Katie dropped from Batman sequel

Christian Bale, Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman have agreed to a Batman sequel, but Katie Holmes has been dropped.

Holmes won't reprise her role as Rachel Dawes - reportedly because Warner Bros is angry her engagement to Tom Cruise has stolen media attention away from the film.

According to a source told Pagesix.Com: "Everyone is in agreement that the movie's strength is with Christian Bale, Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman."

Speaking about Katie the source added: "She won't be in the sequel. The next romantic interest will be a much stronger actress. Warner is happy that people are now focusing on who'll be playing the Joker rather than Katie and Tom."
