Mariah Carey is in talks to play the mayor of Gotham City in the upcoming “The LEGO Batman Movie” at Warner Bros. Pictures. Initial reports had her playing Commissioner Gordon, but that report has since been corrected.
Carey will join Ralph Fiennes (Alfred the Butler), Will Arnett (Batman), Michael Cera (Robin), Rosario Dawson (Batgirl) and Zach Galifianakis (The Joker) in the project which is a spin-off of last year’s massive “The LEGO Movie” success.
Chris McKay will direct from a script by Seth Grahame-Smith. The film is set to hit theaters February 10th 2017.
Carey is still attached to a Christmas themed movie pitch that New Line pre-emptively bought from RatPac Entertainment, writers David Diamond and David Weissman and producer Jon Shestack.
