Christopher Nolan Starting to Plan ‘The Dark Knight’ Sequel
With The Dark Knight arriving on DVD today, director Christopher Nolan has been making the rounds of interviews and of course, everyone wants to know about the third film.
Slash Film reports that Nolan is interested in filming the entire third film in IMAX after having success with several sequences shot that way for the current feature. He speculated that a work around to the noisiness of the IMAX cameras would be to shoot the action in IMAX and the dialogue-driven scenes with a 65mm camera.
Nolan also told USA Today that he has been “jotting notes and doing some rough outlines” for a third story. Obviously, Warner will happily green light a third installment just as soon as there’s a story that captivates the director’s mind.
“It was obvious when the box office was so big ($530 million domestically) that we had underestimated how ready fans were to reboot the franchise,” he said. “The worst thing you could do now that you’ve gotten the plane back in the air is mess up the landing.”
