When previously asked about a follow up to The Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan has said that he would only do it if there was a story to tell. And the only real way of finding that out is to think about it, and then talk about that with other people. Luckily for Batman fans Nolan and writer David Goyer have been doing just that…talking and thinking!
The Dark Knight producer Chuck Roven told MTV:
“I know that Chris [Nolan] and [writer] David Goyer are talking and thinking,” Roven said. “We’re hoping, of course, that they find and rest on something that they’ll find is worthy to do, but we don’t know anything more than you do right now.”
“All I can say — because I really don’t know more than you do — is that I see no reason why, tonally, Chris would do anything different than he’s done in the first two films,” the producer said.
If Nolan is thinking about ideas for the sequel then that means there is a good chance he will return as director. We don’t want him doing a ‘Bryan Singer’ on us and leaving the franchise after two good movies, only for the third film to be directed by the man behind Rush Hour 2 and Jessica Simpson music videos. *shivers*
