According to the Hollywood Reporter, Aaron Eckhart is in final negotiations to play the character of Harvey Dent/Two Face in the Batman Begins sequel The Dark Knight.
In Batman lore, Dent is the district attorney of Gotham City and an ally of Batman. After half his face is disfigured by acid, Dent becomes the insane crime boss known as Two Face. He chooses to do good or evil by flipping a coin. Tommy Lee Jones played the character in 1995’s Batman Forever.
Directed by Batman Begins director, Christopher Nolan, The Dark Knight sees returning stars Christian Bale, Morgon Freman, Michael Caine and Gary Oldman reprising their roles, along with new comer Heath Ledger who will play The Joker.
The script was written by Jonahan Nolan (brother of Christopher) from a story by Christopher Nolan and David Goyer.
