It almost seems like a foregone conclusion that Katie Holmes has been booted from the "Batman Begins" sequel, but there’s still plenty of rumors regarding who’ll take her place. A few days ago we were informed that Rachel McAdams was circling the role, and now comes word that Emily Blunt has been invited to read for casting directors.
Ms. Blunt is best-known for her recent scene-stealing performance in "The Devil Wears Prada," and apparently it’s that role that caught the eye of the "Dark Knight" team. IGN Movies and Cinema Blend want us all to know that the role HASN’T been cast yet, but we all know it’s a whole lot of fun to play the casting game along with Christopher Nolan and company.
Cinema Blend also informs us that when Ms. Holmes left the sequel, well, let’s just say it was the decision of the filmmakers — and not of Katie herself. Or her husband.
