Katie Holmes Prepping For Next Batman Movie?

Word has it that Katie Holmes’ motivation for getting off that post-baby weight, might not just be her pending nuptials. According to Star magazine:

Star has learned that Katie is talking to Warner Bros. about reprising her role as Bruce Wayne’s love interest, the spunky assistand DA Rachel Dawes, in Batman: The Dark Knight, the sequel to director Christopher Nolan’s 2005 hit summer flick Batman Begins. Filming is scheduled to begin as soon as Jan. 1, 2007. This news comes as a bit of a surprise to fans of the franchise because Katie’s performance in the last Batman film was deemed a disappointment by critics.

Whatever it takes to get that girl out of the house.
