Nolan to direct Batman

January 29th, 2003

Director Christopher Nolan has shown so much interest in a new Batman that Warner Bros. has signed him to direct if plans go ahead with the project. Nolan is excited about it despite the fact there are also several other Batman ideas floating around, one titled Batman: Year One and to be directed by Darren Aronofsky (Requiem for a Dream) and a spin-off with Catwoman, to be played by Ashley Judd (Michelle Pfeiffer originally brought the role to life on screen in 1992's Batman Returns).

Nolan's most recent film was last summer's excellent Insomnia, with Al Pacino and Robin Williams, a remake of an equally good Norwegian thriller starring Stellan Skarsgard (Good Will Hunting). Nolan's directorial debut was the surreal stunner Memento, with Guy Pearce.
