9:57 AM TEXAS TIME: A few days ago, a story broke in a Hong Kong newspaper claiming that the crew of TDK decided to scrap a stunt that would have had Batman (Christian Bale) drop into a HK harbor due to pollution. BOF insider "A.P." called BS on the story back then and another individual close to the production of TDK told me that the story was mostly fiction. Now, the director himself says it was hogwash.

"That was my decision, nothing to do with pollution. It was simply a script decision."

"Once you see the finished film, you will understand why. As far as the pollution question goes, I honestly have no problem dumping movie stars in it."
