‘The Dark Knight’ is Alcon Entertainment’s template for ‘Blade Runner’. Now, if they could only get that ‘Dark Knight’ guy…
Here’s a video for anyone who has trouble comprehending the vast nature of Christopher Nolan’s all-around awesomeness.
Viggo Mortensen (‘Lord of the Rings’) may play General Zod, the villanous scientist who kindly requests we kneel before him.
Pull out those kooky suitcases, cause we’re all going back to ‘Inception’ Land… maybe.
Marion Cotillard was seen by a friend of a friend getting fitted for a utility belt and cowl.
Scorcese may have shed some light on the earlier years of Hughes’ life, but it sounds like Christopher Nolan may want to play the back nine.
We have all the info here, and there’s no need to tattoo this blog post across your chest.

Visual Effects Supervisor Paul Franklin says Catwoman will be all Anne, not like the Halle Berry cartoon.
Incoming message from the Big Giant Head: actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt is in talks to play a character in Christopher Nolan’s upcoming ‘The Dark Knight Rises.’
This isn’t the Golden Globes, people. This is the Academy Awards (a.k.a. the real deal). But just because the awards are real doesn’t mean the reactions from the nominees will be. That’s why we’ve spent all morning running said reactions through our patented B.S. translator.
This week it was announced that Anne Hathaway will play Selena Kyle/Catwoman in Christopher Nolan’s upcoming The Dark Knight Rises, but was she the best actress for the job? Fight!
Finally, we can quit all the B.S. rumors.
While I don’t blame a 63-year-old man for wanting to move away from action films, choosing a dramatic role right out of the gate might be a little risky.
Batman might patrol Gotham City, but the internet is Gossip City with casting and other news about the upcoming sequel The Dark Knight Rises.
I don’t know why the fate of Two Face at the end of The Dark Knight was ever up for debate. Probably because it is a Christopher Nolan movie and people are all about obsessing over the ends of his films.
We didn’t expect big Batman news from Christian Bale while he’s promoting his new drama, The Fighter. He doesn’t shoot until next year, but I thought at least I could get his reaction to the title Christopher Nolan announced. Bale doesn’t even believe it’s going to be called The Dark Knight Rises.
Warner Bros., director Zack Snyder, and producer Chris Nolan are on the prowl for a Man of Steel. In their search, they’re open to creating a star for the Superman reboot. Hey Kid, ya wanna be a star?
Christopher Nolan is getting actresses lined up in a pretty little row for The Dark Knight Rises casting. Doesn’t sound like Charlize and Vera are in the mix anymore, unless this is some kind of elaborate rouse, and if that’s the case, Nolan **shakes angry fist**
Whiny love interests have been a hallmark of Christopher Nolan's Batman films, so it comes as no surprise that a leading lady will be needed in The Dark Knight Rises. Make that leading LADIES. Comic Book Movie is reporting that Charlize Theron, Vera Farmiga, and some other chick are up for parts in the film.
Theron is rumored to be up for the role of Detective Sarah Essen, a character who in the comics knocks boots with Commissioner Gordon. Vera Farmigia's Batman future isn't as certain though. It's reported that both she and newcomer Kacie Thomas are in the running for the role of Bruce Wayne's love interest. Take this all as rumor at this point, but the film's villian has not yet been announced. Perhaps we'll see one of these actresses step in as Catwoman. If so, my vote is for Theron. She more than holds her own on-screen and she has experience with pleather.
No, you keep missing it.
Christopher Nolan has revealed to Hero Complex that the title of his third Batman film will be The Dark Knight Rises. I'll give you a minute to clean the crap out of your undies. He also revealed that The Riddler will not terrorize Gotham in the film. Okay, clean the rest. Gosh, you're as excitable as a poodle.
Nolan also noted, "We'll use many of the same characters as we have all along, and we'll be introducing some new ones." So he's not revolutionizing the sequel as we know it in cinema. Warner Bros. has also been convinced that IMAX rather than 3D would be a better way to go with the film. I'm not certain why they aren't considering both, but apparently more news on that will be revealed later today. Honestly WB, you could charge $50 a ticket and people would pay it. Well, not poor people, but they don't deserve blockbuster entertainment anyway. (via /Film)
Christopher Nolan enjoyed working with Tom Hardy on Inception so much that he's brought him on to star in his third Batman movie. Warner Bros. won't divulge any details, but everyone's assuming Hardy will play a villain. One thing is for certain: he won't play Batman. That's Christian Bale's role, silly.
If you're upset that Hardy's dropping Mad Max for Batman, don't fret. He'll be back on that project when (if?) it ever gets going again. God hates the production of Mad Max almost as much as he hates Transformers 3. So Hardy as a Batman villain? What say you, commenters? (Deadline)
"You don't know what a HUG is?"
Warner Bros. is planning to start shooting Christopher Nolan's third Batman movie in April in the fine city of New Orleans. Yes, I'm displeased by this news too. I was hoping shooting would start next week in the Rite Aid parking lot across from my apartment. My reasoning for this is two fold. 1) April is too damn far away. I want another Nolan movie, especially another Nolan Batman, in theaters ASAP. 2) New Orleans is too far away. If the film were shot in the Rite Aid parking lot across from my apartment I'd be able to watch all the action go down. With enough green screen and CG they could rearrange the homeless people to make it look like Chicago/Gotham. (Coming Soon)
From the brilliant mind of Christopher Nolan comes a brain-twisting, dazzling spectacle of light and sound. You won't believe your eyes as you're sucked into the mysterious, fascinating world of the dream with only your instincts as your guide. Betrayal! Mischief! Mayhem! Love is lost. Hope is found. It's a nail-biting, teeth-clenching, hand-wringing thrill ride. Hold on tight as intrigue envelopes you. You won't look at the world the same after you experience…Inception!
Superman rescues mini Zod. It doesn't matter why.
Yesterday's announcement that Zack Snyder would helm the Christopher Nolan-godfathered Superman sent the movie nerds into an asthmatic tailspin. Inhalers were clutched, man-boobs heaved. Since then, details about the film have been popping up all over.
First up, Variety spoke to Snyder, who says it's unlikely Brandon Routh will reprise his dual role of Superman/Clark Kent from Bryan Singer's film. "We're looking in another direction," was the official comment. "Bitch, is you crazy?," was the non-official comment.
Secondly, The Hollywood Reporter is Hollywood reporting that the villian who will be throwing entire buildings at Superman in the new film will be Superman 2's General Zod. Originally played by Terrence Stamp, but hopefully played by Liam Neeson in this version. Has anyone tried to get him on the phone yet? It's not like he says no to movie roles. The man would hand out flyers in a chicken suit if the price was right.
Superman rescues mini Snyder. It doesn't matter why.
Zack Snyder is the lucky S.O.B. who has landed the directing gig for the Christopher Nolan-produced Superman: The Man of Steel. The Watchman and Sucker Punch director beat out Tony Scott, Jonathan Liebesman, Duncan Jones, Matt Reeves, Darren Aronofsky, Robert Zemeckis, and Nolan's own brother Jonah, who wrote the script. Daaaaaamn, that's cold, Chris. He's your brother. Your brother!
Family squabbles aside, Warner Bros. is a huge fan of Snyder. He's already directed three films for them, if you count the animated owl movie, and has proven he can handle major tent poles. Will Superman look awesome? Almost definitely. Will there be much emotion underneath the gloss and slow motion? We can only hope that Christopher and Jonah Nolan educate him in the way of story. That is if Jonah can quit giving him the raspberry for stealing his gig. (Deadline)
Director Darren Aronofsky is on the list of possible diectors for Christopher Nolan's upcoming Superman project, Heat Vision is reporting. Aronofsky joins a group that already includes Duncan Jones, Tony Scott and Matt Reeves.
But with Aronofsky in the running, there is also talk that another director has been ruled out…
Ben Affleck, who is soaring after The Town became both a critical and commercial hit, and who actually played superman (or at least the man who became known for him, George Reeves) in Hollywoodland, took a meeting about possibly taking the job, but has apparently moved on to other things.
Something tells me that Affleck moving on to other things before hearing back from the producers is a lot like me moving on with my love life before hearing back from Salma Hayek…or those lawyers, of hers. (Empire Online)
Now that's just super!
Christopher Nolan and Emma Thomas, the producers behind the upcoming Superman film, have begun interviewing potential directors, Deadline is reporting. Nolan will reportedly submit his choice to Warner Bros. as early as next week.
On the list: Unstoppable's Tony Scott, Let Me In director Matt Reeves, Battle: Los Angeles helmer Jonathan Liebesman (who just got the Warner Bros/Legendary job of directing Clash of the Titans 2), Duncan Jones, who just directed Source Code, and Sucker Punch helmer Zack Snyder.
What? This list is a farce! No Crispin Glover? No David Lynch? No thank you, Mr. Nolan.
Just call him Leonardo DiCoinoprio. Christopher Nolan has unveiled plans to some Romans that a video game based off Inception is in the works.
"We are looking at doing is developing a videogame based on the world of the film, which has all kinds of ideas that you can't fit into a feature film. That's something we've been talking about and are looking at doing long term, in a couple of years."
Is this a good thing? Is this a bad thing? I'm honestly not sure how I feel about this. My mind is still pretty messed up as is thanks to the end of Metroid. (Variety)
