Holmes Takes 'Mad Money' Over 'Batman' Sequel

Katie Holmes is reportedly out of "The Dark Knight," but Suri's mom has picked her first post-maternity movie role.

According to Variety, Holmes will appear in "Mad Money," a heist flick from "Thelma & Louise" writer Callie Khouri.

Holmes and Queen Latifah will play employees of the Federal Reserve who hatch a plan to steal piles of soon-to-be-destroyed currency. A third female lead has yet to be cast.

It's also being reported in Variety that Holmes is officially out of the sequel to "Batman Begins." The trade paper says that Holmes "dropped out," while other Internet sources are suggesting that Holmes' character, attorney and love interest Rachel Dawes, is in the "Dark Knight" script, but that the role is being recast.

Prior to her whirlwind romance and marriage to Tom Cruise, Holmes' credits included "Dawson's Creek" and features like "First Daughter" and "Pieces of April."
