Ang-felina? Here’s an odd story circling the globe. Former TV Catwoman, Julie Newmar, “has given her blessing” for Angelina Jolie to take on the role in an upcoming movie nobody has heard about, based on the fact that “industry friends tell me she has already made enquiries about the role.” Cool how Hollywood works, isn’t it? Close to a hundred Google “news” sources are running with this as if it’s as factual as somebody beating up their mom. Cool how journalism works, isn’t it?
The 33-year-old actress ‚Äì who gave birth to twins Knox and Vivienne earlier this month ‚Äì is said to be in final negotiations with studio bosses to play the feline villain who first appeared in the Batman comics.
It is not clear whether she would play the role in the current Batman film series, starring Christian Bale as the caped crusader, or in a spin-off film as Halle Berry did in 2004′s Catwoman.
or… as long as we’re being unclear, we should probably consider the possibility this is just Angelina’s dream Halloween costume. Stay tuned.
