Aaron Eckhart is in final talks to star as Harvey Dent/Two Face in The Dark Knight for Warner Bros. Pictures.

The sequel to Batman Begins sees Dent as the district attorney of Gotham City and an ally of Batman. The Hollywood Reporter adds 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.
