Dark Knight Falls on Oldman
Gotham City is starting to look a lot like London. Not only is UK-born Christian Bale set to don a cowl and utility belt to play the lead in "Batman Begins," but now fellow countryman Gary Oldman has signed on to play stalwart cop Lt. James Gordon, says the Hollywood Reporter. Oldman is the newest member to join the ever-expanding Caped Crusader cast. Also on board are Michael Caine as Alfred, Liam Neeson as Bruce Wayne's mentor Ducard, Morgan Freeman as businessman Lucius Fox, Ken Watanabe as villain Ra's Al Ghul, and Katie Holmes as Rachel, a childhood friend of Wayne's. The Christopher Nolan-directed flick, which is currently filming in Iceland, is expected to hit screens in the summer of 2005.
