EA's latest big movie adaptation is to be the Halle Berry-driven Catwoman project, which is due to line up alongside a number of rival blockbuster hopefuls in summer 2004, according to reports that we picked up at C&VG, despite a rather lacklustre response to early shots of Oscar-winning Berry posing as the PVC clad stiletto moggy - originally played by Michelle Pfeiffer in 1992's Batman Returns.

The Catwoman game is currently in development at UK-based Argonaut (Argo has worked for EA before of course, handling the Harry Potter PSone adventures, which sold well over a million copies), and EA is said to be very excited about prospects for the presumably multi-format franchise, having lost one of its key yearly earners this Christmas with the release of the final part of Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy. "Catwoman could be the new Lara Croft" seems to be the mindset in Chertsey.

Chances are we can expect an official announcement from EA sometime between now and the end of E3 in May.
