Producer Chuck Roven Talks "The Dark Knight" -- Kinda

by | August 14, 2006 | Comments

The producers of the "Batman Begins" sequel are remaining pretty tight-lipped on sequel news that doesn’t involve Christian Bale, Heath Ledger, or Christopher Nolan, and Chuck Roven isn’t about to spill any beans he’s not supposed to…

From SuperheroHype.com: ""One of the things that we have always done–we did it with the first ‘Batman’ movie in which we were involved, ‘Batman Begins’" he explained, "[is] we don’t comment on any rumors because it takes all the fun away."

Still, he did talk a little about Heath Ledger joining the cast. "We’re really thrilled about Heath Ledger playing The Joker. As Chris Nolan said, the great thing about Heath is he commits himself fully and totally to everything he does. He’s just a brilliant, brilliant actor and you know this Joker is a very interesting dark fellow … The script is in the process of being written. There isn’t a screenplay that exists right now, so I can’t really tell you much more than that. Certainly Christian Bale is going to play Batman and Bruce Wayne … We are supposed to start shooting what we call a preshoot, which we know what that is, in January and then the main body of the movie is going to start in March," he added."
