Cher as the Catwoman? Johnny Depp as the Riddler? What? 

Okay y'all, this may be just pure fantasy right now, but according to the Telegraph, Cher is in talks to play Catwoman opposite Christian Bale in the third Batman film from Christopher Nolan.


Look, Cher is a good actress ("Mask," "Silkwood," "Moonstruck") but isn't this a stretch?

But wait, the Telegraph is also claiming that Johnny Depp will play the Riddler, and that filming of the new Batman movie is due to begin in Vancouver early next year, with a working title of "The Caped Crusader."

More eyebrow raising quote?

A studio executive said: "Cher is Nolan's first choice to play Catwoman. He wants to her to portray her like a vamp in her twilight years.

OMG! Who are their sources? Too good to be true! AND, I don't think there's a script written yet.

So this may all just be rumors y'all.

Sorry Cher fans!

I'm Very Curious about "Benjamin Button" 
Brad Pitt, Cate Blanchett, and Tilda Swinton star in "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button." Based on a short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald, the film tells the story of a man who ages backwards.

Everyone around him is getting older and dying, while he reverses the aging process! Wow, Oil of Olay worked for him :happy

Kidding aside, I can't wait to see this movie! The teaser-trailer is engrossing, plus, Oscar-bait anyone?

The movie opens Dec. 19th, but for now, check the fantastic teaser-trailer.
