Anne Hathaway - Anne Hathaway To Play Catwoman In Dark Knight Rises

Anne Hathaway has been cast as Catwoman in the forthcoming Batman movie 'The Dark Knight Rises'.

The 'Love & Other Drugs' actress has been confirmed by the film's director Christopher Nolan for the leading role of the Gotham City villain - formerly played by Michelle Pfeiffer in 'Batman Returns' - in the action movie.

In a statement, Christopher said: "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."

The 'Inception' filmmaker also confirmed Tom Hardy would be starring as Bane - a chemically-altered super villain with a high intellect who was born and grew up in prison - who has previously appeared in the much derided film 'Batman & Robin'

He added: "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."

Christian Bale will reprise his performance as the titular character, while Sir Michael Caine is expected to again play the role of Alfred the butler.

'The Dark Knight Rises' is expected to be in cinemas in 2012.
