved her in Ella Enchanted and one or two other things, but I haven’t really liked her or her movies since she turned into an adult.
