Batman 3 Shoots Next Year
It looks like the sequel to The Dark Knight will commence shooting in 2009:
We recently reported that Batman 3 is among the four DC Comics film adaptations that Warner Bros. wants out in theaters by 2011. Now comes word that the sequel to The Dark Knight could shoot as soon as next year.
According to not one but two reports at Batman-on-Film.com, behind the scenes sources have informed BoF that pre-production on the next Bat-film is slated to begin around next February in Chicago for a summer ’09 shoot.
“What’s interesting is that info seems to be originating from folks who worked on TDK behind the scenes — set builders, stuntmen, film crew, etc. — in Chicago,” BoF said. “As far as this buzz coming from former TDK crew members, there’s probably something to this as you can’t hire these guys at the very last minute. If sets need to be built and other miscellaneous pre-preproduction projects need to get done, I suspect that readying these things a year and a half/two years in advance is NOT out of the question.”
As far anyone knows, TDK director Christopher Nolan and his brother and co-screenwriter Jonah Nolan have yet to sign a deal for Batman 3.
