One writer who is brilliant, whose translations from Bengali to English were done some years ago, is Premendra Mitra from the 1940's.
While Beckinsale will be absent from the new film, Mitra is not taking over her role as Selene.
Rhona Mitra is hot and she has the sultriness attitude that can carry on to a Selina Kyle/Catwoman character.
I'm automatically liking this movie and giving it a good review; Rhona Mitra is so hot.
Rhona Mitra is hot but the whole film feels like straight-to-dvd
