Catwoman star Halle Berry has said she wants to direct a reimagining of the film.
“I would love to direct Catwoman. If I can now hold onto what I know, this experience, and re-imagine that world the way I re-imagined this story. Bruce was written for a white Irish Catholic 25 year old girl, and I have to re-imagine it. I wish I could go back and re-imagine Catwoman and do it again. Do it again, now I know that what i know [about directing],” He said Jake Hamilton, while his directorial debut Bruises was discussed.
Berry continued: “I’d put Catwoman on like most male superheroes to save the world, and not just to save the women from having their faces broken. I’d set the stakes too high, and I think it would be better for men.” And women have to include both.”
Catwoman was not well received when it was released in 2004, and grossed $82 million worldwide. The film sees Berry’s character Patience having the devastating side effects of a soon-to-be-released skin cream after being killed by her employers. He is then mysteriously revived by a cat – which gives him feline-like powers.
Despite being based on a DC Comics character, the film had no connection to the Batman universe. Catwoman’s next appearance in live-action will be in the upcoming The Batman, with Zoe Kravitz playing Selina Kyle. The character is also famously played by Michelle Pfeiffer in Batman Returns and Anne Hathaway in The Dark Knight Rises.
