News has been dry on the Batman 3 front lately as director Christopher Nolan is busy working on Inception, which will be released in a few months time. However Deadline Hollywood may have got a scoop which suggests a script for The Dark Knight sequel may be in the works.
Recently David Goyer left his position as showrunner on TV show FlashForward, which he said was due to his movie projects ‘ramping up’. We already know one of them is Ghost Rider 2, and another may possibly be Batman 3:
…Goyer’s feature career is really heating up, since he co-wrote Batman Begins, and penned the story for The Dark Knight, and is now writing the third Batman instalment with Chris Nolan’s brother Jonah.
If true that would suggest Warner Bros. want to get a script ready so that Christopher Nolan can start work soon after he has finished on Inception. It is also likely Nolan will be working with Goyer and his brother on the script, just like he did with the previous Batman films.
