BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Even if Jonah Nolan really is the top guy on the list that doesn’t mean he’s free of competition. The Dark Knight co-writer, David S. Goyer, is also in the running
Talking on last night's The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson Cage confirmed "there's gonna be a new one" and told the host, "I just made the deal today."
Cage is in talks to put the flaming skull back on, and with his money woes of late, rest assured he'll be taking most roles that come his way. All the wheeling and dealing is in the early stages so really nobody is confirmed yet
As for Superman, Nolan quashed most of the rumors we've seen-- no Brainiac or Luthor, no evidence that Jonathan Nolan will direct it-- and promises that Superman and Batman will not exist as part of the same universe
rustratingly, The Wrap doesn't follow up on Nelson's "no deals have been signed," so there's no telling what she actually means by that. My guess is the negotiations are still at work in getting Nolan on board
Their scooper got a few details about what Goyer has planned, including the fact that it's not an origin story-- good news for anyone already familiar with Lois Lane and such, which is pretty much everyone on the planet
As we draw closer to the two-year anniversary of The Dark Knight and its phenomenal success, and Christopher Nolan's next project Inception prepares to open in July, it's clear there must be some work happening on a third Batman film
As for what that polish will entail, it's basically Goyer taking his "hard R" Ghost Rider 2 script and transforming it into PG-13, a process he says won't be as difficult as you might think, given that he wrote The Dark Knight and released it on the "bleeding edge" of PG-13
Nicolas Cage has been suggesting for a while now that he'd be game for Ghost Rider 2, and now such a horror has come to pass. Variety is reporting that David S. Goyer is in early talks to create the story for the sequel
Whether Magneto will be the focus of one, whether Ian McKellen will somehow play the role, nobody's saying, though Goyer promises "that project will move forward in the next year or so." So more vague promises"
No, Justice League doesn't seem any closer to happening, but David Goyer-- who co-wrote the recent Batman movies, remember-- wants to unite some DC villains in his prison film, Super Max
