Nicole Kidman Offered 'Catwoman' Role

Nicole Kidman is being "purr-sued" to play the title role in Warner Bros. Pictures' Catwoman, says the Hollywood Reporter.

While she has been offered the role, sources say she is waiting on the latest draft of the script before making any decisions. Ashley Judd had been previously attached to star in the project.

Catwoman is about a cat-loving gymnast who runs an animal-grooming business. While she is a vulnerable woman, her alter ego, Catwoman, is superconfident and fights evil. The character was originally introduced in the 'Batman' comic book series before becoming a heroine in her own right. Kidman is no stranger to the Batman franchise, having starred as Dr. Chase Meridian in 1995's Batman Forever.
