1:56 PM TEXAS TIME:
Not long ago, BOF
reported that the buzz out of Chicago was that a production office for "BATMAN 3" would open in early 2009
. Now, some scuttlebutt has shown up online via Ted Casablanca and E!
that may support those rumors.
The next BATMAN installment is alive and kicking—definitely......Warners sources are leaking to us that Rachel Weisz is being considered for the Catwoman. But Warners officially isn't saying bubkes. But other insiders working on the next installment, to follow up where THE DARK KNIGHT left off, say it's all so a go.
Despite some recent interviews in which he down-played the possibility of returning as director again, Christopher Nolan will for sure be back directing the third flick, we're assured by a production mole. Christian Bale will obviously rejoin his director pal....
By the by, even though Warners did not comment on any of the above movie talk, additional studio sources did confirm it's certainly "expected" Bale and Nolan will be back, pending a script which is being written as we gossip.
All I'll say is this jibes big-time with what I've been hearing off the record -- remember those criptic "All's well with BATMAN 3" comments? Anyway...
We shall see.
