Nolan Tired Of Batman Casting Gossip

Director Christopher Nolan is urging film fans to stop speculating about casting for next Batman film - because he is tired of explaining the online gossip to studio bosses.
Rumours about which actors will join Nolan's third superhero film have been rife ever since The Dark Knight hit cinemas in 2008.
Internet gossip sites have been filled with reports about the possible addition of feline femme fatale Catwoman to the next installment in the film franchise - Megan Fox, Angelina Jolie, Cher and Kate Beckinsale have all been linked to the part, while Shia LaBeouf, Johnny Depp and Eddie Murphy have also been linked to the picture.
Warner Bros. film studio chiefs were so exasperated about the gossip they issued a statement last year (09) about the casting speculation, stating: "It's rumour. There is no script. There is no project to be cast in."
And Nolan admits he's tired of movie bosses asking him about the rumours.
He says, “The studio called me and said: ‘Why did you cast Cher?’ It’s clear they had been reading things online.
“At a very early stage after taking on Batman I realised it wasn’t going to be helpful to read what people were saying online. I don’t really look at the internet. I don’t even e-mail - it gives me more time to think.”
