Even though she won a Razzie for Worst Actress, the critics hated it and not that many people liked it, Halle is still considering another whip at Catwoman. While at the premier for her latest film, Things We Lost in the Fire, she spoke about the discussions she had been having with director Susanne Bier.
‘She’d do a lot better job of it than the last time round,’
I probably agree with that statement, I mean Pitof hasn’t done anything to prove he is a good director. The fact that 15+ writers all had their input on the script didn’t improve things either. Susanne Bier also had a say.
‘It’s true we would like to work together again and I did suggest Catwoman to her. It would be very different, more feminist, but I think we could pull it off, so don’t count it out.’
I don’t really know what to make of this because on one hand people are saying Halle Berry is finally returning to ‘real acting’ after winning her Oscar in 2002. After the win she has been doing highly paid ‘popcorn’ movies like X-Men, Die Another Day and Catwoman. Shouldn’t she be looking forward to bigger and better projects, rather than going back to one of her worst movies? Maybe she doesn’t like mistakes and wants to go back and try to amend things? Who knows? But Bier is a great director, award winning in fact, so if things were to work out the movie might not be so bad. Well in all honesty it wouldn’t take much to improve on the 2002 effort.
If Christopher Nolan isn’t planning on having Catwoman in the Batman Trilogy then Berry having a second attempt probably wont do any harm, if things were done properly. However, I do think Nolan would do the character justice she deserves.
