According to British tabloid The Sun, Eddie Murphy will play Gotham villian The Riddler in the next Batman movie.

Murphy has been signed up by British director Christopher Nolan to reprise the role played by Jim Carrey in 1995’s Batman Forever.

The studio has also reportedly signed up Transformers star Shia LaBeouf, 22, to play Robin. Rachel Weisz is rumored to be taking up the Catwoman role.

I don’t believe these Dark Knight sequel rumors. Christopher Nolan would cast Eddie Murphy and Shia LaBeouf? I don’t think so.

Besides, this England-based newspaper has pretty much the worst track record ever when it comes to breaking movie news.
