While the sequel to 'The Dark Knight' is being listed as in 'active development' with pre-production slated for February 2009.
Following earlier speculation that "Batman 3" may fall into its pre-production sometime in early February, another interesting rumor about the follow-up movie of "The Dark Knight" has surfaced. This time, it is said via Film School Rejects that the latest issue of Production Weekly has put director Christopher Nolan in the status of being involved in the project.
Before fans putting high hopes on Nolan signing back in, it should be noticed that there are yet confirmation on the matter from either Warner Bros. Pictures or Nolan himself. Meanwhile, a Warner Brothers executive through IESB has recently thrown down speculation on the production to begin in February 2009.
Some said that "Batman 3" is tentatively titled "The Caped Crusade". Following "Dark Knight" major hit, the possible sequel has been speculated to have baddies like The Riddler, Penguin and Catwoman with actors, such as Johnny Depp, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Cher and Angelina Jolie linked to the villains parts. Still, many details about this future project remain mystery.
