Katie Holmes will not be reprising her role as Rachel Dawes in the sequel to ‘Batman Begins’, titled ‘The Dark Knight’.

Holmes’ publicist said that “scheduling conflicts” were the reason why the actress would not be reprising her role. She added that Holmes was busy negotiating for another project, when she was approached for the role.”Katie was offered [‘Dark Knight’] but was unable to accept the role because of scheduling conflicts. She was in the process of negotiating for another project,” Glitterati quoted Julie Polkes, as saying.

Polkes also claimed that the actress wanted to deal with a different role when she returns to work.

 It has not yet been reported who will replace the former ‘Dawson’s Creek’ actress, but filming is due to start later this year, with an intentive release date of July 18th, 2008.

‘The Dark Knight’ is set to star Christian Bale, once again as the legendary Batman, Heath Ledger opposite Bale as the Joker and Micheal Caine once again reprising his role as Bruce’s trustworthy butler Alfred Pennyworth.

Official Synopsis: Batman and Gordon find alliance with a newly appointed DA Harvey Dent to stop a vicious killer with a warped sense of humor known only as The Joker, a threat to both the good, and the evil of Gotham City.
