Christopher Nolan not signed onto ‘Batman 3′ yet

By Roger Friedman
HollywoodNews.com: As we await the Friday opening of Christopher Nolan’s “Inception,” here’s some news: Nolan has no actual directing contract for “Batman 3.”
You’d have thought after “The Dark Knight” that Warner Brothers would have sewn all that legal stuff up. Indeed, Nolan’s brother Jonathan and David Goyer are working on a “Batman 3″ script right now. Presumably, they have a contract–but you never know.
In any case, Chris Nolan is not signed to direct “Batman 3″ despite the fact that he’s talked about it in “Inception” interviews. A Nolan insider says, “One movie at a time. He’s focused on Inception right now.”
It’s hard to imagine what Nolan’s contract would look like after “The Dark Knight” was such a stunning success. But if “Inception” hits big time, Warner’s will be giving Nolan anything he wants and then some to direct “Batman 3.” Maybe Warner’s can strap him down, knock him out and get into his subconscious, and plant the idea to sign a “B3″ contract!
This also could go on for some time, because in interviews this week Michael Caine let it slip–perhaps intentionally–that “B3″ should start production next April. Also, as confirmed everywhere, The Joker will not be a character in the new movie. Expect instead The Riddler or Catwoman or maybe even The Penguin to rattle Gotham City.
But Nolan could wait out signing an actual contract for a number of reasons. One would be to pressure Warner’s to really push an Oscar campaign for him on “Inception.” Nolan was not happy in 2008 when he was overlooked for “The Dark Knight.” He listened patiently to a lot of people who explained that the Academy doesn’t really reward comic book movie adaptations.

‘Batman 3′ to lense in April 2011

HollywoodNews.com: Michael Caine has spilled the beans: the third installment in the revamped Christopher Nolan “Batman” series will begin production in April.
The actor recently revealed this tidbit to Digital Spy at the London premiere of “Inception.”
Nolan, his brother Jonathan and David S. Goyer are still toiling away on the script. Christian Bale, Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, and Gary Oldman are attached.
EW.com reports, “So far, Nolan himself has been reluctant to talk about the future of the caped crusader. Apparently he’s very much of the mindset that, until his current film, the critically-adored ‘Inception’ opens this Friday, he’s not interested in discussing details of his future projects.”
Warner Bros. has pegged a July 20, 2012 release for the third “Batman.”
A rumor on the blogsphere has been that Joseph Gordon-Levitt would play the Riddler in the latest feature.
