Now we know how Chris Nolan will follow up The Dark Knight: he’s tackling sci-fi for Warners.
The studio has thrown down millions to nab Nolan’s script, which is still wrapped in silence but apparently a “contemporary sci-fi action pic set within the architecture of the mind”.
So… A brainy thriller, then?
Warners is planning to make it a big summer 2010 release, and keeps the director close at hand in the hopes that he’ll be inspired to keep making Bat-movies.
But hopefully this will put to rest all that chatter about Nolan being deep into pre-production on a new installment of the Bat-franchise.
Give the man some space, people – if TDK proves anything it’s that allowed a breather, Nolan comes back better than ever.
