It looks like Matt Reeves has the best way to convince actors to join the cast of The Batman. Colin Farrell has just admitted that he was so impressed with the director's script that he is already excited about playing the Penguin in the Warner Bros. flick.
Farrell was recently a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live! where he spoke about his role in the upcoming DC Extended Universe flick. The Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them star confessed that he is amazed by the script.
"I'm still in the process of talking to Matt Reeves, who's the director and who wrote the script. He wrote a really beautiful, dark, moving script, really gorgeous," Farrell said.
So does this mean Farrell has a copy of the full script? Although he admitted that he does, it's not something he could easily share.
"Yeah, with a chain around my arm and cryogenically frozen script, it's all very hush-hush," Farrell said. "But it's a really beautiful script that he wrote and he has a real love for it, Matt. So we're still in the process of just finishing designing the aesthetic of the character."
It sounds like Farrell is deeply involved in bringing a completely new Oswald Cobblepot to the big screen. Needless to say, we're already looking forward to how the Penguin will interact with Robert Pattinson's Caped Crusader next year.
The Batman is scheduled for release on June 25, 2021.
