It's rare enough to find a movie that doesn't have a least a few fans here and there, but it's difficult to imagine anyone leaping to the defence of 2004's disastrous Catwoman. The movie starred Halle Berry as a new take on the DC Comics feline femme fatale named Patience Philips, who uses her cat-like powers to bring down an evil cosmetics company.
Catwoman was a critical and commercial flop, frequently topping many a "worst movies of all time" list. Berry has always maintained a sense of humor about her much-maligned performance, however (she even showed up to collect her Golden Raspberry award), and wouldn't mind taking another crack at the character - this time from behind the camera!
"I would love to direct Catwoman," she revealed while chatting to Jake's Takes about her new film, Bruised. "If I can get a hold of that now, knowing what I know, having this experience and reimagine that world the way I reimagined this story. Bruised was written for a white Irish catholic, like 25-year-old girl. I got to reimagine it. I wish I could go back and reimagine Catowman and have a re-do on that."
The Academy Award-winner even has an idea for her new interpretation of the antiheroine. "I would have Catwoman saving the world like most male superheroes do, and not just saving women from their faces cracking off. You know, I would make the stakes a lot higher. I think make it more inclusive of both men and women."
Zoe Kravitz is set to play the latest big-screen incarnation of Selina Kyle in Matt Reeves' The Batman, so Berry probably shouldn't expect a call from Warner Bros. about that solo Catwoman project anytime soon!
