Casting begins on Christopher Nolan's THE DARK KNIGHT RISES

It's only the beginning of 2011, but there's no doubt that one of the most eagerly anticipated movies of 2012 will be the sequel to Christopher Nolan's record-breaking "The Dark Knight". Warner Bros. has announced that Anne Hathaway has been cast as Selina Kyle in “The Dark Knight Rises.”  She will be starring alongside Christian Bale, who returns in the title role of Bruce Wayne/Batman. 

Christopher Nolan stated, “I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Anne Hathaway, who will be a fantastic addition to our ensemble as we complete our story.” In addition, Tom Hardy has been set to play Bane.  Nolan said, “I am delighted to be working with Tom again and excited to watch him bring to life our new interpretation of one of Batman’s most formidable enemies.”

Nolan will direct the film from a screenplay he wrote with Jonathan Nolan, from a story by Christopher Nolan and David S. Goyer.  He will also produce the film with his longtime producing partner, Emma Thomas, and Charles Roven.
“The Dark Knight Rises” is slated for release beginning July 20, 2012.
