Yesterday we reported
to you that a trustworthy source informed us that actor Liam Neeson was either signed to star in the new BATMAN
movie or closely circling the project. Today we heard from a second source -- and again, one that is known to us and whom we trust -- who tells us that Neeson is confirmed to be starring in BATMAN: INTIMIDATION GAME
On top of that, this second individual tells us that the part Neeson is playing in Christopher Nolan's BATMAN
is a villain!
Unfortunately, we don't know the name of Neeson's BATMAN
character, so it could be anyone. Characters rumored to be in David Goyer's screenplay include R'as al Ghul, Jonathan Crane (a.k.a. The Scarecrow) and crime boss Carmine Falcone.
Neeson is currently working on Ridley Scott's KINGDOM OF THE SUN
, playing the father of Orlando Bloom's character. He will next be seen in Bill Condon's KINSEY
, playing the famous behavioral scientist who broke ground by studying the sexual practices of human beings, due out this fall.
One final thing: our source swears Neeson is signed, sealed and delivered. All that awaits is the Warner Bros. announcement.
