A Few days ago, I wrote that I felt that the news that Johnny Depp and Philip Seymour Hoffman were going to play The Riddler and The Penguin was not true. Well it has been confirmed to be false information. In a recent interview(which The Movie Blog reported on), Mr. Hoffman is stated as saying:
“No one has talked to me about it ever — never,” replied Hoffman. “It happened, like, five years ago, too. It was a rumor back then and it’s still a rumor. [laughs] It’s just in the press. It’s funny.”This is not a surprise to me. I'm just surprised at how easy it is to get these stories going.
