Holy Cattle Call, Batman! Young Stars Eyeing Role
LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – Some of Hollywood’s hottest young actors will converge at Warner Bros. over the next three days to test for the title role in the next “Batman” film, which is scheduled to start shooting in February.
The list of potential Caped Crusaders includes Jake Gyllenhaal, Christian Bale, Joshua Jackson (“Dawson’s Creek”), Cillian Murphy (“28 Days Later”), Henry Cavill (“I Capture the Castle”) and Eion Bailey, who stars in the upcoming HBO feature “And Starring Pancho Villa as Himself.”
Sources say Hugh Dancy, currently shooting Disney’s “King Arthur,” may test if his schedule permits and he is able to shave the beard sported by his “Arthur” character, Galahad.
The “Batman” film will be directed by English filmmaker Christopher Nolan, famed for his work on “Memento” and “Insomnia.”
