The Beverly Hills Cop star, 47, has been signed up by British director CHRISTOPHER NOLAN to reprise the role played by JIM CARREY in 1995’s Batman Forever.It's a fricking tabloid report and shouldn't be seen as anything more or less.
The surprise move follows speculation linking Pirates of the Caribbean star JOHNNY DEPP to the part.
The film, set for a 2010 release, is being developed under the working title Gotham.
Execs have also signed up rising Transformers star SHIA LABEOUF, 22, to play Robin.
CHRISTIAN BALE will return as Bruce Wayne, while MICHAEL CAINE will again play Bruce’s assistant Alfred.
Meanwhile, Brit RACHEL WEISZ is said to be up for the Catwoman role.

The Sun: Eddie Murphy as Riddler in Batman film? Insane, right?
TThe Sun in Britain must be either thinking it's satire week or they are writing tabloidish reports because there is no way in heck that Eddie Murphy is playing the Riddler in the next Batman film nor would Shia LaBeouf be playing Robin.
