As you might imagine, it didn't take long for Warner Bros. executives to start talking with Christopher Nolan about a follow up to 'The Dark Knight' - the film was a massive critical and commercial success. But would you believe they already whispering their plans for 'The Dark Knight Rises' to Nolan and his creative team at the 'Dark Knight' premiere? And they even had an idea for who they wanted to play the villain...
What better way to start your day than with the confirmation of a ‘Dark Knight Rises’ rumor that has been circling ever since Christopher Nolan began shooting his anticipated sequel? Now, bear in mind that this could be a major spoiler, and so if you wish to go into the theater on July 20 with as clean a slate as possible, leave this page now.
Christopher Nolan has close to four months before his wildly anticipated 'The Dark Knight Rises' reaches theaters, but reports say he recently delivered his first rough cut of the trilogy finale to Warner Bros. executives.
The report says Nolan has been “a fixture” on the studio lot lately as he put the finishing touches on his first pass of the massive blockbuster. Jeff Robinov, president of Warner Bros. Pictures, and production president Greg Silverman are among the select group who were able to see Nolan’s first cut of 'Rises'. Details about the screening, of course, were kept under lock and key.
