You probably already know but they are restarting the Batman franchise and they have a very accomplished director at the helm in Christopher Nolan. His first film, Following, was a no-budget movie that managed to impress a lot of folks and then he did Memento which is a very well made film whether you liked its style or not. Anyway he's doing the new Batman movie and he has cast some really good, credible actors.
Christian Bale (American Psycho) is Batman/Bruce Wayne, Michael Caine is Alfred, the man who played Jim in 28 Days Later is the Scarecrow, and Morgan Freeman is also casted.
I'm really excited to see this one considering the film studio took a chance with Nolan as the director and his decision of casting an excellent actor in the role of Batman. The storyline has been described as leaning towards a more realistic take on Batman and a lot more focus is being put on showing Bruce Wayne as an actual character and not just a prelude to putting on the Batman outfit.
June 17th. Coming soon.
