It’s no secret that I have a man-crush on director Chris Nolan. I swear, I was a fan of his before
he entered the world of “Batman On Film.” Of course, it doesn’t hurt that he directed BATMAN BEGINS
and THE DARK KNIGHT
The man’s a brilliant filmmaker.
The whole point of this is to say that I’m such a C-Nol fan, that BOF will be covering his next film, this INCEPTION -- which is said to be a contemporary sci-fi actioner set within “the architecture of the mind.”
Really, that cat could make a film about the adventures of a rock outside of Austin, Texas and I’d be down with it. Anyway…
Besides the fact that BOF will be covering INECEPTION, I’m figuring y’all are thinking “What does this have to do with BATMAN 3?” Well, here goes…
From what I’ve been told by my industry insiders, INCEPTION is going to shoot from late Spring to early Winter 2009. And knowing how Chris works, he’ll do post right up until its July 2010 release date. At that point, I figure he’ll take a bit of a break and THEN go to work on BATMAN 3 sometime before ‘10 comes to an end. That’ll give him -- and “Bat-Team Nolan” (Jonah Nolan, David Goyer, Emma Thomas, Charles Roven -- and ALL the great folks who’ve worked on the previous two films) -- the proper time to give us a great sequel to THE DARK KNIGHT.
So chill y’all, a third Team Nolan-directed BATMAN is coming. And you think 4 years sucks? Try living the hell we old bastards went through after BATMAN AND ROBIN! Now back to this INCEPTION…
When I read the recent CASTING NEWS, I did my homework and checked out this Marion Cotillard. The very first thing I thought was, “This chick’s going to be Catwoman!”
To top it off, a buddy of mine “In The Biz” shot me an email today saying the exact same thing -- which means NOTHING except that we both kinda know Chris and are speculating.
Look, I’m certainly not saying or suggesting anything, but this chick fit’s the bill in the following ways:
1) She can ACT!
2) She will have worked with Chris
3) She’s HOT as Hades!
Hey, I'm just saying....
